Billboard Morality

There is a locally-based abstinence-only advocacy group that about a dozen billboards up around my city. My own views on the subject of under which circumstances sex is a good or bad idea are too nuanced to fit on a billboard, but I really didn't have much of a problem with their advertising campaign. The billboards featured black and white designs and pithy -- and only minorly snarky/holier-than-thou -- captions. Well, they've stepped things up. Yesterday I saw one of the new designs, which reads, "Girls: If it's not for sale, don't advertise." Anyone want to make a bet if there's a version encouraging boys to dress modestly?
