Awesome graphic-design skills on display on the T

Jenny Frazier photographs what has to be the worst medical ad ever on the T - it features a purple-and-orange dollar sign covered in sperm (making it look more like an angry creature from a bad sci-fi movie):
... It's not that I'm grossed out, it's like when you see a spider and suddenly you feel like it's on you or something ...
Like the job UHub is doing? Consider a contribution. Thanks!
That's just not right, even in the least. Yuck.
(And this is the same T that refused to accept ads from marijuana legalization advocates, citing the right to protect riders from offensive messages. Ye Gods.)
Usually art like that says "HEAVEN OR HELL: your choice to be SAVED or DAMNED!", and is handed to you by that guy with the sandwich board.
Substantial penalty for early withdrawal?
They should place that next to a soap ad.
The More You Read, The Better It Gets
I just noticed the small (well, smaller) print.
"$1,100 (per month)"
(no pun intended)
How many cups do you have to fill? A month? Sounds like it might actually be strenuous work. $1,100 a month might not even cover my expenses for porno and hand cream, some months.
And then, this...
"Applicants must be 18 - 38 years of age"
What? That's blatant age discrimination! I'm not complaining so much for my 50-year-old self, but why deny such a glorious opportunity for our youth to enrich themselves? Hell, when I was 14, I could have done a month's work in about 5 days.
Sounds like a Farmer's Daughter / Travelling Salesman Joke
with the punch line: "You like that eh? Well, it doesn't stop 'til it gets 4 gallons"
Looks like they are preferentially selecting for color-blind donors.
They've become desperate.
Back in 2006, the bounty was only $900. Then again, the real problem is these outfits typically only want the genetic material of smart, rich, motivated Ivy League types, who aren't usually the kind who'd need money so badly that they'd answer a T ad for, er, "donation."
