So UPMC (King Kong from here on out) issued a statement about being told they can’t put their logo on top of the USS Tower. That statement included this line:
“We believe that this sign is important to both UPMC and the city as tangible evidence of Pittsburgh’s transformation into an international center of medicine, technology and education.”
I’m not sure, but I think King Kong is insulting our intelligence.
Because how much do you believe that somewhere in the world this conversation will ever ever happen:
Man 1: Pittsburgh sucks. It is a city full of smog, smoke, spandex, and AquaNet … with french fries on top.
Man 2: Dude, Pittsburgh is an international center of medicine, technology and education … with french fries on top.
Man 1: The hell?
Man 2: Seriously! Didn’t you see the giant ass logo on the US Steel Tower? That’s proof right there … with french fries on top.
Oh man. The logic.
I don’t know how important it is to you that King Kong gets to put their sign up, but to me, it is about this —><— important. In fact, if I could make those arrows overlap, I would because it is NEGATIVE important to me.
Bite me, King Kong. Bite. Me.
