toss your keys

By in Uncategorized

It’s catchy. You know, football players toss footballs through the air. When I see this ad, I envision football fans pretending to be [famous football player who throws really good passes], throwing their keys to the designated driver before they crack open a cold one. I first saw this ad at Penn State, a school that has a bit of a drinking problem, so naturally they might want to try to combat drunk driving. And while Penn State plastered this message in high visibility areas, I don’t think they completely thought through this ad campaign:

Porta-potties? Seriously, think about what you’re saying and where you’re saying it. Because honestly, when I first saw this, I envisioned people tossing their keys into the porta-potty. But I do hope they bring this back next year. I drove by this every day on my way to work and it always gave me a case of the giggles. I really want to get some chalk and add a nice little ending. “Toss your keys before you toss one back and toss your cookies.”

We also have dumpsters that say “FREE” on them, but that’s another story for another time.

    BTW, weirder things get tossed in the outhouse:

    “Outhouse Pervert
    ALBANY, N.H. — A man is facing charges after police said they pulled him from a tank under a women’s toilet that was filled with human waste.

    Police said that Gary Moody, 45, was under a log cabin outhouse off the Kancamagas Highway

    “You can draw your own conclusions as to the conditions we encountered,” said Capt. John Hebert, of the Carroll County Sheriff’s Department.

    Police said that they got a call from the parents of a teenage girl who said that when she went to use the facilities, she saw Moody’s face staring back at her from the hole.

    Moody was hosed off before police cuffed him.

    “It’s a very filthy environment, and before we put anybody in contact with him, we had to decontaminate him,” Hebert said. “We treated him as if he were hazardous material.”

    Police said they don’t know how long Moody was in the tank, but they said the door to it was locked, which means he must have gone in through the toilet. They said they don’t know why he was there.

    “I started this business in 1980, and I have never in my career encountered anybody in this type of situation,” Hebert said.

    Police charged Moody with criminal trespass, and they said he could face more charges. He is out on bail and due back in court next month.”
