Why Do We Fill our Banks with Money Instead of Filling Them with Love?

KING 5 reports that this stupid ad—which I've addressed previously—has been rejected by King County Metro, as it runs afoul of a policy prohibiting "advertising expressing or advocating an opinion, position or viewpoint on matters of public debate about economic, political, religious or social issues."

It's not particularly clear, but that stupid ad is designed to address the lack of access to healthy food in poorer neighborhoods, which I imagine counts as advocating an opinion on a social issue. But it fails so hard in expressing this point that I almost think it should get a pass.

For a full explication on the stupidity of this ad, go here.

My soul is full of Chee-tos. Why can't it be full of dog vomit?

Well in order to appear objective (due to the pro-palestinian ads that got rejected after a few dozens threats of violence from Israeli supporters), KC has to reject the random ad every now and then.

If I had the money, I'd buy a bus ad with absolutely no point or agenda. Maybe just some old internet meme.

@5 gonads and strife?

i think that the divide between class and access to fresh fruits and vegetables is nothing short of fucking vital (especially when it relates to public health care and "the obesity epidemic" [not a real thing]).

but this ad? jomotion.gif
