Sunday is the place to come for weekly laughs. The rules are simple, just have fun.
This is a great opportunity to get to know other bloggers and have a laugh or two in the process. Here is how it works: Laugh and Link Up!
The Traffic Sign:
Farmer John lived on a quiet rural highway. But, as time went by, the traffic slowly built up at an alarming rate. The traffic was so heavy and so fast that his chickens were being run over at a rate of three to six a day.
So one day Farmer John called the sheriff’s office and said, “You’ve got to do something about all of these people driving so fast and killing all of my chickens.”
“What do you want me to do?” asked the sheriff.
“I don’t care, just do something about those crazy drivers!”
So the next day he had the county workers go out and erected a sign that said:
SLOW: SCHOOL CROSSING
Three days later Farmer John called the sheriff and said, “You’ve got to do something about these drivers. The ‘school crossing’ sign seems to make them go even faster.”
So, again, the sheriff sends out the county workers and they put up a new sign:
SLOW: CHILDREN AT PLAY
That really made the drivers speed up even faster. So Farmer John called and called and called every day for three weeks.
Finally, he asked the sheriff, “Your signs are doing no good. Can I put up my own sign?”
The sheriff told him, “Sure thing, put up your own sign.” He was going to let the Farmer John do just about anything in order to get him to stop calling everyday to complain.
The sheriff got no more calls from Farmer John.
Three weeks later, curiosity go the best of the sheriff and he decided to give Farmer John a call. “How’s the ! problem with those drivers? Did you put up your sign?”
“Oh, I sure did. And not one chicken has been killed since then. I’ve got to go. I’m very busy.” He hung up the phone.
The sheriff was really curious now and he thought to himself, “I’d better go out there and take a look at that sign… It might be something that WE could use to slow down drivers…”
So the sheriff drove out to Farmer John’s house, and his jaw dropped the moment he saw the sign. It was spray-painted on a sheet of wood:
Go slow and watch out for chicks!!

Strange how the authorities never get anything right LOL
Have a signagetastic day Sandee :-h
Yep, you've got to use what works. 🙂
Hi Sandee, that is a really smart farmer. Real genius too.
Very smart farmer indeed Nancy. 🙂
Ha!!! Reminds me of a recorded phone call to the traffic department somewhere in Canada. They had erected a Deer Crossing sign on a busy raod where the caller lived. The Lady rang to tell them that it was stupid to put a Deer Crossing on such a busy road. She wanted them to move the Deer Crossing signs to a nearby much quieter road so that the Deer could cross safely. The guy tried to explain many times that the signs were to warn drivers of Deer on the road not to instruct the Deer to cross there but the poor woman just didn't get it.
I saw that video. What a stupid woman indeed. 🙂
Yep, that sign would do it, lolol
Well, it would at least slow down the guys. 🙂
Excellent sign. Even though they have slowed down I wonder if this could increase the accident rate. You know with people slowing down and trying to sneak a peek and all
I'm sure there were more accidents. Stand to reason. 🙂
Sandee Can you please delete my Linky link #4. I've still got 3 1/2 years hosting left for Atomic Underpants so decided to keep it all there in one place. Thanks & have a great week
Okay Tony, I've deleted that link. We'll stick with Atomic Underpants. 🙂
Heeheehee! Brilliant! Happy Silly Sunday!
Brilliant indeed. You have a happy Silly Sunday too. 🙂
Farmer John had better be careful. He might get some drunk get out of his car and want to join the nude chicks. Ha,ha,ha.
Have a safe Sunday Sandee. I hope that those fires are away from you , Zane & Little Bit.See ya.
Well, if that happens that drunk will be very disappointed.
No fires in our area Paul so all is okay here. 🙂
Hahahaaa. Good one on a Sunday morning.
Have a great day!
Yes it is. Happy Sunday. 🙂
hahah resourceful and smart farmer! Good one! Have a cool day!
He's resourceful and smart indeed. 🙂
That was a good one. Sure made me laugh out loud. Great sign. Sandee, you and Zane and Little Bit have a great day.
I loved this one too Marg. You and your babies have a great day as well. 🙂
Ah, the art of Bullshit. Farmer John should run for President.
Yep, he's missed his calling indeed Tim. 🙂
The sign didn't lie unless the chickens wore clothes.
Nope the sign is accurate indeed. 🙂
Slowed me right down. c-)
I knew it would Odie. I can always depend on you. 🙂
I laughed out loud at these, Sandee! That sign sure did it! LOL! Thanks so much for the laughs, and I really appreciate your kindness in adding my blog link to your post today! 🙂
You have a fun blog Linda, and it's my pleasure to link you. 🙂
Thank you so much, Sandee! Oh, and if I just saw a new look to your blog, I really like it! 🙂 It was there but I no longer see it, so if you were trying it out, it looks fantastic!
I'm still messing with it. It's so girly. I'll see if I can handle it. 🙂
Simply brilliant! Hahaha. Creative thinking. We need more of that.
Have a fabulous day. Scritches to LB. big hugs, honey…
You have to outsmart them and this guy did just that. 🙂
I thought so too Michelle. 🙂
That wood work.
And I'm sure it did too. 🙂
That would work!!!! Farmers do like to look out for their chickens. Many an old Chicken Hawk found that out while circling my grandfathers farm!
Farmers are a smart sort aren't they. Yes they are and they have to be. 🙂
Works for me!!!! :)) 😀 D-) I like the new look!
Thanks Mike, I decided to go all out girly. 🙂
Not what I expected, great punchline, although it is a pretty sad state of the world that people would slow down for a chance to see the nudists, but not to save the kids.
Love your new look 🙂
Yes it is sad isn't it. The world is pretty sad for the most part. 🙂
What a clever farmer 🙂
I thought so too cube. Whatever works and that worked. 🙂
That would work.
It did work Binky. 🙂
hahahaha!! I'm sure every driver slowed down 🙂 Smart farmer!
Very smart farmer Rocks. I agree. 🙂
