"It was clever, kind of cute, but not what it was intended for," said Lippincott, who saw the sign during his morning commute. "Those signs are deployed for a reason to improve traffic conditions, let folks know there's a road closure."

"It's sort of amusing, but not at all helpful," he told FOXNews.com.

Gotta have fun somehow!!

You're a goofball, you know that? I ever tell you about one of my cousins who was working for the road crew in Georgia? He was the guy sitting on the tailgate of the pickup as it drove down the road putting out the orange cones to close one lane of traffic off. Well evidently he fell off. When the driver didn't see him anymore he backed up to check on him.....and ran him over. He survived unharmed. Of course that was the 3rd time he'd been run over in his life. He isn't all there.
