Now this, readers . . . this is a great prank. Someone hacked an electronic highway sign in Austin, Texas, posting a variety of warnings to drivers. The sign, standing about half a mile from the University of Texas, was changed to display notices like “Caution! Zombies ahead!!!” and “Run for cold climates”. According to the report from NBC-Dallas/Fort Worth, some drivers found the bit funny (and why wouldn’t they?), while the Department of Transportation was very . . . not amused.
This bit reminded me of GenCon’s annual Zombie Walk, which last year spilled into the Circle Center Mall in downtown Indianapolis. Imagine if you were a shopper, and this happened . . .
Man, that’s not right.
