New York Shitty Day Ender: Best. Billboard. EVER.

This, what is hands-down the best advertisement to grace Kings County and perhaps even the world, hails from Marine Park and comes courtesy of my good friend Rowan. She was kind enough to not only give me permission to feature the above photographs but also took the time to give me the “back story” behind this piece of anatomically correct advertising. She writes:

I (we – two other friends were there, too) saw this while driving on Flatbush Ave. in Marine Park… the conversation went something like this:

Emily: oh look, a giant billboard about hemorrhoids. gross. (everyone laughs and ews). then, we move a few stop lights closer…

Me: What is that in the word proctology? Is that…an ASS?!? (HAHAHAHA!)

Emily: OH MY GOD! It IS an ass! (HAHAHAHA!)

Chris: Holy SHIT, it’s an ass. (HAHAHAHA!)

Me: Or a hemorrhoid? No, that’s going too far.

Chris: It could be a piece of corn, too.

Emily: No, it’s an ass. AN ASS!

At this point we are laughing uncontrollably. And I’m thanking my stars that i got into the habit of taking my camera with me whenever i go anywhere.

You’re not the only one.

Laughing uncontrollably.

And thanking her lucky stars you carry a camera everywhere you go! What’s more, I’d like to shake the hand of the man (or woman) who came up with this punchy piece of ass typography. Wait— I take that back:

I have a pretty good idea where his (or her) fingers have been.
