Waymon posted some ads for karate lessons yesterday, and a few people pointed out in the comments that you can't really tell the message without more text, so I added some. The other ad is after the jump.

LOL! Okay, a little messy with the typography, but I adore the messages. LOLOL

HAHAHA! Good job Alex!

Turn it into a real martial arts ad for an system or organization that is known for teaching queers to protect themselves.

This is great work, Alex, with great visuals and messaging. I especially like the way the first one is set up to look like one of those Psalm-cards/prayer cards that are so common in Bible country.

The second one's really well done, too in terms of the spacing of the pink letters.

And hilarious words, of course!

Thought about marketing them?

Thanks for turning this around...

I feel better already, thanks Alex, these made my day!

I'd like to see yet another message over the picture with the little boy in high heels:

"No, he didn't ask ..."

"... Yes, it's still too soon to tell."

Yes, indeed, Alex --- well done!

Too bad Conan is off the air for a few more months, these have the type of off-balance humor he loves to use in his after-the-monologue skits.

Alex, I enjoy your perspective.

I loved these, Alex. :) I made sure to put it on my FB page and the Bilerico Project fan page too!
