Retarded Bill Boards

As I was hanging out in the park smoking crack* and listening to sports-talk radio, I often watch the people. 

There's mad-black-rapper-guy walking to work, old people feeding the ducks complaining about people smoking crack in the park and Mexicans working out in blue jeans. Then there's the Adult Daycare bus that unloads a gaggle of mentally disabled people. 

I wouldn't dare make fun of the "specials." I connect with the mentally dissed. When they're all running around it takes me back to recess in grade school. It's sort of nostalgic. Besides, at the end of the day, I too love chasing ducks. 

As I just chilled and dreaded the end of my lunch break, I noticed a reoccurring theme. More than a stereo-type, but an undeniable truth I could see with my very own eyes. The mentally disabled are unknowing pawns in the advertising game. 

One guy had on a Kool cigarette t-shirt, another was wearing Miller Lite pajama bottoms. Corona hats, Guiness Flip-flops and all kinds of swag that promo chicks give you at bars. How did these people get their hands on this stuff? I realize you can get some of these clothes at stores, but I would think the handlers/parents of these special folks wouldn't buy them promo sin swag. The park was full of retarded Duff Men.

I want to open an Ad Agency that pays the retarded part of our population to be walking billboards. When you pay folks the word "exploited" changes to "employed." Everyone takes notice when a special person enters the room. I think it would be a roaring success.

Or maybe they just like to party. If they asked me to go with them on their bus and do some mid-day drink'in and duck chase'in I'd probably be down. A large group of retarded folks drunk would have to be a new level of crazy. 

That Black-Eye Pea song makes sense to me now. The party would literally be retarded.  

* I don't smoke crack. I lack the networking skills to make it happen.
