I’m too sexy for my signage?

Perhaps for one Reno club  
This is a lesson in how public opinion can turn into great publicity.  The Wild Orchid adult nightclub in Reno, Nevada, is getting a lot of attention lately, not because of what’s happening inside, but outside ... and about 30 feet above the ground, as an electronic “video” sign is causing some controversy.  
Bikini clad entertainers being displayed to the good citizens of the biggest little city in the world may be too hot to handle.  Or at least drive by.
“If you like strip clubs, you don’t have a problem,” Kamy Keshmiri, Wild Orchid owner, said of his new sign to the Reno Gazette-Journal. “If you don’t like strip clubs, then you have a major problem.”

Just ask Ozzy — public urination doesn’t lead to anything good
In 1982, while wearing his soon-to-be-wife Sharon’s dress (because she had hidden his clothes in hopes that it would keep him from going out), Ozzy Osbourne drunkenly urinated on a cenotaph erected in honor of those who died at the Alamo in Texas, across the street from the actual building.  A police officer arrested him, and poor Ozzy was subsequently banned from the city of San Antonio for a decade.  He had, after all, pissed on a piece of Texan (and American) heritage.
