I don’t get it.

Obviously I don’t understand deep thoughts, because I read this quote over and over from the new artwork that will appear on the PAT buses and I still don’t get it.


Maybe I’m too literal but that makes zero sense to me.

Now I’ve got to go and catch my bus, because I am an enthusiast and I want to feel the beat of life in my life.

The hell?

See ya tomorrow.

UPDATE: So according to the website, the designer of this art is a female and her name is Jessica Greenfield. She entitled it “Imaginary Discourse” and says this about its meaning:

This is one of a series of drawings exploring things that remain unsaid between passengers on the bus. When I ride Pittsburgh buses, I am always imagining what people might be thinking and inventing possible monologues. They range from the mundane to the fanciful.

So, you know, that clears up nothing.

    This makes zero sense to you because it makes zero sense period. It makes no sense because it is being given to us by the same PAT that gave us the existing buses with their ridiculous artwork.

    Imagine it – you’re a visitor to Pittsburgh, and you want to take a bus (OK, suspend your sense of reality for a second). You feel one of those gold or teal or blue or red things with funny words on it thunder up to you. And your thought is one of panic, because you’re not sure if it’s a city bus or some charter bus or a tourist bus (OK, suspend your sense of reality again) or what.

    Our buses have no sense of identity and now we’re trying to give them a bad one!

    I have no idea what that means. I’m still trying to figure out what the buses with the languages I can’t read are saying to me.

    Apparently the “enthusiast who wants to feel the beat of life in his own life” also has some kind of horrible skin disease. If you believe the drawing, anyway.

    It sounds like Engrish.

    I’d like to see someone try to diagram that sentance.

    I bet if we asked the artist to explain it, he’d be at a loss.

    I’m so glad I’m not the only one that doesn’t get it.

    Oh the people that write ads for the bus are high, high, high…
