Everything I Like Causes Cancer

Where we've been convinced to write a new post on Dec. 2. Stay tuned!

I am getting crushed at work this week and have little to say that isn't complaining.  I did hear a story on the radio this morning about how someone hacked into an Illinois Department of Transportation computer and changed the wording on a road sign near here to:


DAILY LANE CLOSURES
DUE TO ZOMBIES

Apparently this isn't the first occurrence of sign tampering; others have warned of raptors.  I hope I see one.  A sign, not a zombie.  Duh.

Heh... Zombie = MODOT workers leanin' on shovels.

Hate to depress you further, but the sad thing is they'll probably waste time & money prosecuting the people responsible, instead of just fixing their signs so they can't be tampered with, and showing a sense of humor by laughing it off...

This doesn't absolve you, you know? Everyone knows you did it!

Hey, that's pretty funny! Everyone knows that zombies are bad drivers.

If you've never read The Zombie Survival Guide by Max Brooks (Mel's son) I suggest it. Funny as all get out in a stone cold sober manner.

Heh, yeah sure Gwen, you "heard it on the radio". Admit it, it was you!

I love when people do that stuff. And then I get jealous when I'm not creative enough to think of it.

There's a law firm in town with a great big fountain outside it, and once a year, or so, someone dumps a thing of laundry detergent in it, so all of MacArther is covered in big floating bubbles.

It always makes me smile.

Only makes sense. Do you know what kind of front end damage a zombie can do? Nationwide will not be on your side.

I think they did it in Texas too. Pretty funny.

Hope you're feeling better Gwennie!

I read about that. If I had seen it, I would have thought, "Zombies? Makes sense."

Yup saw that on the news too! Imagine the double take, craning your neck on the road when you saw that one!!

Hilarious! For some reason that reminds me of these trucks I see from a butcher here in LA:
