It's a Sign

Give me a Sign!


In Big City, Texas we live in what is called a "Master Planned Community".   That means it is a lovely place to live and raise children but there isn't a lot of personality allowed architecturally.   Signs and buildings and landscaping are all heavily regulated.   That is great for property values but does not allow for much creativity. 

But where I get to live in Colorado has creativity galore.

I love creativity. 
And I love a sense of humor.


So it really tickles me that the city of Salida has not sent someone out to "fix" these stop signs.  I know the stickers have been up for at least a couple of years…and I think longer than that. Not that I am condoning vandalism, but hey! if you are going to vandalize city property you might as well do it in a way that brings a smile to people's faces.

See?

Why, this one could even qualify as a PSA.


Stop Burning Dinosaurs. 
Food for thought as I am idling in my car at the stop sign.



I love this one. 
Definitely a cultural reference.
From 1990!

U Can't Touch This. 
Love those pants.

Another PSA.

There are at least two of the "Stop Gossiping" signs in town. One near the High School.  That was probably wise. 

And this one says;
Stop Laughing at Danzig.
Another cultural reference.

Ok, I confess. I had to look this one up. It didn't ring any bells with me. Danzig? Who is that?

He's a horror punk rock/ heavy metal guy-Glenn Danzig of The Misfits- and apparently excels at making a fool of himself.
Here are a couple of links to explain: here and here 
I know Boy has a t-shirt with The Misfits logo on it:

I've sent this logo through the wash more than once.

So here's to creativity and a sense of humor.  

And if you feel like being creative, here's a link to some similar stickers.  Use at your own risk.

I'm not condoning anything.
