Ads at the Pentagon


Watching you

Originally uploaded by tbridge.

I apologize for the grainy nature of this phonecam snap. It’s the Pentagon Metro station. There are signs that say No Photography, so whipping out the digital camera might get me put on a watchlist or sent to Gitmo or something. Anyhow, there I was, off the train, headed for the bus when I saw this ad.

See, in that soldier’s hands is a Serious Weapon

    Wow! Those sure are scary — I didn’t know we lived in a ‘police state’.

    Why do you hate America, Tom?

    Wow, Don, you make such great leaps. Somehow Tom’s observance of a very Orwellian ad, not a comment on American, mind you, makes you think he hates America.

    Makes me wanna ask: Why are you so stupid, Don?

    I think that was Tongue in Cheek, Wayan.

    Yeah, sorry – it’s SUCH a common gag with me and mine I forget people actually say that seriously. We’re more likely to use it when someone’s out of mustard :)

    “You coming out to happy hour with us?”
    “No, I have to work late tonight.:
    “Why do you hate America? Our economy is depending on you!”

    And by the way – why do YOU hate America, Wayan?

    Ah, sorry – lost my irony meter somehwere. It just sounded like such a Don comment…

    The really funny thing is that based on the things we’ve butted heads on here in the past you probably have an almost perfect 180 degree opposite belief of what my politics and leanings actually are…

    I hate America.

    I hate puppies, baseball, little yellow fuzzy ducks, mom and Apple Pie.

    I used the flag to wax a Yugo.

    On the 4th of July I throw a Celebrate Communism Party and we all wear grey, stand in long lines for the same bland appetizer, and only have Safeway brand soda.

    Oh yeah… You are right, Tom. Those little yellow fuzzy ducks ARE killer. Waddling around in those lines like their crap don’t stink.

    And don’t forget Freedom. Tom Bridge obviously hates Freedom.
