I think it's funny! It's not like they are "endorsing" or condoning what happened in Guyana. Besides,the phrase "drink the Kool-Aid" has already been a part of our lexicon for a long time now. The people that are upset about this need to get a sense of humor.

I think they might have been hoping for the uproar. They're getting a ton of free publicity with the uproar, after all... maybe that was the intent?

I'm not offended, I think it's funny.

I think it's hilarious.  I guess depending on what area it's posted in, people may take more offense to it than in other areas.  They were probably banking on negative publicity using this type of riske humor.

I don't find it offensive so much as I find it not particularly clever or funny.

This sign is offensive? This is what is wrong with our society, we will pick what is "offensive" and fight a battle against it! I have seen many different signs which are much more offensive than this one... Besides, like everyone has stated, it is very clever....

Some would argue that making light of violence and personal tragedy is a symptom of what's wrong with our society. Some people enjoy the "Saw" movies and some people make a point not to let those people babysit their small children.

Anyway, back on track, I personally use the phrase "drank the kool aid" in internet conversation, but I just didn't find the billboard particularly funny.

So you don't find it funny.  Do you find it offensive?

    • The round I played yesterday was the first time when both my SG:D and SG:A were better than the 10 handicap level.  That's pretty good, especially since I know what I need to work on in terms of long game (and that has been improving a bit, too). 
    • Day 70 (6/13/21) - My wife filmed me taking swings with an 8-iron and Driver (w/o a ball) in the backyard. Positions seemed pretty good in the backswing, but in the downswing, I noticed that I have a tendency to let the club open up as I started down, thus requiring a correction at impact. Based on this information, I did several more swings focusing on keeping the clubface square to my line throughout the swing. Will work on ingraining this feeling again tomorrow. 
    • Every other weekend I play a modified version of match play with a friend of mine.  We play all 18.  Today I lost 8 to 6.  However...we also keep a cart score:  the winning/tying score, each hole, being the cart score for that hole.   Our previous low cart score had been +4.  This morning we managed a +3.  
    • Whoever chose this course (me) should be punished. And @georgep too. Apologies.
    • I recorded my swing in face on and down the line and have uploaded it here. Please critique and provide feedback. Appreciate your time on this! Thanks! 11 HCP. 8 Iron. Looking to optimize swing and learn to score in Golf.
