Here's the Recycling Ad That Was Deemed Way Too Racy for Plano

PlanoRecycling.gif
The ad above was intended to go on every electric bill in the city of Plano, part of a marketing campaign that would be "bold and memorable," Sustainability and Environmental Services Director Nancy Nevil told the City Council on Monday, according to the Morning News.

"We feel like we need this type of campaign in order to increase our recycling -- to get people talking about this and to generate some buzz," she said. "We know this is very different from Plano's usual, more sophisticated approach. People are so inundated with messaging that you really have to do something that is going to get their attention."

Mayor Phil Dyer, ever vigilant about protecting the minds and sensibilities of the innocent public from such outrageous prurience, disagreed.

"I get the tongue-in-cheek part of it, but I just can't go with this one," he said. "I am really sorry."

I kind of see what he means. After all, what is this "It" the mystery vixen wants us to "Do?" I thought it was recycling, but now that Dyer mentions it, she could be referring to something else entirely. Like vacuuming. Or -- and this is probably a reach -- sex.

And to think how close the people of Plano came to having their eyeballs sullied by such smut.

@TinyParkGallery @glasstire @dallas_observer Should we really be promoting the insanity that is Plano? Or the whole of North Dallas?

Recycling sex has marketing promise:

Plano.  They were just named the number one fast food consuming city per capita in America.

The ad wouldn't have generated any buzz or got people talking if His Honor had just kept his mouth shut.Then Plano residents would have opened their electric bills, glanced at this ad -- "bold and memorable" only in the imagintions of ad folks and politicians -- yawned, and dropped it into the wastebasket.

I support both city and state rights, so I won't complain about their decision. Also, I don't live there.

I'm still trying to figure out what the garbled text between "Do It In Every Room" and "RecycleRightPlano.com" says - and means. Probably subliminal messages about the myth of global warming.

This is not suitable for a city-run, city-paid campaign.   Kiddos don't need to see this.   And it sucks.

Fine! Don't do it ever again, anywhere. Just sit alone, untouched and unloved in your dining room silently eating meatloaf. May neither your genitals nor your heart ever know joy again as long as you live. There. Are we happy now? Also, don't forget to put out the recycling on Tuesday. Since there is no loving (real or implied) going on in Plano, there should be no excuse for putting out the recycling. All you horny suckers down in Dallas proper, just get around to the recycling when you can please.

I find it hilarious that this was pulled because it has slightly racy overtones rather than for the fact that it's an idiotic premise for an ad campaign to encourage people to recycle.

What is even more interesting is that the campaign was to be funded by a grant from the NCTCOG.

 

Where do they get their money from and how are they able to make this grant?

 

Sounds to me like less in taxes needs to collected.

 

Sounds like bureaucrats gone wild ... Ooooo ... we have money to pass out ...

OMFG! The nagging feeling that somewhere, someone is having sex... And possibly enjoying it - is just too much for the white-bread puritanical hordes of Plano? Is that the popular thinking? Disgusting!

Moral fiber? Do you get that in a box of Holy Flakes?

The DO's endorsement by ridicule of the ruling shows that it is lacking in moral fiber as well.

Actually, in committee the slogan was changed to "Do It Missionary Style Strictly in the Bedroom and in the Dark for Procreative Purposes Only and Definitely Don't Enjoy It If You're Female," but it would have increased printing costs and thus was scrapped.

I'll tolerate recycling as long as you do it behind closed doors where I don't have to see it.

 @Myrna.Minkoff-Katz Where are you getting that?  I can find 2 studies (or two articles about one study) from the end of June that claim Dallas is the #1 fast food consumer in the country and one that dubiously shows Austin as consuming the most fast food but ranking as the 5th healthiest city.

You moron, that's not how you're supposed to do it. You're supposed cut a slit in a bedsheet. Then place said sheet over the female wife (this is important too) with the slit over the female's baby making parts. The male husband climbs on top of the female and inserts his member into his female wife and deposits his seed appropriately. The process should take no more than 5 minutes from start to completion.

 @NaiveWhiteLiberalProgressive I do it all the time. In the kitchen, on the couch, in the bedroom, in the shower, especially in public. I'm talking about recycling that is.

 @NaiveWhiteLiberalProgressive Why are conservatives so sensitive about something everyone does every day in every room of the house, and have been for thousands of years? The most commonly performed act in human history is treated like an open secret. Baffling.

 @mewkins Damn, I never read the instruction manual...  To think of the HOURS I have wasted in foreplay and extended lovemaking over the years, when I could have been doing more productive/entertaining things.

 

Then again, I have been married to the same woman for almost thirty five years...

Because Eric Nicholson made it one and because it fits in with the larger pattern of "progressives" denigrating anything that has to do with traditional Western Culture, morality, and decorum.

 @Lakewooder People masturbate every day.  Let's put masturbation jokes on billboards and electric bills.  I have an old "Truly Tasteless Jokes" book that they can use for some more zany advertising ideas.

 @DontBeDisingenuous I think you mean fucked up xtian culture, morality, and decorum. And for good measure, santorum, which though not strictly masturbatory, is related to the sexual practices of butt-fucking sexual degenerates everywhere.

 @DontBeDisingenuous 

Actually, Don't, you deserve a longer reply. Here it is:

Have you so abused your brain, so starved your imagination, so tuned out the real world, so surrendered your soul to partisan politics that you can deal with things only by squeezing them into some liberal-conservative framework?

Get outdoors. Take up a sport (playing, not just watching). Drink a beer (not a lite). Talk to real people. Check back with us in a couple of months.

Dear Mr. Shit Joke Here,

 

Daniel here. I concur that sex is just as unappetizing and disgusting as fecal matter. Of course, in France, they shit on Main Street. But here in the free enterprise world, we hold it in, hold it in, hold it in until we're fixing to burst. Some would say our rigidity is its own reward, but we also enjoy the consolation of pointing a damning finger at that lowly trollop who went ahead and done shat like it was nothing. This is a nation founded on Christian principles! As for me, sir, you can count on me to hold it in until I'm psychically disfigured.

 

Your new fan,

Daniel
