I was in West Virgina visiting my sister, went for a walk and saw this sign –
The POSTED was in about 70 point type with the No Trespassing in 12 point.
Duh? With the sign stapled to a tree do you need to spell out it is posted? That is like having all the stop signs with great big letters SIGN followed by a tiny “stop” underneath. Anyway most of those people don’t read.
Other signs that irk me:
- Those freeway memorial signs, The Richard F. Bezzelboots Memorial Highway. What the hell? Who was that guy? The three people who know him will die out leaving a useless blight of a sign for years.
- I’m seeing large signs proclaiming “The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act bla bla bla…” on the freeways. Is there not a better use of money to stimulate the economy than putting even more bullshit signs on our roadways? Plant some goddamn flowers or better yet some edible plants, or solar cells to get us off oil.
- Signs along various roadways: “Your Tax Dollars At Work”. I get it shit-for-brains, you are spending my money. Just fix the road; I’ll figure out you spent my money to do it (along with giving yourself plenty of income – like the city manager with the $800,000/yr salary and $600,000/yr retirement for life package.)
