Here's Your Sign

Got a visitor today reading from the archives, and I had to go back and see which old post they were reading. It was the one with the Pit Bull Farm sign, and to that post back in July, I had gotten the following reply-- about signs-- from Jan in Sydney:

I remember driving in the Hills district here, an outer area of Sydney. A sign caught my eye: roobubs for sale. Joeys, baby kangaroos? Some new strange species? All was solved when I reached the stall further down the road. All that was being sold was rhubarb.

This reminded me of one of our favorite grassroots roadside signs from the countryside we used to drive through when the kids were small. Tacked to the side of a tree, and there for years, in the way-back-country was a hand-lettered sign that said

* BABY RABBITES FOR SALE *

I always pictured fuzzy little bunnies in yarmulkes.

Don't know why, but this reminds me of the midwestern guy whose new business failed a few years back (keep in mind, this is a true story and there's not going to be a punchline). He'd decided to start a fast-food joint similar to KFC and was hoping for an eventual franchise. Somehow his business never really got off the ground: Bunny In A Bucket
