We Need to Talk

Recently in a weekly update from, I was reminded of a wonderful billboard campaign -- the "We Need to Talk" series of sharp-witted comments ascribed to God.  The Snopes story was based specifically on such a billboard that survived Hurricane Charley back in 2004.
When Hurricane Charley slammed into Florida in mid-August 2004, battering the state with up to 100 mph winds that knocked over signs, uprooted trees, and left thousands of homes destroyed or uninhabitable, one billboard on Sand Lake Road in Orlando survived the onslaught relatively unscathed. The storm peeled off the most recent advertising message displayed on the board, however, revealing in its place an ad from an earlier campaign:

Luckily, the Snopes article listed the others in the billboard series --
"C'mon Over And Bring The Kids" — God

"What Part of 'Thou Shalt Not . . .' Didn't You Understand?" — God

"We Need To Talk" — God

"Keep Using My Name in Vain And I'll Make Rush Hour Longer" — God

"Loved The Wedding, Invite Me To The Marriage" — God

"That 'Love Thy Neighbor' Thing, I Meant It." — God

"I Love You . . . I Love You . . . I Love You . . ." — God

"Will The Road You're On Get You To My Place?" — God

"Follow Me." — God

"Big Bang Theory, You've Got To Be Kidding." — God

"My Way Is The Highway." — God

"Need Directions?" — God

"You Think It's Hot Here?" — God

"Tell The Kids I Love Them." — God

"Need a Marriage Counselor? I'm Available." — God

"Have You Read My #1 Best Seller? There Will Be A Test." — God 
Don't they make you smile? I'd love to see these return.  They're great!
