It doesn't really make sense, yet I always think things like this are funny because they're usually not actually funny at all, and not that clever, but there's a certain novelty in the concept of using the space where your business is expected to advertise to instead make some sort of political or ethical statement. Even if it's kind of silly and pointless. The guy who runs the self storage place in West Mifflin on Homestead-Duquesne Road has also historically been notable for such things. Here's to more politically-motivated fun on our roadside signs.
