A local Fort Myers FL story, but it gave me a chuckle.

ESTERO, Fla. — This story is proof that you just can't escape politics. One candidate who wants to replace Congressman Francis Rooney is campaigning in the men's restroom.

 

Some voters are accusing Naples Dr. William Figlesthaler of flushing his money away after advertising inside urinals at Hertz Arena.

 

Red, white and blue urinal screens that read, "READY TO DRAIN THE SWAMP?" are giving new meaning to the phrase.

 

 

“This is what I call splash advertising,” said political consultant Dennis Pearlman.

Someone stole my dictionary. Now I am at a loss for words.

Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day.  Deport him and you never have to feed him again.

I started out with nothing, and I still have most of it.

I went bald but I kept my comb.  I just couldn't part with it.

My name is not Richard Edward but my friends still call me DickEd

I fired myself from cleaning the house. I didn't like my attitude and I got caught drinking on the job.

Its a double-edged sword to insert anything entertaining in a public bathroom, you want people in and out, and the more they hang around, the higher potential for crime, especially vandalism. 

 

But I personally think it was hilarious.. I'd probably take a pic of it. Naturally, the media guy went and asked women what they thought about an ad in male urinals.

Did you see the story on the side of the man who had many pounds of fish & guts dumped into his Escalade?  Nasty.

We have some wacky people over on this side of the state, especially Cape Coral and Leigh Acres (you don't want to live there).

 

Must have really pissed someone off.  Wonder what is the rest of the story.
