I had a feeling comedy would be the result
I mentioned the new "city living dc style!!" marketing campaign that the District is undertaking in an attempt to get childless yuppies (like myself) to move inside its oft-troubled borders.
Here's a PDF flyer for their kickoff promotional event to be held this Wednesday. And here's a piece of the file:
Check it out. "The District is kicking off their move-in sale."
The District is kicking off their move-in sale.
This should give you some idea of what to expect from the government if you do move to D.C.: morons. Morons as far as the eye can see. Morons who aren't even capable of publishing a promotional poster for how great they are without fucking up the grammar. Sorry, D.C., but the word you want there is "its." NO, NOT "IT'S" with an apostrophe. Just "its." Idiots.
Here's the list of thing the flyer promises for July 11:
Live music (a band called Gonzo's Nose, so obviously they broke out the A-list talent). Free snacks. Things to make/things to do. (Things to make? I suggest brewing up a batch of pepper spray.) Good weather.
Good weather! They actually promised good weather. On the flyer. Do they know something we don't? Well, no, but they're also just wrong anyway, at least according the current forecast:
.WEDNESDAY...MOSTLY CLOUDY. CHANCE OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS.
HIGHS AROUND 80. CHANCE OF RAIN 50 PERCENT.
.WEDNESDAY NIGHT...MOSTLY CLOUDY. CHANCE OF SHOWERS AND
THUNDERSTORMS. LOWS 60 TO 65. CHANCE OF RAIN 50 PERCENT.
Damp living; Gonzo's Nose style.
