The Intersection of Crazy and Billboard

How, when, and by whom was it decided that the intersection of San Fernando Mission and Balboa should henceforth be known as Crazy Billboard Corners?

First, the inscrutable advertisement for Hamer Toyota goes up, and now, a billboard that pinpoints the return of Christ as occurring on May 21, 2011.

The Hamer Toyota ad, it seems, is intended to be a permanent fixture, but I'll be surprised if Save The Date stays up much past May 22. But then again, if all of the true believers indeed get rapturized out of town, maybe there'll be no one will be left to tear the thing down and replace it with a billboard for, say, Spearmint Rhino.

The website the billboard directs us to puts the rapture at May 21 and the destruction of the earth on October 21, which means that the kids will be highly disappointed to learn they'll miss out on Halloween. But the good news is, this year, you don't have to feel guilty if you eat those bags of candy you bought for the trick-or-treaters two weeks early.

For Granada Hills, the coming rapture will mean that in a couple of months, we'll no longer be able to get free cappuccino from Center Church, so drop in while you still can. On the other hand, come June, there will be a lot more available places for food trucks to park. So it's a double-edged sword. It's also flaming, I hear.

  1. I can see it now... On May 22, the People Who Make Up This Crap will tell us, "Wellll, it seems we forgot to .... uh, .... carry the 3 in our calculations. Uh, we'll get back to you. Praise Jeebus!"

  2. May 21 is several days before my birthday. I am going to be seriously pissed if I miss a birthday just because of world wide destruction.

  3. I hope Jesus does show up. The first thing he'll do debunk the last 2000 years of false-history in the Bible.

  6. And here I thought they'd decided to celebrate Easter a month late, for some reason...

  8. Honestly I thought this was an ad for a new movie at first, but I quickly had a hunch that it may be a message of impending doom. So I looked it up and sure enough I was right. What does one wear to such an event anyway? Casual, dressy, business attire?

  9. I cannot wait until Jesus comes! I just don't think it will be the 21st of May. What false history in the Bible? Please show me where I am very interested. Thanks. The interior attire is all that matters..
