Maybe I'll just go straight to 30-second TV spots

Hey look! All these local blogs have banner ads on SF Appeal!

There's the N Judah Chronicles!

And there's FuncheapSF! Isn't this fun!

(Insert needle-scratching-across-record-sound here)

Wait, what? Sexpigeon has taken to advertising?

In case you don't know, go ahead and click. Sexpigeon is more or less a photo blog that consists of cell-phone pictures (at least, I hope they're cell-phone pictures) taken mostly around the Bay Area and captioned with brief and witty text. It's often funny and mostly great and the guy who does it has a keen wit and a way with words that I sometimes envy.

But I don't know. He doesn't seem like the sort that would advertise. As far as I know, there's no ads on his own site, which means that he doesn't make any money if someone clicks through (or is there something I'm missing here?), so I guess I don't get it. Of course, of course, everything isn't always about money and maybe he just wants more readers and whatever. Fine.

Maybe I should do a banner ad! Something like:

Yeah? Yeah? You like it?

Or maybe:

(P.S. This one's for Jessica, who specifically requested more MS Paint art on the blog.)

(P.P.S. I accidentally erased part of the box on the right side using the little square eraser in MS Paint. So whoops.)

(UPDATE Thu 9/10 - Well, my dream has come true, I think. For reasons inscrutable to me, the good folks at SF Citizen took my dream and ran with it. Behold, my banners ads now festoon that site, gratis. In fact, I didn't know it was going to happen. Thanks, I think!)

I approve! If you could make it an animated gif that flashes back and forth between the two banners, it'd be perfect.
