    There is a bar on Pecos that has posted a message on their marquee that is getting some bad attention. Yelpers are flooding Yelp with angry reviews.

    Would this message offend you?

    It's wicked poor taste for sure. However I'm not personally offended by a dumb sign.

    Pretty dumb really, they could have chosen anybody that could not defend themselves, so whats the significance of using sick kids from St. Judes? That's just awful and in poor taste. Irritates me more than anything.

    The ******baggery that this place exudes is cosmic. "let's be edgy!" "We will shock people with our humor and bad-boy attitude!"

    Jokes about kids who are terminally ill? Unless you are Dave Chappelle beating the kid at video games, it's best to shy away.:nono:

    Seriously this is the kind of place I would like to go into and flush a half dozen cherry bombs down the toilet. ( I never would, but it would be funny)

    Umm...

    It says "Beauty is in the eye of the beer holder" and then "We support gay chicken fingers".

    What am I missing?

    Oh, I just saw the Broncos thing. Offensive, yes. I've seen worse. They could have said "Little Sisters Of The Poor". Meh, tempest in a tea pot.

    It would have helped if you shared the sign:

    "Broncos couldn't beat the sick kids at St Jude's"

    Distasteful?
    Bad Judgement?
    Sad?

    Yes to all...

    Sadly there are way worse things going on in life right now. But, these little blips are what we seem to focus on.

    Not that offensive really (unless you are a Broncos fan). I think if I was a football fan/sick kid I would laugh.

    When I first saw the comment, my first thought was.

    "Yep, the Broncos Suck"


    Wouldn't it cheer up the kids at St. Judes if the broncos went there and the kids won?


    Maybe a kid at St Judes saw this and thought

    "Haha, yea they do suck, I could score on them"


    Can someone please explain to me the harm done to the kids at St. Judes? Are they making fun of the kids at St Judes in some way that I'm missing?


    To be fair, I wouldn't have put up the sign. Not because I thought it was harmful to the kids, but because like this thread I think it would push more people away than push people into the store. Apparently it also means cherry bombs in my toilets. :)

    Just a guess, but I'd wager everyone who read this thread has thought about St Judes more today than they had in the entire past month. That is not a bad thing.

    Very poor taste and very poor judgment. Yes, I find the sign offensive and am not easily offended.

    Ditto. I am about as far from the PC crowd as possible, but this sign is ridiculously despicable.

    Doesn't offend me at all, got a little chuckle out of it. I could see how it would offend some though and I wouldn't put the sign up on my business.

    I wouldn't put it up if I owned a bar...however I wasn't offended.

    I could totally see myself, if I were a patient in a hospital, yelling out "these dopes can't even beat us sick dudes in this hospital ward!"

    So yeah, not really offensive to me.

    I'm not really offended by the signs but I also don't see any humor in them either. I especially don't even get the chicken fingers one. Either way, they make me completely unlikely to want to go there.

    "Beauty is in the eye of the beer holder"
    "We support gay chicken fingers"
    "Broncos couldn't beat the sick kids at St Jude's"

    I did have a laugh about the first one.
    I don't really get the second one.
    The third one, I think is just lame.

    holy crapola!

    what does that say about all the players on the teams that the Broncos did beat?


    offended? no. got far more important things to be offended by :D

    I think the sick kids at St Judes have a few other things to worry about.


    its just a bit of fun at the broncos expense. Anyone seriously offended by this sign (which does not poke fun at St Judes) is clearly living in la la land. Go find something locally that's offensive and do something about it. This sign hurts nobody.

    Nah, I don't really like it.

    I'm not up in arms about it either. It's just distasteful.
