Two-pic sentences

Two signs spotted recently. Saw this one in Park Slope on the way to dinner last week, and thought it had a certain surreal quality.


I passed this campaign poster on the way home from this month's meeting of the CD-of-the-month club:


You'll notice the sign was posted on top of another sign, changing (perhaps inadvertently) the meaning of the slogan. "Mike Bloomberg. Leadership for Manhattan? Who can say?" Also ambiguous: is the fact that Bloomberg's poster is partly concealing a cigarette ad significant, given that Bloomberg is known for his antismoking laws and that the East Village is known for being filled with smokers who don't like to follow rules, maaaaaaan?

That first sign is a real head-scratcher. Who is it supposed to help? Firemen? Cupcake aficionados? Random clerics armed with aspergilla? People who are going to iron the building?

The corners of the "Portion of Building Sprinkled" sign look burned. The middle of the sign must be in the sprinkled portion, obviously.

I obtained my very first buy wow gold us from my friend. I am so Very good! I don't know what to do about it. This is certainly the second a person I have obtained currently and the turnaround time is weeks. We have been really let down.
