Homer the Street Sign

Homer Street Sign

Last Monday a blog post went up at OnMilwaukee.com (with the picture at right) about an official looking street sign some enterprising individual attached to the real street sign for Homer Street.  That is fucking cool, no matter how you slice it.  The city, naturally, saw things differently and had the sign pulled down

Now, in Milwaukee you can apparently apply for a license for street art of this nature, but in order to do so the original artist has to step forward and so far no one has.  This led to a second blog post at OnMilwaukee asking for help locating the artist.  The comments section (which seems needlessly complex) devolved quickly into bickering and pointless name calling.  So far, the Homer sign is still in the possession of the city, but if it gets put back it would be really neat.  Here’s hoping.

Useful Legal Tidbit

Even though it’s obvious to anyone with a functional frontal lobe and a shred of morality, we feel the need to include this disclaimer. This website (which openly advocates for the cancellation of a beloved television series) is in no way, shape or form affiliated with the FOX Network, the News Corporation, subsidiaries thereof, or any of Rupert Murdoch’s wives or children. “The Simpsons” is (unfortunately) the intellectual property of FOX. We and our crack team of one (1) lawyer believe that everything on this site falls under the definition of Fair Use and is protected by the First Amendment to the United States Constitution. No revenue is generated from this endeavor; we’re here because we love “The Simpsons”. And besides, you can’t like, own a potato, man, it’s one of Mother Earth’s creatures.
