Storage Firm Shakes Up Pro-Lifers

Over the last year, I've written a couple of times about Manhattan Mini-Storage's billboard campaigns, which comment amusingly on a broad range of social and pop culture issues, ranging from the government's wiretapping to Paris Hilton and the Queer Eye guys. Their latest series, which started a few months ago, is beginning to cause a lot of upset among pro-lifers, as evidenced by this CBS news story. I think the new campaign is both clever and sobering. After all, what's thought to be the third most common usage for a hanger, after hanging clothes and retrieving locked car keys? The Catholic League is complaining and asking New Yorkers to boycott the company. Makes me wish I had something to store, just so I could patronize Manhattan Mini-Storage.
