Eugene Mirman — who voices Gene Belcher on Fox’s Bob’s Burgers — was apparently having a nice time in Portsmouth, a small, yet assuredly fine New Hampshire town in June. He strolled the streets and shopped with his girlfriend. When he returned to his car, he found a parking ticket. He was displeased.

It was only for $15, but Mirman rallied out of principle; he merely parked his card in backward. Thus, he took out a full newspaper ad, found via Reddit, to express his disappointment.

Here’s an excerpt from Mirman’s letter, after laying down the background.

For those hoping this will be read in the voice of the lovably idiotic and simple Gene, Mirman teases that reality.
