Strength through joy!

Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you the real Love Police! You’re going to love your life whether you like it or not!

I went out to snap this pic of the Orwellian message on this billboard and found a cop in an unmarked car waiting to give someone a ticket. After I took a couple of pictures he hastily made off.

Here’s a close-up of the advertising travesty, brought to you by Clear Channel, thejoyteam.org, and VeronikaNoize.com. It’s placed on a seedy strip called “4th Plain” in Vancouver, right down the street from a park where former homeowners squat in tents and bedrolls at night after a long day of digging pop cans out of garbage bins and begging for change on the freeway.

This billboard is usually occupied with an ad advertising the ad space. So I’m sure they brought the owner joy when they finally bought an ad. But I’m sure they could have brought joy to many others if they had actually been feeling charitable with their non-profit funds. Instead they spent it on this. But according to Ben Bernanke, you can’t buy happiness.

Many of my friends on Facebook have said that this billboard reminds them of the movie “They Live.”
