saw something about road sign hacking on the biltwell blog yesterday so i went looking for bigger images for you guys. i thought about doing snazzy grafix myself where the text doesn’t bleed out over the background and all that fancy stuff but screw it. here’s a quick post all in good fun.
let’s say the next time you’ve put a few ales in your belly and you’re riding your horsie home to warm stew and that good book you’ve been waiting to crack open by alexis de tocqueville you see one of those flashing light warning signs beside the road. it says “EXIT 351 CLOSED AHEAD.” you might feel a bit like a prankster with the ale warming inside of you and impacting your emotions with self-aggrandized thoughts of impenetrability. you might also wish you could change that warning message to something that pleases you and makes you laugh all the way home.
well now you can! follow these three simple steps and you can have passers-by thinking there are aliens, a chemical leak, a terrorist attack, or the most popular, zombies ahead!
truthfully speaking, there will be zombies ahead, just not the brain eating kind, only the “unable to think for themselves kind that walk around doing what they are told void of the consequences of their meaningless lives.” as a general rule, it is best to avoid these zombies at all costs. i don’t think we need roadside signs for that any longer.
but say you want to warn drivers of a police sobriety test, or that the area they are about to pass smells like a zillion diseased yak farts. this is how:
excellent. unprotected display electronics…. muah ha ha ha ha!
might i suggest you start simple with YOU ARE NOT FREE.
ta da! after your prank, i suggest you go home and drink more ale to keep up those self-aggrandized thoughts of impenetrability, eat your stew, and fall asleep reading “democracy in america” or “the old regime and the revolution.”
