Do Sun Glasses “Sit on your Face”?

A recently placed, then fairly quickly removed, “SPY” sunglass company billboard in Encinitas caused some buzz this week. Some thought it was funny or clever, others not so much. The Outdoor Advertizing Company which owns the billboard claims to have received complaints, but my office did not. So, does this fall under the 1st Amendment, or is it prurient in nature and therefore not in keeping with community standards? I suppose it matters little because other than the photos, it’s gone. Spy is based in Carlsbad … they don’t have billboards in Carlsbad? SPY couldn’t post clever ads on the front of their building in Carlsbad? One wonders…

The North County Times did a story available here.
