    Lightbulb stayback500feet

    Lights on and nobody home. It had to be made by the Governmet. It is obvious that someone messed up big time. I know I didn't see the writting on the bottom till I looked closer with my bifocals. I wonder how they expect the eldy to be able to see the bottom. I guess when someone loose their life they will change the sign. I ask my DOT one time to put a child at play sign up in a trailer court where I lived once. This is the reply I got." If we do that then the children will think they can play in the road and be safe."
    Duh not the brightest color in the box either.

    Reminds me of one I saw in MAD magazine about30 or35 years ago. It read:
    DO NOT READ THIS SIGN UNDER PENALTY OF BYLAW 1-25 $50 FINE.

    Wanted to put one up when I was on council just to show we had a sense of humour. Never got it done. Guess I was the only one that thought it was funny.
    This is of course only my humble opinion, but then again, its likely the only one that matters.

    Ya we played in the hen house for a bit, but then Kiwi brought out the flourescent coloured "guard sheep", and I seem to remember rescuing Tempie's "unmentionables" from the flag pole at one point too.... mmmmmmm......
