ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
I saw PIL construction sign floating around the web a while back
Might be fake. Still funny.
Doesn’t have to be Photoshop to be fake. Anyone ever think that you can print a fake sign, put it up and take a picture of it?
Our local marriage councilor’s office is at the corner of Division and Union.
Now THAT’s funny!
(Chicago, by any chance?)
The circle f logo, centered on top, is confusingly similar to the factory records logo.see http://www.stolliclothing.co.uk/prodimages/factorymens_black_lrg.jpg. Studied law/IP. I do believe that would be trademark infringement. It is highly likely that all the branding (signage/internet) would have been researched before the firm launched itself. This is photo shop. But maybe not? Pic is clever.
It may also be named after the Nazi sex slavery camps that imprisoned Jewish women for the pleasure of Nazi soldiers.
No, that’s what the band was named after. No need to blame the innocent lawyers for anything except being lawyers.
isn’t a noose and “the idiot” a much less expensive way to dissolve a marriage?
Right down to the Factory Records logo!
Yeah, Ian Curtis or Ka-tzetnik 135633..
/This doesn’t count as a Godwin
I really hope this is a fake because it is soooooo wrong.
Never much cared for the song, but that is awesome.
this must be peter hook’s new money-making endeavor???
Eu nunca imaginei que teria de percorrer pelos esconsos caminhos de um ignorado sentimento, quando subitamente, ouÃ§o alguÃ©m chamar, entÃ£o espero pelo dia de amanhÃ£ e nada daÃ havia a esperar. – Ian Curtis (Roberto Autran Nunes)
its only wrong if theres no FAC number assigned…
innocent lawyers? They’re like unicorns aren’t they?
I think this is a photoshop, that shadow line is too perfect and there is a complete absence of texture in the sign and lettering. Plus I looked for these guys and all I could find was countless blogposts and websites showing this picture with absolutely no reference to where it came from.
Yup! I think it’s from a Something Awful contest from a few years ago.
In other news, the Lolrus can’t really talk about his bukkit and that’s just snow on Cocaine Bear’s face.
