NSFW: Local Billboard Asks Congress if They Have "Testicle Fortitude" to Impeach Obama, Complete With Image of Huge Ballsack

An inflammatory billboard down at Pearl and State asks congress if they have the "testicle fortitude" to impeach Obama.

Opting for absolute clarity over subtlety, sign owner Nancy Sysack commissioned the image of a grotesque dangling ballsack on the billboard's right panel to accompany the question. On the left, a highly suspect silhouette caricature of President Obama is sandwiched between the text: "Enough with the lying. You're out of control."

Sysack told News Channel 5 that "sometimes you gotta put things out there in order to make a point and get people to turn their heads." 

Heads are certainly turning, and the majority of passersby in Old Brooklyn seemed of the opinion that the sign was inappropriate; you know, that the dangling scrotum thing probably took it too far. 

Even an artist working for Sysack's company said that she doesn't always agree with her boss's ideas, like the time she had to paint Martin Luther King Jr. hugging Osama Bin Laden on the occasion of MLK Day. That sign, according to the employee, was promptly burned.

Meantime, Sysack remains grateful for her first amendment rights. Though some would argue she has drifted definitively into the "I know it when I see it" obscenity territory.
