Burma Shave signs.

Postby Big Muddy rancher » Wed Feb 16, 2005 8:55 pm

I don't really remember the original Burma shave signs but Saw some down by Jordan MT. a few years ago so we put 2 sets up on the fence going past our place.
HARDLY A DRIVER /IS NOW ALIVE / WHO PASSED ON HILLS /AT 75 / BURMA SHAVE


SAID COWBOY RED /WHO'S BALD / ON TOP /WISH I COULD /ROTATE THE CROP / BURMA SHAVE

We had a few comments on the signs and a couple that missed our turn because of them. :cowboy:

As a kid when we went anywhere there were Burma Shave signs along the main roads.As I got older one of my favorites was near a school.
It went;WHEN IN THIS ZONE HEED OUR INSTRUCTIONS HELP US SAVE OUR TAX DEDUCTIONS.
