Interactive Freewayblogging v 1.0

Just look at all that freshly-painted white cardboard, waiting to have messages plastered all over it. You know, I seem to get most of my inspiration for signs while I'm paining the cardboard just prior to printing messages. I look at all of those blank canvases and start thinking about what I'm going to put on them.

Today, while I was prepping these pieces, I had an epiphany. Sort of. (This is the part where you, dear reader, come in)

I'm leaving several of these magnificent paper products of truth and justice blank so that you, yes you, can leave your mark on the world. Let me know what you would like to see written on this cardboard and displayed on San Francisco area freeways for hundreds of thousands to read.

Some key tips to getting your message selected for public display are:
  1. Keep it short. (I can only fit so many words on these things)
  2. Humor is highly encouraged.
  3. Outrage at your current government representatives is even more highly encouraged.

Now I'm going to try and limit it to one winner, but in the likely event of receiving multiple winning entries, I may bend the rules to include more than one. After all, everyone knows that PTCruiser fans are, by far, the most witty and intelligent people on the internets.

OK. Let's put our thinking caps on, people. You can leave your entries in the comments section, or, if you're one of those shy types, drop me an e-mail with your entry and I will guarantee your anonymity up to the limit of the government reading your e-mail. (I can't do anything about that, but I'm working on it)

Let's remember that this is a friendly contest intended for fun, merriment, and of course, sedition. And, as with any freewayblogging contest, no wagering.

PT! I can't believe that you actually did those cardboards and put them up. >.<

We'd be detained by the Internal Security Act (ISA) for inciting hate towards the government openly.

I'll need some time to think before I can participate in your contest. :P

"one twenty oh nine"

"This is why you need to vote"

"Speaker Pelosi: Stop this madness, Impeach them both now"

(in case this appears twice, Blogger ate my first comment.)

I don't think I've ever visited before, but those signs you made are genius! I'd be honored if you'd do a link exchange with me.

Our favorite right now is "Bush's Ego Is Killing Our Troops"

Darn. I saw a clever bumper sticker today about impeachment and Cheney. Now I can't remember what it said.

I haven't been back to the city since last year but I may may the 135 mile trip later this summer.

I'll watch for your signs.

Push Bush for Peace.

I actually saw that on a sticker in an Iraqi-import-grocery market during Gulf I.

I'm stealing Osama's Free, Are You?. Look for it on the 205/1-5 split next weekend.

Hopefully I'm not too late, but Firefox keeps eating my bookmarks, which makes it hard to keep up.

Let's 'bout something to invoke American's imaginations (if they still have any) or incite to them to action...hmmm...I know, how 'bout


Oh geez, I'm sorry pt, it's been a bad day, but at least someone in congress has suggested (for the 137th time) we censure the president before he sticks his head back up Bush's ass.

Thomas Paine's tears are staining his satin lined coffin as he rues, "This is the legacy the founding fathers efforts have reaped?"

But like I say, it's been a bad day. I'll be better and far less impassioned tomorrow. Promise!

Wow! while I'm surprised at the huge response, I'm not at all surprised at the many excellent entries. And some of you with MULTIPLE entries. My hat's off to all of you.

After much hand-wringing and after leaving the lot of you hanging on the edges of your seats all weekend, the judges are happy to tell me that they have selected a winner.....

(Drum roll)

And the winner is...

SNAVE with "We're a country, not a church"
Congratulations, Snave. Take a bow.

But wait, ladies and gentlemen,there's more...

As I predicted, there were far too many entries to limit the sign painting to just one. That's right, folks. In upcoming posts of PTCruiser, you'll also be seeing these fine slogans on bay area freeways...

mdhatter with "This is why you need to vote"

u.s.s.r. funk with "Putin '08"

D.K. Raed with "War Dead = Lives per Gallon"

Dada with "Global's real"


and last but certainly not least, Lew Scannon with "Impeach Bush & Cheney, because lynchings are illegal"

A big thank you to everyone for participating. I hope all of you had as much fun with it as I did.

Thanks, PT! While I think mine were pretty good, I think my favorites would be "Osama's free, are you?", "Bush's ego is killing our troops" and then Dada's nice, thoroughly appropriate long one, along with my relgion reference, of course! Lots of good thought fodder and fun comments!
