Dan Who?

Park Cities People Call Dan

“Call Dan” signs are scattered on lawns throughout the Park Cities, but who’s Dan?  What’s his number?  And why should we call him?

    I’m betting the Dan in question is state Rep. Dan Branch, and I’m betting the reason is school finance.

    100% definitive; its not Dan Branch…
    Its the honorable mention winner at the DHF Classic

    It’s genius marketing whoever it is. Vague enough to get your attention and aren’t you dying to know who Dan is? Whoever he is, I’d do business with him. I sure hope it’s someone in the mortgage business !

    Whoever Dan is, he is a genius

    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Dan is a name. It refers sometimes to the short form of the name Daniel. Dan, or the acronym DAN may refer to the following:

    Persons
    Fyodor Dan, a Russian Marxist revolutionary
    DJ Dan, an electronic music artist who uses the singular name “Dan” as his stage name
    Dan (Bible), one of the sons of Jacob

    As two of the three are deceased, its got to be DJ Dan

    Is this a command to us, or Dan?
    or a request for Dan to phone home?
    Is some forlorn fiance, left at the altar, desperately trying to find her lost love?
    Is someone trying to pass the buck? “Why ask me? Call Dan.”
    Why black letters on yellow?
    And what about, Naomi?

    Give this guy some business. In this day and age, a little ingenuity is nice to see.

    I’m pretty sure its DJDAN as he is playing the electric daisy carnival in Dallas on June 18…

    I’d love to give the guy some business, but who is he? What’s his number?

    And I take it DAN is a sesame street fan? Can any business stick signs out like that? I hope not, it’s ugly and tacky. Say 15 other businesses want to advertise this way, everywhere this guy has his sign picture 15 other signs lined up. Gah. I hope it’s illegal, if it’s not I predict 1000′s of signs like this out soon.

    kmom- DAN has his signs in his friends yards and the people he doea business with. he’s not just putting them all over the place. the home owners are putting them in their own yard because they support DAN.

    I agree with kmom. Political signs are bad enough, no reason to make our neighborhood into a big advertisement for everything.

  17. sls @ June 10, 2011 at 6:14 pm
    It’s illegal in the parkway, at least.

  18. kmom @ June 11, 2011 at 1:24 pm
    Well then, let me think of who all might benefit from signs in my yard. Lawn service, sprinkler repair service, favorite garden store, maid service, pool service, plumbing service, electrical service, handyman, hair salon (2, the men go to a diff), dentist, nail salon, chiropractor, health club, pet sitter, bank, tailor, jeweler, rug cleaner, Pest control company, poop scoop company, cleaners, chimney sweep, painter, dog groomer, veternarian, pet store, dermatologist, caterer, we could go NUTS on restaurants we like, deli, fish market, florist, computer repair company, game store, video outlet, decorator, landscaper, travel agent, fave airline, fave hotel chain, Optical, Optometrist, Donut store, Coffee shop, party store, shoe store, shoe repair, vacuum store, favorite shopping/entertainment websites – that could be a slew as well, alarm company…………

    Dan is Kilroy’s 1st cousin. Both were here.

  20. DemBones @ June 13, 2011 at 9:09 am
    If Dan wanted business, he’d give contact info.

    I have assumed Dan *Koller* is correct that we are to call Dan Branch and tell him not to cut school financing so drastically. The signs I saw were next to Mad for Plaid signs.

  21. Mavenmere @ June 26, 2011 at 12:12 am
    I like to remove Dan whenever I see him. Who really cares?

  22. Rug Maintenance @ January 15, 2013 at 1:46 pm
    Only reason the sign would make any sense as if “Dan” was well known to the community.

    I think I have solved the Dan mystery. Vandals removed the bottom portion of the sign that had the contact info.
