Hanging-man billboard spooks Vegas commuters this morning
There’s scant information about who pulled this stunt – a mannequin in a noose hanging from a billboard saying “Dying For Work” – during early morning rush hour in Las Vegas earlier today. It is, though, one hell of a picture.
911 was hit around 6:30am after calls started coming in describing what looked like a dead body hanging from a billboard. It turned out to be a mannequin in a suit, yet this still spooked motorists. The AP reports:
The graphic display along the interstate was one of at least two unauthorized signs spotted Wednesday morning in the Las Vegas area. Another found on Highland Avenue and Desert Inn Road was white with black lettering that read, “Hope You’re Happy Wall St.,” and a similar mannequin hanging off the edge.
Nobody has taken ownership yet, but the Occupy Las Vegas website claims that Nevada lawmakers have slashed social aid programs including much of the aid allocated for suicidal adults.
