Someone posted one a few weks ago that was a US 'city welcome' sign that had population and elevation figures, then underneath both figures totalled. That was totally stupid.

Not really funny but tonight I was at leaving a mall in Richmond (My belt fell apart when I was going through airport security, so I needed to buy a new one before my meeting tomorrow). As I was leaving I saw a traffic light. Hanging next to the signal head (you know the red/yellow/green part) was a sign with an arrow pointing down.

When I was a teenager in high school, some buddies and me stole a sign from a street in Nichols Hills, OK called "Buttram" Don't have the pics, but you can google earth it. It's where the Buttram Mansion is located. It's pronounced, But-Rum, but funny nevertheless.

Regarding the village in Upper Austria, there is an even better sign.

I suspect the tree was there before the road, or before the road was widened. The tree has to be 30-50 years old or older when the picture was taken.

It looks like one of those easement deals where they can only widen the road in one direction for part and the other way for the rest.

Also, there is plenty ground around that tree for ground water - the pavement isn't hurting it - but I'm sure some careless or drunk drivers will get rid of it in a few years.
