Gives a whole new meeting to staring at a girl's chest

Instead of seeing boobs, you may be watching the boob tube. The article goes a little bit into the philosophy of advertising (perhaps Ms. O'Hara would like to chime in - our resident ad-girl). On person expresses his discomfort with the growing trend in advertising to be more in-your-face and obnoxious. After all - any press is good press.

Could you imagine if they put a giant TV screen on a billboard beside the interstate? There would be even more wrecks. If it isn't illegal already, state legislatures and city councils will line up to make it so. It's easy legislation to pass. Unlike budgets for example that require actual thought and debate. But we all know that they will drone on forever about the need to protect the children and provide for public safety by banning walking tv sets.

'Billboards' that walk, talk, and even flirt a little |
