Chris at Wyblog has some fun with a solid idea.
Your child’s yellow school bus will soon be a rolling billboard. NJ Governor Chris Christie has signed into law a measure granting cash-strapped school districts the right to sell advertising on their buses.
Half of all revenue generated will be used by to offset transportation costs, while the other 50 percent will go to services chosen by the Board of Education.
Districts will have the ability to sell advertising space on the exterior sides of school buses owned or leased by the district. All advertisements will be approved by the local Board of Education, and tobacco, alcohol and political advocacy ads are prohibited.
Really, what could go wrong?
Tobacco and alcohol are off limits, but what about Coke vs Pepsi? Viagra vs Cialis? (Nah, the moment probably isn’t right.) Chevy Volt? Or BMW?
I don’t suppose too many local school boards would be eager to approve an ad for Huntington Learning Centers! But that still leaves the door open for lots of possibilities.
The wheels on the bus go round and round thanks to Michelin because so much is riding on those tires!

Hmmm. Maybe they’d better run that one by Michelle Obama first.
