Deadwood Billboard

Recommended Posts

This morning I was driving into work and near LAX (LA airport) they have these huge obnoxious lighted LED billboards and I saw a lighted rendition of this poster emblazoned in the dawn’s early light.

I thought, as I past beneath the sign...

“Welcome the FOUR back?”

”Welcome the FOLD back?”

I was trying to remember names that began with “F” in the show...and then it hit me!

 

I laughed so hard my eyes were watering.:lol:

I tried watching Deadwood a few times, but their gratuitous use of the F-bomb kind of turned me off. 

 

And now they have have it on billboards.

Too bad. You missed one of the greatest western series ever filmed, imho.

Although I must admit that even I, mostly immune to rough profane men, was somewhat taken aback initially.

That poster would put the church ladies down here in a tizzy.

They were apoplectic when several counties in Ga approved Sunday alcohol sales.

Yes, the language is salty and to be honest, I cuss like a sailor sometimes and when I saw the show I was taken aback somewhat by the cussing. I highly doubt everyone in the old west pranced around with high morals and Victorian language practices. I have a feeling “Deadwood” is an exaggerated example of life in the late 1800’s. I do believe there was cussing, but maybe not to the extent they show in this series. I do not doubt though that guys like Sweringen cussed like Sweringen... then and now.

Howdy,

When I was in the Army back in the 60s there was a lot of

cussing as in 'Pass the ********* salt'.

I was not used to such but got along with it.

I thought the troops were cussing just because they could.

No one had hit their thumb, people weren't really angry, they just cussed.

Best

CR
