B.A.C.K.R.O.N.Y.M.S. by Poisøn Lake, Juxtapolemic, H.P. Lovecraft

October 4th, 2009 12:18 AM

INSTRUCTIONS: People love to make up acronymical explanations for words that aren't acronyms; for example, "cop" does not stand for Constable On Patrol.

This task asks you to make this creative mistake deliberately, to help the public understand what words truly mean. Find a word written somewhere out in the world, and publicly post what its letters stand for.

After assembling a long list of possible acronyms, we settled on two. H.P. assisted me ( PoisonLake ) with the sign making portion, mostly by roosting atop the poster board.

Armed with a cardboard squid we journeyed out into the near-frosty Portlandian eve. There happens to be some sort of roadblock worthy festival going on just up the street, so we posted our first sign just before the blocked off block, hoping it would be seen by a lot of people as they scour the streets for parking. The second sign went up a few blocks away.

The Portentous Squid was placed on 28th Ave, across the street from a string of restaurants & drunken folk.
Thereafter, our triumph of tasking was celebrated with peanut butter cups. Huzzah!


Update

As of October 6th in the year two thousand & nine, both signs are still present & readable.
