So funny

Hey, did anyone else happen to notice the Palazzo East billboard by 3rd and Fairfax today?

Normally it says "Like Heaven, it's a gated community" (yes, I know, try to suppress the moans).

But evidently last night someone did some very elaborate (and costly) vandalizing.

It now says "Like Abu Ghraib, it's a gated community."

SO funny. It might still be up. I'd recommend checking it out because the lettering and everything is really well done.

It's on 3rd, maybe a block west of Fairfax and it's on the north side.

The picture was taken on 2/12/05. This corner is half way between a secret parking spot for the grove, and the grove itself.

Someone brought up the question if the intended audience of the unaltered sign actually understand the implications of the altered sign.

But wouldn't the intended audience only be people who would understand it? If not, than what's the point?

My head is spinning now... did you mean the intended audience of the unaltered sign? Maybe the answer is 'to make fun of the intended audience of the unaltered sign' or 'it is in inside joke with the people that actually understand the implications of the alteration (which happen to not be the intended audience of the unaltered sign)'.

Maybe this is why the person axed the question.

hmmm, wonder if it's another Jimmy Kimmel prank. When his late-night show first went on the air, he took an Oprah billboard in Studio City and put this giant mustache on her face.
