I reckon someone would have drawn one on her eventually, anyway.

There's nothing I love more than Live Theatre and incoherent facial contortions.

Possibly. What it really makes me want to do, though, is blow up a bus.

Ooh! I love Sherlock Holmes For Infants!

Perhaps it is a typo... perhaps it is supposed to read "Live Theatre Weak"

It's amazing that the mentally disabled are given an entire week to serve as a showcase and creative outlet for their own creativity and imagination. Their voices are just as important and significant to our community as anyone else, and this is just another step in their acceptance and total integration into our society and community.

I dunno. I like the Keystone Kops.

At least they're using well-known local actors to promote local live performa- hey, wait a second...

Are we calling movies non-live theatre now?

Seattle has some of the lamest ad agencies ever. Remember the folks who came up with "The West Edge" in order brand the part of downtown between Pioneer Square and the waterfront? Can we forget "Metronatural"? Oh, right, we did.

I can just hear the pitch for this image: "It's quirky but non-threatening."

"No, I'd say it's wacky."

"Yeah wacky. Wacky and friendly, like people in Seattle."

"Let's do it!"

It's a gender bending Hercule Poirot!

Live Theater: Because it's not like you can put on a tiny fake mustache and act like an asshole at home, are we right?

@ 10:

"Yeah, but let's make the most obvious, banal, condescending, Mr. Potato Head design choices we can."

"You mean from the color scheme-?"

"-To the fonts, to the art direction-"

" -To the layout! Yes! Yes! Perfect! This is the most excited I've gotten since we made those teen pregnancy hotline inside-the-bus ads!"

"Let's go get some steamed milk with vanilla syrup!"

"Fuck you dad!"

PS sorry for the spacing issues on my last post. Instant karma, obvs.

I wouldnt even get near that BUS with a 10ft pole.

It's baffling. Is it ASL?
