Rotoviral Marketing: Who Keeps Putting Up These 'Google Restonian' Signs?

scan0001.jpg

Several confidential operatives, including your Restonian himself, have spotted these shockingly Banksy-esque signs stapled to signposts around Reston in recent days. We'd like to say we're creative enough to have come up with this idea ourselves... but sadly, no. We're somewhat confused, actually. But as one of our confidential operatives pointed out, there is an upside:
At least your secret admirer had the aesthetic good taste to use a muted shade of lemon meringue-toned yellow that probably would pass muster with the DRB.
That's one less headache to worry about, anyway.

  1. I think this one's a no-brainer, but it's so much more interesting to not call the person out.

  2. Pij, the suspense is killing us. Who, pray tell, do you suspect?

  3. It isn't me. I would have hung up signs that read "Fondle Restonian"

  5. The Scissor man...who else? In his delusional mind, he's campaigning through this site.

    Anon 12:13 here. Thanks. I actually did think the likeliest candidate was Lightning Rod.

  7. There's only one solution: googlebomb the web until googling "Restonian" takes you straight to Robin Smyers' page at reston.org.

  8. Maybe it's not actually Rod putting up the signs but instead someone who thinks he's Rod

    You may be right. I heard that someone who was dogsled racing up in Alaska made a wrong turn and ended up in Reston putting up those signs and shouting "I did a Rod!"

  11. I saw the "Google Restonian" sign inside window of a car that also had a big ol' advertisement for "SHARPENING" affixed to it. hmmm... I dunno...

  12. Could it have been "I did a Todd", Peasant? If so, you might have heard the Teabag Queen herself.

  15. Pidge wins this comment thread. Restonian, is there a prize you can award? Perhaps a keychain-sized DRB-approved color wheel?
