    i just got this forwared.

    i hope it makes some of you guyzs' mornin'! :)

    New billboards are getting attention in Arizona.
    Some reported seeing one or two messages, but the newspaper listed all of them.
    Here's a list of all variations of the "God Speaks" billboards.
    The billboards are a simple black background with white text.
    No fine print or sponsoring organization is included.
    These are awesome... enjoy.

    they were pretty good...

    but just a heads up....don't be suprised if this gets closed...someone will end up saying something bad about religion....even if they didn't mean it that way, and it will start a war...its happened before...

    I've thourougly enjoyed the original billboards, and personally think they're great. I gotta say, though, I did laugh at the "rejected" ones. Especially, "Have you seen my keys?" :D Good stuff.

    That is some funny stuff. I wonder what God thinks of people putting words in his mouth though?

  10. After constantly being bombarded by commercials for telephone dating services I thought "Angels are hot and waiting to talk to you! Pray now!" was pretty funny.

    Yeah, we got some down in South Florida, not many but some. Few years ago there were more, now they've taken em down and put XXX bar signs or cig ads (I thought those were illegal?).

    I thought the god billboards were pretty good.:)

    that's false advertising......;)
     
  13. I havent seen any down here...which is surprising, since this area is basically all christian.

    But it would be kind of odd if God didn't like the way they are worded or something :meh:

    but as long as its spreading the good word, then i suppose its alright.

    I'm not going to say anything...
    I'll just state that if I see those (especially some) around here... I won't be happy, at all.

    Kind of silly isn't it. If you ask me, I'd say it's sort of like mankind took a step backward. But that's me, what do I know.

    We don't have those in New Orleans, and I don't expect to see them anytime soon. However we do have these just about everywhere:

    Man, as that is the most Roman Catholic place in the US, I'm surprised that those billboards aren't on every street corner! :p

    They're all over the place in Central FL, I just laugh when I see 'em:

    "You think it's hot here?" - God

    No bozo, this is Florida, it's August, it's like an icebox here....I DON'T THINK IT'S HOT HERE, I KNOW IT IS! :D

    Used to have a Wagner's Meat bumper sticker myself, those things are great!

    Where in Nawlins you at tri? I grew up on the Northshore, in Slidell, gigged in the 'Quarter for a while, lived in BRLA for a bit as well. Can't say I miss living there, but I do miss visiting the place - luckily my family is still in Slide-hell, er most of 'em at least, so when I need a fix I gotta free place to stay.
