This morning as I was walking down Lexington Avenue I saw the strangest ad on top of a taxi. It said, in white lettering against a solid black background:


No other text of any kind, or identification of who place the ad.

I am still pondering the meaning of this. Even odder is that "knackered" is British English slang (It means "exhausted" or "pooped"); your average American-on-the-street is not going to have any idea what it means.

Then again, I am still trying to sort out the deeper meaning of the ad, even knowing the meaning of the word. Why would someone place such an ad (using that word) in New York? What the hell does it mean?

Knackered? Until I'm knackered?

As I start the afternoon, I sit at my desk resolved to fight the good fight. I think.
