Sad.  Oh well.  It'll be OK, as long as the keep selling T-shirts marked  " Meine Großeltern gingen nach Österreich und alles was ich bekam war dieses farking T-Shirt. "

Do they realize that when they change it, it's the end of tourism. No one will take a trip to see it if it has a normal, or more normal name.

That sign is on I-94 in Michigan. I should know, I just went by that sign about 20 minutes ago on my way home from my sisters place. And I knew that there was also a Climax, MN, but not that it was near Fertile, MN. Those wacky Meenysoatans.

Obviously the thrill of the theft is one thing but what if the just straight up sold those signs to tourists? And I mean real signs made of metal with the govt paint job, etc.

Or when they are made, fold in a tracking device so you can find and fine the thieves at a price that was totally worth it.

I'm curious. What do you think the thieves do with the "F*cking" signs they've pilfered? Hang them above the toilet?

The John Holmes Rd sign disappears now and then from its post between Ann Arbor and Dexter, MI. Back in the 80s it was replaced almost monthly.

csb

My dad was in the sign business.  In New Brunswick NJ, home of Rutgers University, there was a Beaver Rd.   The signs kept getting stolen so they renamed it Bevier Rd  I put the letters on the new signs for installation circa 1979.
