The Wednesday Photo

Customized crossing signal control on Melrose Ave...

This kind of thing might be considered defacing the public infrastructure in the uber-civilized societies of Germany or Japan (and certainly in Singapore, where chewing gum is a crime), but when tastefully and cleverly done, I like it. I'm no anarchist, but it seems to me that we all need to expand our collective sense of humor these days. As the shit continues to hit the cosmic fan (and we ain't seen nothing yet, folks), the ability to laugh at a world going to hell might be the difference between hanging onto one's sanity and slipping into the darkness of The Other Side -- even if you're just waiting for a green light on Melrose.

Sometime in the 80's, NYC put up a bunch of signs that say "No Honking Except For Danger".

I don't think I've ever seen one that didn't have the "D" whited out.
