This billboard “story” was kind of a big deal, but let’s move on. Someone was obviously motivated to put their message on a billboard. Most of the rest of us don’t have that kind of cash. But what if we did?
Here’s a blank billboard. Click the image, download the picture and design your own billboard and message and send it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’ll post them here.
It doesn’t have to be about politics; in fact, I’ll buy you a puppy if it’s not.
