Earth Day

This weekend I decided to recycle some cardboard in honor of Earth Day....
(Click pictures to enlarge)


Doing signs with casualty numbers is difficult not only because of the thought of how many have died needlessly, but because the number changes from day to day. I changed the numbers on the sign above twice before I took this shot. Sadly, I'm sure the number will change again before I get this sign posted on a freeway overpass.









I'm entering these signs in The Freewayblogger's Public Punditry Contest which is also posted on the Michael Moore website. Let me know which ones you like the most.


I love recycling cardboard.


Mucho thanks to my fellow freewaybloggers PsychoMikeo and Scarlet (a.k.a. dirty hippy) for the Saddam and Osama images. Without these patriots, this post wouldn't have been possible.


These signs will be going up on freeway overpasses and side-fencing this week around the San Francisco Bay Area. I'll post the pictures after I get the signs up.

Yeh, the Sadam w/caption is great. I think Mrs. Dada's gonna want a "W"idow maker.

Holy shit, pt. You're a freakin' SIGN COMPANY! How long'd it take you to do all of those (or was this something you've been doing over the past several years? ~g)

This is truly a source of inspiration. I'm breaking out the paint for Ramsey Clark's Friday visit here, followed by A-28 Saturday.

Good luck this weekend! If we never hear from you again, this'll probably have something to do with it, huh? You've made me sooo damn proud!

Although very sad...I love the Widow Maker...so appropriate. War Monger was great too. They are all super in fact.

All are excellent, PT! Toss-up for me: "I'm not in Iraq, morons!" and the conscience-tweaking "Widow Maker". I see other people like that one, too. I'd put a "W =" in front of Widow Maker for the bumper sticker version, just an idea. ~~ D.K.

PT,
Amazing. I've been searching for some good, quick slogans to paint and these are great.

Last year on the 3yr war anniversary I posted the death toll along with the $ cost in billions over the Beltway. Amazingly, that sign stayed up for much longer than the others. I think they were just expecting me to come back and update it.

Just a quick suggestion for the death tool numbers: Add a "+" at the end of a round number like, as in "3300+". Voila! Recyclable sign.

Excellent. Thanks, Froggy.

"I'm not in Iraq, morons."

Pretty much says it all for me.

I really like the War Monger one. These are all awesome, though.

My favorite is "I'm not in Iraq, Morons."

Great work!
Your fan,
Spocko
