09/09/10 92 W, 1 I - + 3 - 2 Roadside Haiku


For your Thursday reading, here's something fun from the New Yorker web site. Bandit signs. Those are those tacky roadside advertisements that advertise such popular services as making money fast, losing weight easily, and removing hair painlessly. You see them on utility poles everywhere. In Atlanta, artist John Morse installed 500 of his own signs. The twist? They're written in the form of a haiku, that traditional Japanese poem that results in 17 syllables when written in English. Art as social commentary. Pretty amusing. Read the entire story.
