Damn!  Nice work Walt.

EDIT: I didn't even catch the KY plate on the bus on my first glance.!

Me neither!  And I just got "...shall not bear false witness"  Or does that just work beautifally on its own?

So someone had me home in on the plate. I get the Kentucky thing, is there a hidden message in the plate number or am I just overthinking it?

I originally read that last line as "Thou Shalt Not Cover." That explains why we didn't cover last week.

Another classic Walt!

LOL, I did the same thing.  I didn't reread it until after I read your post.

High level trolling there, Walt, with the KY plate. That's gonna leave a mark!

It's pretty hard to miss.  There's two back to back if I'm not mistaken.

I'm rarely on 71 but I'm sure I'd see it at some point.

There used to be copies on a farm along I-70 from Dayton to Columbus too. 

HS
Buckeye BadDog's picture

I am from Columbus but played at school in KY (Richmond - EKU) so I made the trek up I-71 a lot and saw those signs, and the crosses, and the Confederate Flag. One thing I remember with a smile is how mad folks from Cincinnati got if you asked them why their airport was in KY, or asked them what part of Cincinnati they lived in, "the Ohio part or the KY part?"  So with the fact that the Fighting Fickells will be busing it here, the "Covet" sign, the KY plates, and the Nati reference, this is really next level stuff Walt is dishing out here. Just kinda surprised he didn't spell it "Barecats" too.

When I went to Eastern and people asked why Cincinnati’s airport was in Kentucky I’d quickly reply it’s because no one wants to fly into this shit state so they had to add Cincinnati to get people to use it. 

HS
brutus0717's picture

I'm from Cincy, never been mad about someone asking that. Actually, I don't think I've ever been asked that. But the answer is because it was the only place that had enough flat land to build a large airport.

Kentucky license plate is a nice touch

Crumb's picture

The Kentucky plates stings a bit, but mainly because I'm a Buckeye that has to remind my fellow Cincinnatians that it is Cincinnati, OHIO. Cincinnati is Buckeye territory in every sense of the phrase! Go Bucks! No pity for the kitty!

Smitty516's picture

Yes, and I’ve actually wondered several times this offseason (coming home from the Reds games and seeing the Hell is Real sign) how the one this year could top what he did in 2014. Well, this one is even more of a subtle yet stronger butch slap than the previous Cincy game poster. Well done Walt!

HS

I was hoping it would somehow tie in to the poster from 2014 and this does not disappoint.

Any significance to the numbers in the license plate? 

HS
tajikey's picture

Living in CA, I assumed the "947" was reference to an area code in Kentucky, however, and by sheer coincidence (?), it's an area code in TSUN. The only reference to "TNY" I could find is for a clothing brand out of Brazil called "The Not Yet," which would fit, but not sure that's what Walt was going for.

Regardless, the poster is striking and gorgeous.

HS
bigtenspeed's picture

Thanks for confirming! That was going to drive me crazy wondering if I missed something else.

Love the poster and have shared with UC friends.

HS
Chic'sGhost's picture

Thou shall not covet covers everything.  UC wants to be OSU in the worsts way, and knows they never will.  Thus, hanging onto basketball games played with short shorts that happened 57 years ago as their claim to fame as to why they are superior. 

Most of the players from that game are dead, let alone the UC fans that saw that game.  Sad. 

Barney Fife lives, and he lives among us.

As someone who grew up in Cincinnati, I approve.  

HS
ohiopanda's picture

Being from Cincinnati originally, the damn KY plate hurts. That brainwashed state is of a different breed that I'd rather not be associated with, and there's just as many OSU fans and players as there are UC derilicts in Cincinnati. I despise UC fans, but Kentucky (aka SEC football and UK basketball) fans are unbearable.

HS
dubjayfootball90's picture

Every body on Cincy team covets an OSU offer. Vast majrity did not receive one. Don't covet that offer, because it ain't coming, and now you get to be smacked by THE OSU. BOOM Baby!

You can feed a bobcat all the chili it wants. That don't mean it's going to crap out diamonds.

Hockey Buck's picture

Undergraduate degree from The Ohio State University and Masters from the University of Cincinnati. Live in Cincinnati, but make any a trek up and down 71 to visits family in Columbus, mom in Youngstown and of course Ohio State home games.  Like and support both schools teams, but no question to who is the best and most revered.  Go Bucks!  However, I am a fan and have to give credit to the Bearcats for scheduling us and allowing Ohio State to beat them during every National Championship season.  Here is to 2019!

Probably one of the easiest, but still solid posters Walt has ever done.

GrandTheftHarley's picture

Since I haven't had the pleasure of living south of the Ohio River in quite some time, I'll have to take your word for it.

Yet if you're suggesting that present-day Covington, Kentucky has somehow earned a certain cachet by swapping spit with Cincinnati, then all I can say is, you can't put lipstick on a pig.

Now that Cincinnati has an MLS team, fans of both FC Cincinnati and Columbus Crew have started calling their rivalry "HELL IS REAL". In honor of the other jesusy sign that you can see on I71 between Cbus and Cincy. Hoping hell is real on the field for UC Saturday. GO BUCKS.

My favorite is probably the 2014 Penn State poster (you know, the one trolling Penn St for suggesting they're our rival).  However, this one would be a close second.
