Ahead Stop

Is it just me, or does anyone else read these things backwards as well? Of course, I'm sure that this is meant to be read as "STOP AHEAD", and I'm sure that many clever people are able to read it as such, but I can't ever seem to read these painted messages any other way than left to right, top to bottom. Therefore, I'm constantly having to readjust my brain, telling it that "AHEAD STOP" really means, "STOP AHEAD", which provides adequate time for an accident to occur.

When you think about it, is it really a good idea to have people looking down at the road, trying to read a cryptic message while operating a motor vehicle? It seems to me that the highway department (or whoever is in charge of such lunacy) is just asking for trouble with these things.

Why Mommy is a Democrat

I'm glad to know that there are parents in this world who care enough about their children to make sure that they are brainwashed at an early age.

Hey! I've got some great ideas for the next set of books in this series! Here are some of them now:

"Why Daddy is a Republican"
"Why Uncle Rob is a Libertarian"
"Why Grandpa is a Communist"
"Why Great Grandma was in the KKK"

I'm sure that, with charming enough illustrations, these books could be quite a hit!

It's good to know that good, old-fashioned propaganda has survived into the 21st century. Hopefully there will be more where this came from! I can hardly wait!
