The same people who brought us this bizarre billboard have put up another equally perplexing HIV test billboard.
Apparently we should all be inspired to get an HIV test in honor of our mothers, which makes no sense at all.
I don't think a lot of mothers would be thrilled to hear their child say, "Hey, I was thinking about you so I got a free HIV test."
Besides your mother being offended, it probably results in an unsettling conversation about why you think you need an HIV test.
One that might include your mother wanting to repeat a safe sex speech she gave you as a teenager that was so awkward you've tried to block it out.
Finally, it's somewhat disturbing that a person's thought process would jump from a life threatening virus usually contracted through having unprotected sex or using dirty needles to their mother.
