So full of irony
Hmmmm. Or should that be: Himmmm. Who would have thought that this 1927 billboard in Los Angeles California could so fully explain and express the real motivation on why single men would frequent the YMCA so succinctly? Of course their were the above board reasons why a man would want to go to the YMCA to meet another man - for the fellowship, of course. And then there is the reason for a man needing to meet another man for a different type of fellowship. The type where one strapping man would need the firm grip of another man to help through life's hard spots. The YMCA must have been on heck of an impressive erection to hold so many meanings for so many.
