And to think that Dog screwing thing was only rated PG13!!!

Ya know, these stupid anti-signage laws are to blame. There ought to be more limits on what government can dictate when it comes to taste, a purely subjective thing. The anti-blinking lights and anti-signage has gone too far.

I always wonder what people are thinking when they make small marquees that can't possibly fit titles on them. The ones pictured appear to have been made sometime in the 1980's, but I had to laugh when I saw the marquee at the new Edwards Solono Mall theater in Fairfield (CA)- it has 16 screens but the marquee is so small it can only fit about one word for each movie they have.
For sequels I always want to put up something like "ANOTHER F---ING STAR TREK MOVIE" or thereabouts
