Dear Verizon

I passed by one of your billboard advertisements the other night.  I suggest you fire your ad agency for this one.

“A bare-knuckled bucket of does”?  Seriously?  That’s the dumbest billboard being displayed in the Capital District right now.  First of all, I don’t think you’ll be able to find a bucket big enough to hold a single doe, never mind multiple does.  Deer may not be as big as moose and elk, but they’re not as small as chihuahuas either.  Plus, I’ve never seen a bucket with knuckles, bare or not.  What does this nonsense even mean?  I couldn’t even tell what you’re trying to sell, but when I do, I’ll be sure not to buy it.

In more succinct billboard news, the Mega Million lottery  is up to $83 million.

    Maybe it was a really bad type and it was supposed to say: We sell phones?

    That would at least make sense. They should still fire their ad agency, though.

    What’s up with that? Verizon trying to appeal to the knuckle dragging masses by inciting thoughts of fighting and hunting? Come to Vermont, billboards not allowed!

    I wish I hadn’t read this. I’m thinking and thinking and thinking about it and it doesn’t make any sort of sense. Not even close! And now it’s just making me mad.

    Every time I see that billboard, I get a blinding headache as my brain tries to figure out just what the hell they mean.

    Oh! OH! I get it!!!! Verizon is suffering from schizophrenia. The ad is Word Salad.

    Gosh, I feel so much better about it all now.
