“A sign on Interstate 255 Tuesday warned motorists that the undead were ahead, causing double takes during the morning rush.” -Elisa Crouch, St. Louis Post Dispatch
Oh yes, this story is worth reading. Picture yourself kinda groggy, heading down the interstate to work on a Tuesday morning. You see one of those annoying electronic highway signs, telling you there’s gonna be more freaking traffic because of some construction. Gah! But wait. Does that say what you think it says? Indeed. “Daily lane closures, due to zombies.” The morning grind just got a little more interesting.
Hackers are generally a menace to society, but this is pretty darn funny. So what do you think- harmless prank or serious infraction? I leave you with some very valid points from commenters on the story.
“This could be the best thing to happen for traffic safety since the orange barrel. No one slows down for “guardrail replacement ahead”… but Zombies? You’ll slow down to look for Zombies!”
“This may be all fun and games now, but what happens when there really is a zombie attack?”
Special thanks to Katie Herring for sending me this story.
