Signs

If it doesn't fit anywhere else, it fits here

Signs

Postby kurt_w » Fri Apr 27, 2007 1:37 pm

I just noticed those billboards on I-90 that say "Wisconsin Fun!" ... with no further explanation.

Have those been there all along, and I just never noticed? Or are they new?

And what, exactly, is "Wisconsin Fun" anyway? Maybe I shouldn't ask that question.

Another interesting example of signage.

In the bus shelter at Regent & Breese, the bus schedule has a note that says

Rides with asterix operate on Fridays only


Of course, a bus ride with Asterix would be trÚs amusant, non?

As long as Cacaphonix wasn't along ... and Obelix left his menhir at home.

I believe that this question was definitively answered in this thread.

Huh? Do you mean that Wisconsin Fun is "booze, drugs, and Bucky Badger"?

Or that Wisconsin Fun consists of interminable wrangling over the minutiae of a local newspaper's crime blotter with a semi-literate moron who apparently types with mittens on her hands?

Please clarify.

Hey, whatever's your thing, man.

Drugs...typing with mittens...it's all good.

...


A boozed-up Bucky Badger on drugs. Double fun if it's a real badger. Triple fun if it's in Julaine Appling's car.

I did a Google image search for the words "Wisconsin Fun" and this is the first image that came up...

Hey, I know those guys!

OK, not really. I only wish I were that cool.
