They are reproduction pin-up signs. It's not the art that is in question--it's what the signs SAY that is objectionable. Read them and decide for yourself.

Does the OP object to Cosmo covers, too? Cosmopolitan Cover Gallery - Cosmo's Past Cover Girls

This one shows a babe with a lot of cleavage and an article entitled "Innocent Mistakes that Blow a Job Interview".

If so she should stay away from magazine display racks.

This sign is a Long way from bullying and it is not racist. Let's not try to make this comparison.

How much time have you spent with todays teenagers. My grandson/granddaughter would laugh at something like this. They see and hear much worse at school, social activities, etc.

Go ahead and start your petition. Based on the comments so far, you'll not have many takers.

I'm so old, I don't get it. Are they supposed to be sexually inappropriate to or just to old fashioned?

Yeah, what if some teenagers turn off their music (Sinatra perhaps?), stop texting, get off the computer and wander into the Fish Hawk center? They will probably turn into stark raving sex maniacs.

i agree with the OP i worked in a factory for 30 years and what we were able to do and say back in the 70's and 80's all changed ......the pictures themselves seem ok but the wording does have a sexual meaning....I wouldnt want my granddaughter who is 10 asking me.....Papa what does that mean....i would expect to see pics like this in a redneck gas station

My kids AND grandkids are used to honest and direct answers from me. We saw our two grandchildren every day of their lives until they left for college.

But I am a grandmother, not a papa. Sweetie wouldn't tell them where babies come from any sooner than he would fly. He may not KNOW.

IF MY ten year old would ask...what does that mean. I would say, When you are fly fishing you have to watch and keep your arm up and your rod up so your hook doesn't catch something or somebody.

And on the other one... I would say that in certain areas of the world bush is the heavy dense thick vegetation areas.


The plaques are funny because they has two meanings.

If they were older I would explain...the other meaning.

I can think of so many worse things I don't want them to see.
