Why do all of the stop signs in my neighborhood have stickers on them that say "HAMMERTIME"
I sort of got it when they had a 'Stop & Think' sticker - but Hammertime? WTF? Do they think I'm gonna jump up and dance at each and every stopsign?

Anybody know what's doing?

Yikes - late 80's was the 'first try' at college - I remember the song - seeing the signs brought it instantly to mind - but the stickers around town NOW - huh? granted I live surrounded by corn and soybeans.... but rural IL cannot be that far behind.

IS there no deeper meaning, nothing new going on, just the same old lameness from 20+ years back?

Think about it... when the new generations can't think of a new idea... they go Retro! LOL It's true!

And as we know... there is VERY little original thought left in the world! Edit that... left in the US! Seems we've run a bit dry

Thanks All.
While the idea that the wellspring of original thought has gone dry is saddening, I suppose the upshot is that it does me a bit of good to know that it's just another piece of recycled flotsam and jetsam not something altogether new that I have missed completely...

Seriously. Sigh. Seriously - 'stop sign red' - and can we even think of any other intended use?

Thanks Heather - needed the laugh...

Ha! My favorite non-related child.

Mac - Stickering manholes? You better pick a new past-time.

(was that against my own forum's rules?)
