Against the backdrop of the recent pro-life billboard hacking excitement on Cortland Avenue, Neighbor Chris joined forces with a few other Bernal dads to propose a new billboard design that would be a refreshing alternative:
These are anxious times, and I wanted to reassure you about something important. Fellow Bernalites Erik Bloom, Jon Mooallem and I realized it’s incumbent on everyday citizens to ensure that this billboard absurdity continues ad nauseum. Erik (and presumably a team of top artists) put together the attached image last night. Soon as we figure out how to enlarge it 1000000000 percent, it’s going up up up.
I don’t like to use the word “hero.”
… but yet heroes they are. Let’s do this.
UPDATE: Looks like Bernal’s upstanding stoner community has some alternative ideas as well — no doubt inspired by the recent New York Times article about the joy of mixing pot with parenting. This billboard proposal just arrived from Neighbor Jon:
