Fly on the Wall 

Wal to wal

Happy new year to me: Walgreens' weird signmaker is back on the job and better than ever.

Last summer, your Pesky Fly noticed that someone with an unorthodox approach to marketing was creating signs for the Walgreens at Union Avenue and Pauline Street. "Smell like you've been surfing" topped a center aisle display for body wash, while a sign reading, "Does your baby have any balls?" marked the entrance to the toy department.

Sadly, these excellent advertisements vanished shortly after being mentioned in this column. Now the fun signs are back, but they've moved to the Union Avenue Walgreens in Midtown. Here are some examples:

And while you're at it, put a severed horse head in the sink next to last night's dishes and drill a few hundred bullets into the corner with all the dust bunnies.

Because if all the rowdy ones are dropping in, you'll want to replace the real knives with plastic ones.

Thank goodness.
