The Old Highway Signs You Just Might Crave: The Reincarnation of Burma-Shave!
Randy Mazie


The Lone Ranger Says:

In these days of COVID,
what can you do, you ask?
Always wash your hands
and always wear your mask.

What Is an Iconoclast?

If you think this is a religious sign
as you're driving past,
and get upset and knock it down,
you're an iconoclast.

Speedometer Checkpoint:

If you can't read this sign
as you're driving past,
we suggest that you slow down:
you're driving way too fast!

Your Local Drive-In Says, Eyes on the Road!

It's nice to cuddle with your honey;
nothing really could be sweeter.
But watch the road and save the smoochin'
for when you're at the drive-in theatre.

A Word of Caution from Your Local Police Department:

If you slow down to read this sign,
then you know your speed is fine.
But if the words are all a blur,
a speeding ticket you'll incur.

Dear Randy, My husband and I met at a local drive-end Theater in Tampa, Florida where he worked his way through collage back in 1961! We have just celebrated our 55 years of marriage! Judith and John

Love it!! When I was little, we used to see roadside signs when going to the NC mountains that said "See Rock City". My dad said there was no such place. I think he was just afraid we'd want to go there!!

Funny. Didn't know they used to have poems/sayings on highway signs.

I like 'em. They rhyme, and they are catchy, as well as being funny. My dear wife is one of those self confident people who live on the edge of those traffic rules you've expounded. Here's something I wrote while in terror sitting next to while she drives. Drivin Casual Drivin up Hurricane Hill As casual as could be Eatin ice cream with a spoon And steering with her knee

Smiles bloom along the way. Hilarity is bountiful in these.
