The colorful performers silently scolded drivers and pedestrians who ignored safety laws at a major downtown intersection.

In Philly? Well they've got balls; I'll give them that.

Sounds pretty effective to me.

"Steve got into a wreck while texting and driving.  The cranial trauma caused him to become a mime.

Don't text and drive."

Follow-up: Mime struck by texting driver.

Am I the only one that read that as memes?

Sure, boo Santa Claus, but hands off the freaky mimes.

I think that they did this in Caracas, and that it worked pretty well.

tickets are also an idea. moran tax.

Every once in a while Connecticut puts up flashing road signs to warn about distracted driving.

Don't ever confuse clowns and mimes

It's dangerous to shoot mimes.  Here, take these:

they should watch the drivers ed film by Troy McClure. you remember him right?

"the decapitation of lead foot Larry"

"Alice, through the windshield glass"

I'm not normally one to scream about "the taxpayers dollar" but between hiring mimes to "scold" people who obviously don't give a shiat about their own safety (and should be watching the road and not mimes) and PAINTING A TEXTING LANE ON THE STREET, I have to wonder what other brilliant costs the Philly city government has incurred.

FTA: "Each year, about three dozen pedestrians are killed Philadelphia."

If by that you mean that 3 dozen people were killed because they were too busy stuffed in their phones to pay attention to living, then I am OK with that.

Mimes and clowns, or, as they were called on that day, "Targets."
 
2013-04-02 11:59:32 AM
Am I the only one who read that as "mines"?

The difference between a dead dog and a dead mime found on the road?
There are tire skids marks before the dog.

That would also be effective.

Way to up the murder rate.

Are you from Philadelphia?

If yes, then you are the only one who read that as "mines".
If no, then chances are somebody else read that as "mines also.

But don't feel bad if you are the only one. It's still an interesting idea and a useful contribution to Philadelphian high way debate.

Road sign:

ROAD SIDE MINED FOR NEXT TEN MILES. STAY IN YOUR LANE.

Still no cure for SUVs, though.

I was going to do the "a mime is a terrible thing to waste" joke but I thought about it and it isn't really true, is it?

Discworld's Lord Vetenari is in the habit of handing mimes upside down in his dungeons. In front of their face is a little sign that reads: LEARN THE WORDS.

Tough but fair.

Would it be semantically correct  to say that mimes are literally an insult to the intelligence of an adult or bright child of four?

Sass-O-Rev: Mimes and clowns, or, as they were called on that day, "Targets."


Maybe if we're lucky two mimes will get into a fight.

/And yes, I suppose that technically, neither is actually a mime.

Me want. I actually had a couple of those I lost in a house fire some 5 years ago. Still haven't replaced them. Mine were the percussion type.

Was that Caracas or Carcosa? 'Cause that would make a lot more sense.

"Philadelphia uses mines and clowns ..." Putting mines in the streets of philly couldn't hurt, might help.

The best mime rifle wasn't a rifle at all, but rather a blunderbuss loaded with cat teeth.

/ An elegant weapon for a more civilized age.
