    Around 1960, down the street (toward Central Square) from my apartment
    in Cambridge, at the corner of (IIRC) Magazine and Chestnut was a
    church with a nice green neon "Jesus Saves" sign.

    So one night we took a "purloined" S&H Green Stamps sign and appended
    it to the end ;-)

    Naaah! Take it back, had to be Magazine and Putnam.

    At an apartment on the corner of Magazine and Chestnut, on the third
    floor balcony, was where the BU coeds used to strip naked and do their
    laundry in full view of the whole neighborhood ;-)

    The church didn't like it one bit, but they never did figure out who
    did it ;-)

    the modern term is "culture jamming"

    I cant recall exactly where, but for years when we drove up SH27 to
    auckland we went past a large rock, upon which someone had painted
    "Jesus saves" on it, and a similar wit had added "stamps" to the end. As
    an entire family of atheists, we loved it, and us kids used it as an
    "are we there yet" marker.
