Hey Mark, welcome to the Coffeehouse players group!  Tell us about your Coffeehouse experiences!  I have organized three in the last year and they were all pretty successful!

No offense, but I think you guys aren't giving your parents enough credit regarding the poster.  I think most parents would probably "get it" but they just don't like the visual.  I know I "get it" but I also know I wouldn't want that poster anywhere in my home cuz the last thing I wanna see, even once, never mind on a daily basis, is some other person sitting naked on a toilet.  lol.

Just because someone is put off by a visual and doesn't find it pleasing to eye like others might, doesn't necessarily mean they don't "get it" is all I'm saying.  They probably just prefer different "powerful images that make a statement."  8-)

There are those who would not get it, I understand that as well.  I just don't think you can paint all with the same paint brush that don't like the visual.

Just my 2 cents, no offense meant.
