I really like LeRoy Jewelers' sense of humor.

Yeah, this is an incredible sign.

Professional yet funny and good advertising for them.

Kudos LeRoy!

Niice! I always like their billboards... especially their campaign last Christmas. Something about "She's not the jewelry type"... anyone snap that by chance?

feedtacoma comments are so funny. We have discussions where people condemn clearchannel billboards and another where the same people applaud them.

I don't think these folks are applauding the billboard, they are complimenting a clever ad. It's a funny message that is platform-agnostic. Would be just as funny on a bus, although the arrow wouldn't quite work out the same way.

Man, when are we going to get a resolution on the clearchannel lawsuit? I just know it's going to end up screwed up like the Paul Post court decision, and the sooner we can start over the right way, the better.

Yeah, not a fan of the medium, but in this case I love the content!

Advertisers love the billboards, activists hate the billboards, bloggers...ambivalent.

Billboards are generally urban blight.

There is still the issue of the litigation with Clear Channel that Tacoma has.

Yet, while they are still allowed, might as well make the best use of them.

love the sinner, hate the sin

and it's a great ad!

Great use of a billboard, if you ask me. Way to go LeRoy!

Billboard = several hundred sq feet of free canvas just waiting to be used. Just BYOL (bring your own ladder).

Just because I don't like the billboards it doesn't mean I can't enjoy the humor in that ad.
