Cucumber Billboard Offends Some Texans – North Texas in a Pickle!

At first glance, it looks like a cartoon character. But a closer look reveals something much more revealing. The billboard was put up by the companies Condoms to Go and Sara's Secret. KTVT / KTXA

LANCASTER, Texas (CBS) ―At first glance, it looks like a cartoon character. But a closer look reveals something much more revealing. A billboard along Interstate-35 in Lancaster is packing quite a sexual punch and some North Texans aren’t amused. – WJZ13

Here’s a peek at Sara’s Secret’s ad campaign:

North Texans usually aren’t amused. While driving through this past summer, it was all about cows, anti-abortion billboards, and most counties were dry counties (you have to drive over a hundred miles for a beer). Given the problem of the flies and the dust, maybe these billboards are the least of their problems. Sure sounds like someone will be in a pickle!

  1. Ah! I have some “people” from the once great
    state of Texas. Sometime in the middle of the
    last century – something in those ubiquitous
    paper bags one had to drink from made ’em all
    crazy. But Laura and GWB are down there prayin
    for ’em all… poor cucumbers. XOX JRS

    I’ve been hearing that Texas is going to be one of the fronts in America’s growing culture war. Looks like somebody just lobbed a hand grenade at the Conservative Christians. And I’m moving back there in 2011.
    Whew!

Eyrhaen thought to watch Tykir suck him. She felt the soothing fingers of a sleep spell seep into her mind. They sat on the dusty floor of a wide cavern. He squeezed her shoulder, his eyes gleaming softly in the absence of light. She grinned at Eyrhaen, smoothing a hand over the white patterns etched in Hyles chest. She had given them a gift, and they were proud of—worried for—her. Tykir sat on the arm of it beside him. Tykir had a warmer heart than that. Go away, go away, go away. What do you say, Eyrie? They didnt seem to mind. She wiggled, and he stopped. I love you too, he murmured, thrusting slowly. You may be different, but you most certainly belong. I doubt we could have flourished when every man is lover to only one woman. We arent exactly a monogamous society. Even if he had, she would have been his.
