Road Sign Hack hilarity continues...

It's like the old BCS, except the 2.0 makes it fancy. Wondering why you can't post here? Check out the rules and expectations, and it all should be made clear...

This does beat out the Zombie warnings... I wonder if the local news for this one thinks the people responsible were a crack team of hackers from the local college too. ;)

Yeah I have mixed feelings with this...

Yes, it is funny, but there was a reason the sign was there. Changing the sign can cause problems if it was left as is.

I've never seen one of those signs with any absolutely pressing information on it, so I vote the humor outweighs the possible confusion it may induce.

For about a year and a half, there was a sign along one of the highways between Tucson and Phoenix that said
Code: Select all
+----------+
|        . |
|      ''! |
|      !-- |
+----------+

I don't think that sign was helpful to anyone as it was, but man, a zombie warning would've come in handy.

This sooo beats Zombies.

I must respectfully disagree. The zombie, nazi zombie, and raptor alerts were much more funny to me. This one is funny, but the immediacy of "ZOMBIES IN AREA, RUN!!!" puts the first ones over the top.

And the zombie warnings weren't? This is an awesome homage to the old GameBoy game, I think I still have it some where.
