Minneapolis restaurant Chino Latino (612-824-7878) uses pseudo-Chinese characters as profanity alternatives in billboard ad. (Photo by Beijing Sounds)
If the restaurant wanted to advertise and not get fined by the FCC, why not put some effort into it & do it correctly:
"A 2-hour vacation from the 他媽的 weather"?
What is written on the billboard are repetition of "新仿宋文[体]", which means "new imitated Song typeface".
A better question would be:
"Why did Chino Latino chose its location to be at a 鬼不生蛋的地方?"
* Speaking of bad weather, I was in Quebec City last week & right before my return flight was scheduled to take off from Québec Jean Lesage International Airport (YQB), a Canadian medical plane crash landed after its front landing gear collapsed & slipped off from the runway.
Due to this fiasco, my flight was delayed for two hours, consequentially I missed my connection at Detroit & had to stay there over night. Detroit is a very depressing city. It looks like a nuclear bomb has gone off there.
