Public service announcement

Just in case Julia Roberts reads our blog (ha!).

This is (below, left) an Academy Award: ....... and this (below, right) is a parking placard:

They're not interchangeable. Not even in Los Angeles. (Correction: Malibu.)

Any questions?

Nicely done!

What's Britney's excuse, I wonder?

Sara said...

Wow, that is just depressing that she did that.

I'm thinking of starting a blog of shame where I photograph cars -- including their license plates -- parked in handicapped spaces. Do you know if something like this already exists?

The reason I haven't already done it is that here in Massachusetts -- and this is TOTALLY unrelated to your post; please forgive me -- you have to wait until you are disabled to get a placard (knowing you are about to be temporarily or permanently disabled, as with a planned amputation, is not enough), and then you have to get your doctor to fill in the form, and then there is a wait time of literally weeks before the placard arrives in your mailbox. That's a lot of time to be in pain or otherwise impaired without official sanction to use resources which have been reserved just for you, and I never fault anyone for jumping the gun in a situation like that.

Still, most offenders really are offenders and sometimes I itch to call them out, celebrity or no. Because no, really, really needing a pack of cigs or a quart of milk is not the same as having a condition which causes you pain with every step or a wheelchair which requires you to use extra space getting in and out of the car.

A.--I give up trying to understand anything Ms. Spears does. She might be moving into a neighboring town, though. If I run into her (hopefully not in the automotive sense), I'll be sure to ask.

Sara--you're looking for -- check it out.

Sara said...

Wow, I have tried to visit on two different days now, and my computer just will not connect to it for love or money. Well, I haven't actually tried money. Still, very odd.

I will try again another day. Meanwhile, thanks for the heads-up!

The word "shanzhai" is very popular in China. It is industry phenomenon of imitation, high quality and low price. Moreover, cell phones are the representative of them.The global financial crisis led to a significant shrinkage of assets for people. "china wholesale" demonstrate the might. most of them would like buy the cheap cell phones now .

Through google search engine, when you put in "discount cell phones", you will find more than 15,000 pieces of related information. Cell phone china has been concerned in the world. Many international sellers can get a considerable profit by ways of wholesale cell phones from China and switch selling. So it is a very good job on cell phones wholesale in the current financial crisis.
