As far as I can tell, it's a rhetorical question.


My story? Well, Aldo, I walk around Manhattan with a camera looking for advertising billboards that make absolutely no fucking sense. Like yours here. I went to your website to file my story—as your billboard seems to be asking me to do—but found nary a word about Aldo customer stories, kinky shoe stories, or any fucking stories at all. That's my story. Oh, also, I don't like a lot of things in this world, now including the ugly-ass manboots pictured (click image).

Cupranter, you seem to have a lot in common with Donnie Deutsch. Have you thought about having your own talk show? Well, maybe you should. There are a lot of receptionists out there who will simply love you.

Right, except that Donny Deutsch is a douchebag and Copyranter... well, I get the feeling Copyranter would rather wear those Aldo boots than be bothered hosting a talk show.

Aldo And His Brothers -- wasn't that an Italian neo-realist film back in the '60s about a shoeless peasant family from Sicily and their struggles in the north (of Italy)? Seems like they've come up in the world...or at least Aldo has.

I really hate the billboard (think it's Aldo) that used to be right around there, above the subway, with those guys from Good Charlotte about "seeing no evil" to prevent AIDS, and one twin was all biting his lip like he was a total jackass and the other one looked like he was constipated and squeezing. Did this one replace it? Cause I can't decide which one is worse...

Another 'Tell Us Your Story' campaign. There’s something you don’t see much of.

Not that we’ll have a clue what to do with them all. But it sure looks cool as shit in our sales meetings: "Hey look what this one did with her boots, a midget and a strap-on.”

re: Copyranter having his own show like Donnie Douche?
Friends don't let friends have a show on CNBC.
Which might explain Keith Olberman.

There's an even more bizarro one at Yonge and Gould in Toronto- it's just a woman with her mouth wide open with what looks like a tiger puppet. No shoes... only heads.
