A controversial billboard in the River North neighborhood has been taken down.

The board, at Clark and Ontario, advertised a Canadian web site that arranged no-commitment sexual hookups.

In big letters, the billboard read, “Because the best job is a b***w job.”

Parents complained their children were exposed to the board while visiting at the Rainforest Cafe and the Rock ‘n Roll McDonald’s.

Alderman Brendan Reilly asked the billboard company to take it down in the interest of being a good neighbor.

So the board is gone, and the advertiser will be compensated for having it removed early.

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.
