A companion piece to yesterday's "White Ho" below, I guess, on the nature of irony.

There's an on-going debate as to whether this poster, photographed on the MARC commuter train (between Baltimore and DC), is legit or a piece of ironic guerilla art... which itself says something about the times we live in.

I had been betting on guerilla art, but after further research and discovering the British "Secure Beneath the Watchful Eyes" campaign, which looks like it came directly from the "V for Vendetta" alt universe, I'm not so sure anymore...

... which itself says something about the times we live in.
