Slightly Insulting Chicago Posters: Nerds in Printers Row

We did a post about Slightly Insulting Chicago Posters back in July and at the time there was a comical poster about the South Loop (although it was much tamer than some of the other quips about other Chicago neighborhoods).  Well they've continued to churn them out and now have one for Printer's Row:

For those of you who don't think these are very funny, take a look at a post from the blog Austin Talks who examines some of the posters racial undertones in South and West side neighborhoods (like Austin's poster).

What would be funny is if all the Chicago blogs collectively decided to ignore these clowns until they actually came up with something clever.

I'm not hateful. If it was funny, I'd laugh.

If this isn't funny to you, what is? Most of the posters are hilarious, esp the Logan Square. Here's a link to all of them:

Let me see if I can summarize the posters:

CHICAGO: Come for the things people from Kansas enjoy (mostly drinking), stay away from the things people from Kansas are afraid of (mostly people not from Kansas).

How'd I do?
