Sign Off

It’s All There In Black And White

Someone in the Melbourne suburb of Langwarrin is having a bit of fun, installing unauthorised street signs. My colleague Steve Perkin reports in his popular column In Black And White in the Herald Sun newspaper that the signs are professionally painted and installed but authorities have pulled them down because they are illegal. One sign said, ‘If you notice this notice, you’ll notice that it’s not worth noticing.’’ Another sign said `Hump’ but instead of the normal depiction of a road hump, it modified the image ever-so-slightly to show a couple er, um, cohabiting.

FOOTNOTE: The humpire strikes back.

I want to laugh, but I could see there might be a bit of danger here.

In a town near where I live there is a road named Roop Ave. That sign is always altered to say "Poop" Ave.

But the most altered sign around is for a business called the Fussy Cleaners.

That is funny. I like the first one best. It is just possible it could be for real that one...

that's an interesting switch from kids pulling down street signs to hang them on their walls...
