This is a hilariously funny sign. It is amazing how the real message can hardly even be seen.

It's a funny sign that shows how easily relevant information can be covered up by writting irrelevant information in a larger format. Makes me think of all the fine print that exists with credit cards and bank accounts.

Definitely. And have you driven up State Road 135 to Indy? On the edge of town there's a big red overhead traffic sign that says "USE THIS LANE", but when you read further, in slightly smaller print, it says, 'between such and such hours, such and such days of the week', and then in much smaller print it says "Stay off at all other times." Really! So, basically, the biggest, boldest message, if you follow it without reading further, will result in you driving the wrong way down the oncoming traffic lane! Great signage. (NOT)

Oh yeah, and then there's the Airport Expwy sign, very clearly marked on 465 headed North, but it takes you *away* from the airport. It's the next exit you actually want, if you're trying to get to the airport. Somebody has an evil sense of humor (or would think this "sharp edges" sign is actually a good idea).
