Signs


From Fox News:
UNION COUNTY, N.C. (WGHP)— An electronic DOT road sign was apparently hacked when a displayed message read "Impeach Obama."

DOT officials told WSOC they had not heard of the display when first contacted on Sunday night, but sent an engineer to correct the sign afterward.

The sign, which was located at the intersection of Unionville-Indian Trail and Ridge roads in Union County, was displayed for an unknown amount of time over the weekend and corrected later Sunday evening.

Hacked? By the same guy who hacked a Weiner no doubt! Just funnin' ya. It WAS Weiner! "Thanks for throwing me under the bus", he says in his own hacked little way.

Impeach Toonces.

Ok, not important whatsoever, but I used to like a block away from where that picture was taken only a few months ago. No joke. And based on my experience of the area, I don't even think a lot of people saw it anyway. It's pretty much just an old back road that people only went down to avoid traffic from time to time. The "hacker" should have picked a a better sign.

Someone's tax dollars working for REAL hope and change... {Snicker}

Is this a great country or what.

Subvet said...

At last, a good use of our tax money!

That is so funny, I can't believe the hacker would do that.

A little something to do with one's time between job searches. . . .

Doom - he's too busy recovering from the "Battle of the Bulge."

Nickie - If there was the slightest hint of tuna around that sign board...

Lone - perhaps traffic picked up a bit when that sign went up?

sig94 said...

Andy - now that's change I can believe in!

Odie - indeed it is. When a young sign board, possiblly out for the first time all by itself, goes for the gusto - well, ya gotta think, "Now there's a sign board that's going places!"

Subvet - betcha those are local tax dollars.

Toyin - I'd like to see this turn into an epidemic of impeachment partial electromechanical devices.

QR - someone had the initiative and the skills. He should do okay for himself.

WoFat said...

It's the thought that counts.

Zardoz said...

Wonder if this was one of those "shovel ready" jobs we've been told about?

sig94 said...

WoFat - let's keep that thought too.

sig94 said...

Zardoz - I'm ready to take a shovel and a pickaxe to it.
