Ha! Much nicer than what the kids in my neighborhood did...my stop sign says "I love Satin"...I'm thinking they meant Satan but who am I to judge if they like shiny fabrics?

Teehee. If I was drinking fizzy drink it would be coming out of my nose right now.

On the subject of satin (the fabric, not the horned-one); I was given a set of satin sheets and pillowcases for Xmas, and every time I use both of them at the same time I wake up to find my pillows on the floor... What am I doing wrong?

Nothing, that's what happens and that's why you should use regular pillow cases with satin sheets...at least that's what I would do. Oh and when I was little I had satin sheets and satin jammies and I would see if I could jump into bed, slide across and out of bed in one single leap! it was fantastic fun!

the 80's were a scary scary time, I think I'm scarred for life, must be why I love retro...

Hey that's the function of them.. you're not supposed to be alone in there on them... they are slippery and feel sensous. Although my first thought was VELCRO..........

you're lucky - I toss & turn and end up with the top sheet slipping the doonah off me so winter isn't a great time for the satin sheets.

Damn the sign brought back memories of the crew who you and I have talked about, dancing stupidly to that "Hammer time" bit and just about falling off a stage at Rumours back in the 80's *WINCE*

That's one of the more inventive signpost graffiti I've seen. Usually the standard where I live is to take the 'L' out of 'public footpath' signs.

My favourite graffiti on a roadside sign I ever saw was beside the highway that runs near Newcastle airport...
The sign read:
DANGER! LOW FLYING AIRCRAFT

Below, some wag wrote
WATCH YOUR HEAD

WELL...if your stop sign has-to-be defaced!

Some put this sticker on a stop sign in my area (it had a website on it!!! that's how i found it online).

At least it was political (like it or not) and not about shiny fabric fetishes :)
