Ztohoven struck one more time in 2003 by replacing all (750) posters in Citylights /a backlighted advertisement display case aapx 2x1m) in Prague's subway systém by white posters with a big black question mark and a web address of their page on it. This overnight action hit all the people on their way to the work during the morning. [1] Ztohoven's web page showed nothing but few words - that at 2pm there will be more information displayed. At 2pm the webpage turned into an invitation to an opening of an instant exhibition in the vestibul of Dejvicka subway station, where each of Ztohoven members, plus invited artists, turned existing citilights into original art pieces using all the advantages of this media – backlight, electricity, sound and space. All Illegal. [2] Art pieces lived nothing long. Everything was cleaned up by subway workers during next 24hours, but in the mean time, hundreds of people came to se and whitness this event which has no precendendt in Czech art history. In connection to the choice of typically advertising media and because of parody of promoting themselves in order to promote the principles of art, group named this act „subconscious raped“. It was their first action that led to prosecution of a group.[3]

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Duckpin_bowling
The origin of the sport is a subject of some debate. One possible origin is that duckpin bowling began in Baltimore around 1900, at a bowling, billiards and pool hall owned by future baseball Hall of Famers John McGraw and Wilbert Robinson, both of the then Baltimore Orioles.

However, according to a 2005 baseball book by Howard W. Rosenberg (Cap Anson 3: Muggsy John McGraw and the Tricksters: Baseball's Fun Age of Rule Bending), an article from May 1894 in the Lowell Sun confirms the existence of duckpins. Rosenberg traced the story of crediting the origins of duckpins to McGraw and Robinson as far back as Shirley Povich of The Washington Post in the late 1930s.

A major hole in the origin of the whopper has since come to light. Now accessible on the Internet, thanks to the scanning in of old newspapers, is The Pittsburgh Press of March 3, 1929, which ran an article from Baltimore saying that Robinson "originated" the sport and also gave it its name. The article can be found on the Internet by searching for the following phrase: "Wilbert Robinson Claims He Invented Duckpins".

The Microgramma Bold Extended typeface was used extensively in the Star Trek universe, such as Franz Joseph's The Star Trek Star Fleet Technical Manual.[2] The font, in both its original and various altered forms, was incorporated into numerous displays and on ship exteriors in six of the Star Trek motion pictures, as well as depictions of "earlier technology" display screens, particularly for the Enterprise "prequel" series, during the four later television series.

In the episode "The Laughing Fish" of Batman: The Animated Series, there is a gag referring to this where The Joker seems to be flirting with Harley Quinn by asking her to "be [his] little mermaid." He then puts a giant fake fish head over her head, to which Harley responds, "You're really sick, you know that, boss?"
