Meanwhile In Downtown Camden

Tyler Durden's picture

As we reported earlier, Camden may be broke, the local police may now be history, unemployment may be 50%, it may be nothing more than one big crack cocaine depot and driving through downtown at less than 88 mph may be hazardous to your health, but that wasn't always the case. In fact, back in 2009 the city had enough money to afford billboards. Such as this one on the intersection of Dr Charless Brimm Blvd and S. Broadway, courtesy of Google StreetView (sorry iPhone 5 users: you can't see this). Brought to you by

The BERNANKE cometh with the fiat,

I am proud to announce that next Weekend I will be hosting a modern art exhibition for charity in New York City. The title of the exhibition is “What Is Art?”, and it will consist of an array of innovative pieces ranging from a half-eaten apple painted blue to represent individuality and self-expression, to some thought-provoking cardboard boxes which represent the heartlessness of modern capitalism and materialism. Some of the coolest names in modern art will be there, and the event is expected to attract some of the trendiest art enthusiasts.

Tickets will be $500 each, and a portion of the proceeds will go to the IPCC to fund research into climate change. If you want to make a positive impact in the world, then you absolutely have to be there. There are no excuses for not contributing to the cause, and for those who can’t make it, I would appreciate a donation to fund the event and the cause.

I'd be happy to contribute.  Whats yer email address?

MillionDollarBonus_'s picture

Donations don't work that way. Just PM me and I'll give you the account details. I expect donations to be upwards of $300. Remember, a portion of each donation will fund research that could save the lives of millions of children, so be generous. Climate change must be stopped. The climate was never meant to change, but sadly human activity has upset the natural equilibrium, and millions in the third world are suffering as a result.

Well...., if it's for the children, count me in.

I would like to pitch in a CDS on an IOU from a friend which is backed by a rehypothicated zero coupon T-bond he owns.  He says some day it will be worth something, so are the donations tax deductible?

Geezuz.. liquor store, a Sam’s, lots of parking, no traffic jams, no cops.. the place has potential.

Do you accept bitcoins over the TOR network?

Much better, MDB. I assume your art gallery is next to that new coffee shop on Bedford Ave. in Brooklyn?

I'm so there!

Not to rain on your parade, but as it's an ART exhibit, and for the CHILDREN - I hope you've cleared this with both The National Endowment for the Arts and The National Education Association. Also, I hope all the artists are union members, and patriots.

Not enough cow farts to warm things up for them.

As an American, I say we are doing more than any other nation out there regarding global climate change. Look at how many people have taken it upon themselves to store carbon on their very person!  You should be walking up to every obese person you meet and shaking their hand for saving the planet. Maybe identify the largest planet savers with a tee shirt, call em "Heat Sink Nation".  The art fest is a nice idea as long as you serve hamburgers and fries to promote heat sinking. Maybe a nice performance art piece where the artist punches skinny people for killing the planet.

And pay no attention to the giant fucking furnace we circle.

Oh good, if you guys are "doing more than any other nation" and exclusively picking up the environmental bill I guess, as an Australian, we can finally put that Carbon Tax in the bin and start driving 3,000kg vehicles again.

I'm all for an extended summer.

First +1 you've ever gotten from me.

MDB can we swipe our EBT for dat donation?

Can't global warming be cured with nuclear winter and we go there we could get a bonus for the economy with a number of broken windows

I will donate some carbon emission futures to the cause.  Make your futures account routing codes public on this forum so I can transfer them.

Well-played, MDB. Like the direction you went in there.

As long as all the food is kosher, gluten free, soy based and no drinks are larger than 16 oz, I'm in.

I only attend art exhibitions with porn and free lap dances. But, best of luck, nonetheless.

Perhaps you could print and frame some of your comments from ZH and call it: Bombastic Bullshit. Sounds like it would fit right in.

Blammo's picture

I represent the Bilderburg group. Your appeal has made us decide to change our ways, and we'll be donating the Holy Grail, to your cause!

EscapeKey's picture

Wouldn't want to miss it for the world. What a worthy cause.

9/10. Almost as good as Zoolander's "Derelicte".

Black Forest's picture

Thank you very much for your kind invitation. I would be glad to attend your first class exhibition, and speed up our fight against climate change. Could I settle your apiece expenditure in fine EUR instead of USD? I am sure, you will be proud to physically hold a currency used by many progressive people like me living outside of the United States.

It's times like these I feel weak and powerless for only being able to click the up arrow once.

climate change is the right wings version of performance art.

errrr left wing???

fixed it for ya!

I  would subtitle your What is Art? with the phrase "Everything that is wrong with the United States".

I do not agree with the "climate change" bullcrap, or the IPCC - a Communist front group, and view sending them 1 cent, as endorsement of suicide.  You should raise the ticket price to a much larger sum.

(By the way, I've got a half eaten sandwich .... that's got some green shit on it, in the fridge, I could let you have it for say $5,000).

So, just like, "if anything is art, nothing is art", you can say, where "anything is government, nothing is government"?

I'm just waiting for Netflix to move "Mad Max" from the list for Action/Scifi, to Documentary.

Wonder why the faces have been blurred out?

Are they blurred out?  I thought they both just look like Cramer's butt.

So, the Google privacy filters are also fooled by the cartoon facade of Obummer and his bag man? So lifelike, yet so lifeless.
