THE CRAZY SIGN MAN….
My first glimpse of crazy-sign-posting people happened back when I was little and my mom would take us to her hometown to visit her family. My grandfather, aunts and uncles and cousins all lived close to this small town, so when we would go to visit, I would cross my fingers and hope to drive by the crazy sign guy’s house…I am going back home to visit the end of the month, and I will gladly post pics, so you, too, can see the full-scale of crazy I am writing about. I don’t mean to say crazy in a derogative tone either. Don’t get me wrong, there’s Crazy-crazy, which I like because it’s usually humorous…and there’s psycho – crazy, which usually involves serial killing which scares the shit out of me. The crazy I am talking about is freedom of speech posting crazy, with some politics and shocking thoughts kind of crazy….
The original sign-posting crazy from my childhood was very political in his sign postings…He lives on the edge of town, has a huge chunk of land, with signs everywhere, ranting about, well I can’t even tell , because there are so many signs, you can’t even digest it. Believe me, I’ll take pics….
Now we have a local guy who posts on his sign…its a two-way, so both lanes of traffic can read his rants and they are never the same on both sides…you have to give him that. Most of the time they are political…followed by religious…followed by very opinionated religious….I have been meaning to take pics since we moved here 7 years ago, and now I am determined to…everytime I see a new crazy rant, I will share with you, because I am hoping, you, like me, love you some crazy people….
His sign today reads…
say what? yep…I don’t know where that came from…crazy….sometimes the crazy man does a play with words and those are my favorite…when Obama was running for president, he put “It would be an Obamanation to vote for Obama….” Crazy good, right?
I’ll keep you posted. By the way, I couldn’t take a pic of the other side, because Ryan was driving too fast…and you can’t trespass on the guy’s property….Ryan said it wasn’t a good crazy though…we only love the crazy rants….yes, that would make us crazy too…
