And This One From Minnesota

Without looking for them, I keep coming across stupid signs or signs for stupid people.  This sign is located in the small town of Cottage Grove, Minnesota.  (Photo credit to Lary Holmen.)  The information doesn't seem to be particularly helpful to approaching cars unless in Minnesota the oncoming U-turn traffic has the right of way.


Wonder if it's near Lake Woebegone.  You know...where all the women are strong, all the men are goodlooking, and all the children are above average.  And speaking of Garrison Keillor; one of his quotes is so appropriate for this election year.  It seems the mantra of some:
Sometimes you have to look reality in the eye and deny it.

Ha! Excellent quote. Confusing road sign.

Another confusing sign for sure, Carolyn... I have another blog friend who posts bunches of these kinds of things on occasion --and it makes one wonder what kind of people we have here in our country sometimes... The lack of intelligence is evident!!!!

Recently someone held up a sign of our Vice President --and asked people who it was. Most didn't know ---but they knew who someone like Justin Beaver was.... HELLO!!!
Hugs,
Betsy

We can tolerate illusion, but not confusion.

Love the quote and the sign. I'm thankful for my DVR that lets me record my favorite programs and fast forward through the political ads.

I'm glad they have silly signs up north as well as down here.

LOL! I guess that means that saying "up yours" is banned?

Your sign awareness of "dumb," has created a new awareness in how I look at signs -- rather fun to critique them as I go through my day.-- barbara

Love that Garrison Keillor quote.

I'm visiting in San Diego, the only city in the US that deliberately engineered its roads and accesses to require U-turns. Hope I make it home!

I'm with P.S.--sign is upside down.

Thanks for your comments, everyone.

PS and Donna - I first thought it might be upside down too. But the slash mark is not reversed.
