    Bush miss me yet billboard

    It’s a billboard on I-35 in Wyoming.  To date, nobody seems to be taking ownership of the billboard, but Bob Collins of NPR has confirmed it is real, having seen it personally:

    It was late at night and I wasn’t sure I’d seen the billboard correctly as I whizzed past it on I-35 in Wyoming last week on the way back from Wrenshall. But an e-mailer confirms I saw what I thought I saw.

    It’s beginning to sweep along the Internet, accompanied by various claims that it’s a Photoshop fake. But it’s not. It’s real.

    There’s no billboard ownership plate on this particular billboard, making tracing the person who had the cash to post it difficult to find. It’s time to crowdsource this puppy.

    If any readers find out who put the billboard up, please send us a note.

    UPDATE: The renters of the billboard have come forward — sort of:

    Bev Master, office manager with Schubert & Hoey Outdoor Advertising, said the billboard — which the firm owns — was rented out by a “group of small business owners and individuals who just felt like Washington was against them.”

    “They thought it was a funny way to get out their message,” she added.

    However, Master told FoxNews.com the ad buyers wish to “remain anonymous.”
