Road Rage

Occasionally I'll run across one of my signs laying in the dirt all ripped up because of someone's misplaced anger. It's kind of sad to see the poor little sign all torn up like that, but it also proves that the message is getting out there, that people actually read the signs. And I guess it's not so bad since hundreds if not thousands of people got a chance to read the sign before it was torn down in a fit of rage.

Luckily, though, a torn sign doesn't necessarily have to mean the end of a sign's useful life. It's not like it's that big of a deal to just toss it in the recycle bin and make a new one, but I'm actually finding it to be a lot of fun to "rebuild" damaged signs. And I'm getting pretty good at it.

Here are a couple of signs that Scarlet and I repaired this past Saturday. Tadaa!

A little black and white duct tape and the ability to put a child's puzzle together is all it takes. The "Wiretap This !" sign in the upper right corner was an easy repair since the "ripper" was obviously very weak and couldn't get up the strength to do a good job of it. Here's how it looks now:

Ready to go back into service, reminding the public of what a miserable failure their government has become.

Soldiering on is the name of the game.

Did you realize that duct tape is made from baby seals, depleted uranium, and the blood of Sudanese sex slaves?

I only rip up stop signs and the movie "Signs" starring Mel Gibson and Joaquin Phoenix.

Thank you, PoP.

Affirmative, Kommander Kvatch.

Kramer, you BASTARD, everyone knows that duct tape is made out of ground up duct feathers which are gently plucked from the duct's back while it's sleeping and glue.

Butchieboy, good to see you're doing your part to help society.
