SOMERSWORTH, N.H. — A billboard in New Hampshire that has raised eyebrows among Somersworth residents has been vandalized for a second time.

The billboard advertises the cafe Teatotaller, and originally featured a male model eating a breakfast sandwich with the text, “I like my men, like I like my coffee — with breakfast at Teatotaller.” Foster’s Daily Democrat reports the original ad had graffiti stenciled over it sometime in September 2017.

A new advertisement, featuring the same model and the words “Chai curious?” replaced the old advertisement a few months later, but someone threw eggs at the billboard in the past few weeks. Cafe owner Emmett Soldati says they are still assessing the situation.

Somersworth Police Capt. Russ Timmons says the incident would be considered criminal mischief.
