If Unreal and the rest of the Riverfront Times editorial staff represent the "brig" on the paper's metaphorical ship of state (we do, and we're damn proud to say so), what does that make the ad department?

OK, so he doesn't mention the paper by name. But yep, that there's our ad for the Bevo Mill, touting the south-side landmark's summer hours, outdoor happy hour and...Strolling Menstrals.
You know you've hit rough sailing when you can't even spell your typos right.
