Love this piece by artist Roger Borg, based on the NYC MTA's horribly worded slogan. Seriously, the grammar and syntax in this thing drive me crazy every time I see a city bus or poster. I know the MTA are trying to be "catchy" but -- argh! So many pronouns without antecedents. If you (who?) see something (what, specifically? a suspicious person? or a cute dog?), say something (to whom? and what to say? something about the first something? or about something else entirely?).
Ugh, what a debacle. I am glad that Roger here made some art about this mess of an attempt at communication.
