Satire’s obituary will be featured in Sunday’s Times

The posts have been coming a bit slowly lately because of a couple of different projects that I’ve been fiddling with for the past few days (more on that in the very near future). Recent discoveries in the public arts, though–thanks to No Treason 2005/08/12–demand notice.

poster: Watch, Ride, and Report poster: a Chinese propaganda poster

What you may not have known about yet is that the British government has decided to make everyone feel much safer with the following poster:

poster: creepy eyes floating in the air with the caption SECURE BENEATH THE WATCHFUL EYES

I’d make a joke, but the problem is that reality is outpacing any parody I could try to draw up.

Jesus. Don’t these people read?
