A CYNICAL LOOK AT THE DAILY GRIND

STOPPED IN HIS TRACKS

Officials in Oak Lawn, Ill., think stop signs are a joke.


The Chicago suburb has installed second signs under the regular ones at 50 intersections with messages such as "WHOAAAA" or "Stop right there pilgrim."

Other signs read "Stop ... and smell the roses" and "Stop ... in the naaame of love."

Mayor Dave Hielmann said the campaign launched last week was to make people "smile and take notice" of the stop signs.

While the mayor was posing for a photo with one of the new signs, a driver sped by without stopping.

:)

And that's all there is, folks!

Models in bikinis paid to stand by the busiest areas, will definitely make speeding teen boys (and some mid-life crisis guys pause). The bad news- they didn't go through stop signs, but instead had more fender benders.
