Bear asked about you last weekend...wondering if you were too busy to hash. We love the bird sign and I'm still trying to figure out the CDU sign :o) Good to see you're taking time to have some fun -- NCBears 16:00, 30 April 2009 (UTC)

I am really busy, but I couldn't miss an easy hash like this. About the CDU sign: Some weeks ago, I noticed that someone put up those huge blank billboards everywhere and used a blow torch to write big question marks on every one of them. I immediately realized that was a guerilla marketing scheme, and today I noticed that they added "You ain't seen nothin' yet. B-, b-, b-, but there's more behind it" (very loose Bachman-Turner-Overdrivesque translation).
I found a nice story about the background here: http://kurpfalzrepublic.org/?p=320
It looks like the CDU put up billboards for a local election before they were legally allowed to. They were required to remove them, so they pasted huge white bills over them. Of course, absolutely nothing of that was planned in advance... --ilpadre 17:26, 30 April 2009 (UTC)
