Last Call- Two Syllables, Sounds Like Edition


Back in the day, a shaving cream company used a clever marketing gimmick to sell their product- a series of roadside signs that told a little story in rhyme, always ending with the brand name as coda- Burma Shave.

The government of South Australia’s Motor Accident Commission seems to have taken that concept to heart, offering up a similarly amusing road sign advocating safe driving, albeit using a modestly implied crudity that Burma Shave likely never would have considered.

    All road signs should be refuses and pictograms. Those beer bottle caps never steered me wrong.

      Excuse me, good sir. Mickey's isn't beer, rather Fine Malt Liquor.

        Right you are, though I'm partial to Little Kings in a 40. I was thinking more of the fine potables of Falstaff Brewing.

          It was Haffenreffer's had them back in Boston. Still do as far as I know.

    I hope there are more with, say, a hydraulic jack and a donkey, or a rooster and a lollipop.

    I first read that as simply, "Don't Drive Like A W."

    Well, at least now I know what the 'W' stands for.
