| The act of "...posting large, easy to read and obviously homemade signs on America's freeways is one of the last outlets for individuals to express themselves to the masses. Messages tend to poke fun at the ruling elite..."
Got to thank Mary Lou Semour
, posting on Rational Review almost 9 months ago to discuss an idea pregant with promise |
I'd guess one could take it a step further | Namely, modifying signs both of a public nature [government posted signs, for instance
] and those under the auspices of the private sector [billboards] to change the context of their messages | Not unlike what occurred when ~ back in 1979 ~ some wags in Elizabethtown New York, modified two different municipal signs
One changed from "Jobs for Your Community" to Jobs for Your CommunE
; the other changed from Essex County Courthouse Addition to Essex County Courthouse Addic
When there, both always gave me a chuckle |
This is not to say that public sign modification is without its risks | First off, one would be altering offical public information or messing with private property [billboards] | A feller could get arrested for that | But the idea of new signage, ~ the freeway blogging concept ~ independently created and posituioned for all to see and think about, that may be a good thing...
