We’re just weeks away from the November 2 elections, and things have reached a fever pitch here in the Valley. Signs are posted on every street corner endorsing propositions and candidates, and people up for election are debating the issues and slamming each other at town halls and in the media. And I think people are just about ready for the whole thing to be over.

To lighten things up a little, I would like to point out some people that have taken advantage of the elections and poked some fun at them while promoting themselves.

You might have noticed that among those signs on the corner are some for Stingray Sushi that are similar in look and feel to campaign paraphernalia. Awesome! Of course, people might be ignoring all campaign signage by now, but if they look closely they’ll notice Stingray’s play on the elections. And it’ll stick in their minds (it did for me!).

Another election-related spoof is one I remember from the 2008 presidential election. Season two of Snoop Dogg’s show, “Father Hood,” was set to premiere in late November and he, brilliantly, ran a TV smear campaign on cats. Because he’s a Dogg. Get it??

I like the fact that people put twists on election season and ease the tension (and annoyance factor) of the campaigning. What do you think? Do you like it too, or do you think it adds to the clutter?

    Dave Pratt has been regularly slamming election signs in his blog on http://www.azcentral.com for some time. He even had “the most offensive intersections” called out. What makes me mad is how long the signs stay up after the election.
