Roadside signs provide great laughter when you spot them.
And these roadside puns are fun.
Fun to look at and have a chuckle.
But some are better than others.
And one man is perfect with them.
His name is Vince Rozmiarek.
He lives in Indian Hills, Colorado.
It is a small community of 1,280 people.
Vince is a volunteer at Indian Hills community centre.
He made his first sign five years ago.
“They had a little, tiny sign and asked me to build a bigger one” Rozmiarek says.
So he did.
So he kept it straight for a while – posting the usual wedding, birthday and veteran events the community center hosts.
But that all changed on April Fools day.
Rozmiarek decides to have some fun.
He posts a sign that says:
“Indian Hills annexed by Morrison slow down.”
It was an April Fools prank.
“I put up a sign that really stirred up the area,” he says.
“We have a heavy police presence in the town of Morrison, which is next to Indian Hills, and they run a ton of speed traps. The sign said ‘Indian Hills annexed by Morrison, slow down.’ Many people believed that prank, and the amount of attention it brought was really surprising.”
But it was the start of a new sign era.
Roadside Signs Provide Great Laughter
Today he puts up a sign with a new pun or joke a couple of times every week.
But that’s not all.
He even creates holiday and event-themed puns on special occasions.
“It is hard to keep coming up with material, but I do try,” he says. Stand out one-liners include “In search of fresh vegetable puns. Lettuce know” and “Tried to grab the fog. I mist.”
The signs are a hit on social media.
The Facebook page has 39,381 likes and 40,929 people follow it.
And it has followers from more than 45 countries.
