Racy Chicago billboard promises ‘non-traditional’ hookups

A Toronto-based web site is raising eyebrows and revenues, with a racy new billboard at Clark and Ontario.

The site is ArrangementFinders.com.

With the words ”The best job is a b***w job” and an image of retired porn star Bree Olson, it promises to help people find not-so-traditional relationships.

Web site officials say they chose Chicago for the clever play on words because of the city’s high unemployment rate.

Just a few feet from the billboard, parents take their children to the Rainforest Café and the Rock ‘n Roll McDonald’s.

While some folks have complained about the billboard’s bawdiness, the website doubled its Chicago subscriber base on the very first day the billboard went up.

      While I could care less what white trash and mongrels do in the wood pile,
      this is ominous that Amerika incl. Canada is completely secular and communized. You
      can thank both Progressive parties. Amerika is a toilet not worth dying for. I’m seceding.

    Let us focus on the last paragraph of this story. The tone of that statement is that "proof" of the billboard's "value" lies in the "successful" results garnered through it. We ought to be heavily grieved to see a "professional" journalist who is so detached from moral considerations that he holds higher regard for the persons commercializing copulative human activity than he holds for those who think such activity is to be kept private. And the "clincher" is that you, the journalist, judged this billboard "appropriate" because it generated a profit and not by anything related to its content and intent.

      Nowhere in this small 'article' does anyone voice their opinion on whether or not the billboard is appropriate or not. It neutrally states that even though the billboard is located near businesses with a high volume of children, it still served its purpose as the webpage who created it gained notoriety and profit. Open your eyes or save your worrying for Texas.

        Worrying for Texas?? Chicago has some of the worst gun crime rates in the nation, AND THEY HAVE SOME OF THE STRICTEST GUN LAWS. Lets worry about that sad ass city!!

        Chicago, the most corrupt, vile, violent and repugnant city in the nation. This billboard should be right at home there, and is. No surprise.

        RDF90210 I am guessing is a packers fan or guessing by the tag a Raiders fan. Either I think that you people would be cheering because I can imagine the rage if Rahm made them take this billboard down. It would be "GOV won't let us have BJs!!!"

      Agree 100%. When I was a freshman in college I made the mistake of remarking to my Dad that so and so must be right because he made a lot of money. Forget what the issue was but remeber his reation. Almost took my head off for such a stoopid (intentional spelling) comment equating being right with making money.

      It's appropriate because we live in a free country where you don't get to dictate your "morality" on the rest of us.

      As long as the billboard doesn't promote Christianity, family values or American values or tradition then profit is a good thing and whether or not it is appropriate for children to be exposed to is a decision best left up to rim job Rahm, of Man's Country, to decide.

      Madsen published an article in his Wayne Madsen Report in May 2010 claiming Obama and Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel were members of the same bathhouse in Chicago.

      Newsflash Lewis…Billboards are advertisements for businesses that have a goal of making money. You want to take the moral high ground, do so on your own dime. The beauty of this great nation lies in the fact that you have every right to put up a billboard next to this one and proudly proclaim your disdain. As for your comments about the journalist, you seem to forget that the journalist's job is to report the facts. Nowhere in the story does the journalist proclaim anything to be appropriate. This is your interpretation, silly rabbit.

      It's not the "job" of the "journalist" to "opine", but rather to "report" the news. It's not his "job" to tell us what he "thinks". Don't we "gripe" enough about that "already"? (And dude, what's up with the "quotes"?)

      Allen said:

      Well said, Lewis. We have lost a clear sense of what is truly moral or immoral. It has been said that if God does not judge America, he will need to apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah.

      The actual billboard has part of the word purposely blurred.

      StopWhiningAlready said:
      February 15, 2013 at 8:49 AM

      I think the actual billboard itself is blurred. Adult readers know what the blurred word is, but kids under the age of 10 (well, it is Chicago, so maybe 8) wouldn't put 2+2 together. And as for the model/retired "actress", she's not really showing anything that cant be seen on your typical beer commercial.

    But they really chose it because it is filled with godless, soulless leftists. Did Rev. Wright and Bill Ayers sign up?

    We don't care.

    Whatever you do, feel, say or think is just fine in Chicago. You're a loss anyway. You have no redeeming value to the rest of the country and no one even gives a damn what happens to you. Rob, rape, kill and eat each other in Chicago…. whatever you do, just keep the noise and bloodshed limited to your own filthy limits so as to not bother others. Perhaps the real estate that Chicago sits on will once again become valuable once all the human vermin in it finally cannibalizes and cleanses itself.

    Nobel Peace Prize Nominee: Obama Asks Military Leaders If They Will “Fire On US Citizens”

    Paul Joseph Watson
    Infowars
    January 22, 2013

    2009 Nobel Peace Prize nominee Jim Garrow shockingly claims he was told by a top military veteran that the Obama administration’s “litmus test” for new military leaders is whether or not they will obey an order to fire on U.S. citizens.

    Garrow was nominated three years ago for the prestigious Nobel Peace Prize and is the founder of The Pink Pagoda Girls, an organization dedicated to rescuing baby girls from “gendercide” in China. Garrow has been personally involved in “helping rescue more than 36,000 Chinese baby girls from death.” He is a public figure, not an anonymous voice on the Internet, which makes his claim all the more disturbing.

    “I have just been informed by a former senior military leader that Obama is using a new “litmus test” in determining who will stay and who must go in his military leaders. Get ready to explode folks. “The new litmus test of leadership in the military is if they will fire on US citizens or not”. Those who will not are being removed,” Garrow wrote on his Facebook page, later following up the post by adding the man who told him is, “one of America’s foremost military heroes,” whose goal in divulging the information was to “sound the alarm.”

    I live in Chicago. This is not in keeping with "community standards." Even if we can't agree about what those ought to be, I'm pretty sure that we have no way of enforcing it. I agree that if the phrase "traditional marriage" had been used to promote something, it would be removed because of the protests. We should all protest against this kind of ad.

    Mutually beneficial: prostitution. As a libertarian, I think prostitution should be legalized. Would I use a prostitute, no… I prefer the hunt and seduction and besides, you lie down with dogs you get up with fleas. But apart from that, lots of folks don't have time or energy or inclination to pursue sexual gratification as a hobby, sport, or biological impulse so I say let 'em pay for it. Besides, everybody's gotta make a living.
