    Default Time To Be Creative! Burma Shave Signs

    Hey forum people. The PAL Ambassadors have been making Burma Shave signs for future block party events. What we found at last week's Wine, Cheese and Poetry party was that it was a lot of fun and also therapeutic. What would you like to say to drivers? Make a funny poem/rhyme/jingle about it. Many we can't use because of their content. Honestly, those are some of the funniest ones.

    If you have a little time, come up with one or two! Let your mind go and have fun with this. I'll share some examples.

    If you don't know what a Burma Shave Sign is, the image at the top is one from Wikipedia. Here's there article on them.

    Keep in mind that the audience is drivers. The subject is safe streets and being Predictable, Alert and Lawful.

    Thanks!

    I don't care if you're
    A car or a trucker
    Give me 3 feet when you pass me
    You stupid.....

    That's as far as I got. I'll think of a rhyme eventually and get back to you.

    Bwahahahaha! PERFECT! "Pucker" doesn't really make sense though.

    Fun use of a work break; I'm sure more will pop into my head as the day goes on. Here's what I have made so far (I think some of these would work on trails, too):

    Sharing spaces
    Safer places
    Happy faces

    -------------------

    Look both ways
    Live more days

    -------------------

    P's and Q's
    Make nicer U's

    -------------------

    A good fellow
    Slows on yellow

    -------------------

    Look before
    Right on red
    So no one
    Ends up dead

    -------------------

    Used a light
    Seen at night

    -------------------

    Try a bell
    before a yell

    -------------------

    When he yells
    His breath smells

    --------------------

    If you want
    To give a shout
    Count to 10
    Try it out

    Get Home Safe
    Just like you
