On a freeway this could get nuts in a hurry. Hate to see baby ducklings get slaughtered, but on a freeway ? Like you said, what the fuck is mama thinking ?

They need a sign like this, but for ducks. [img]pweb.netcom.com/~mattja/pics/eb_sr905.jpg[/img]

It's east bound 905 at the Picador Blvd. exit, down there between I5 and I805. South San Diego area. But I've seen that sign all over San Diego County, as far north as Carlsbad, if not further. Now, who could accuse the US of not being neighborly? BTW, for you people not from California, it's a sign warning motorists to be on the lookout for families of illegal aliens running across the freeway in the middle of the night. Many have died that way.

I've seen a couple duck X-ing signs. That other sign is pretty funny though. Think I'll put a cow catcher on my car.

Around 5am one morning on a semi-busy freeway, I swerved "over" a cat that was on it's back with feet kicking back and forth. The cat's head was facing oncoming traffic and you could see the glow in the eyes. I didn't hit the cat because the Mountaineer cleared it, but the next car that came by would have turned it into minced meat pie filling.

Ok, are there any other border states that have these ridiculous signs? Obviously put up at taxpayer expense.

The two saddest animal sights I've ever seen include one similar to yours: 1)In Dallas, there is a road with two ponds on either side. A mother duck attempted to cross but one of the chicks was killed. The mother duck just kept leading her chicks back and forth in the street by the dead chick because she didn't want to leave it. Heavy traffic. 2) On a 105 degree day in Texas, I saw a kitten in the middle of the blistering service road that had been run over across the back and tail section. The kitten was stuck to the half melted road tar meowing it's head off. Just sad.

Alright then... One time on my way to work, I clipped a Tom Daschle with my car. It was just like an explosion of Tom Daschle feathers in my rear view mirror. Yeah, I like this "substitute a liberal in a story about animal tragedy" stuff... the_reject

That's all well and good, but how are you going to get the ducks to read it?

They are kidding, right? Pedestrians aren't supposed to be on a limited access road. Is this saying if you hit a pedestrian on an expressway, you are at fault? Hasn't this thing with ILLEGAL immigrants gone too far? Why are so many people concerned with their well being? They are ILLEGAL, after all.

Less than a month after getting my new truck, I hit a bill clinton...not a bad sized one...10 points. Anyway, I hit the bill clinton in his hind quarters and he spun around and wound up hitting the side of my truck causing damage to both the front and driver's side. The worst part was old bill suffered on the side of the road until a Sheriff's Deputy came to fill out the accident report and put bill clinton out of his misery.

A few weeks ago I was driving and as I crested a hill in a wooded area, I noticed a huge branch down blocking most of the road on the left and a good sized Diane Fienstein creeping along the right side of the road. I was moving too fast to stop and had no choice but to hit her. When the car rolled over her, you could hear her hard shell crack under the weight of the vehicle as it squished the life out of her...

Now thats funny! There is a town in Ok.that houses mental patients. There are signs on the hiway that says "Caution Hichhikers may be escaping inmates". I saw that one had been "revised" to read " Caution hichhikers may be escaping taxpayers" Sorry this is an inside joke in Oklahoma...

I was buzzing up to the Flagstaff area a few months ago when one of those John McCains flew right out in front of me (I'd heard he was an aviator) and I nailed him while doing 80MPH. Feathers flew all over the place, kinda like when you hit a dove. Love the way they "explode" when you nail them. (NO, I'm not some sick, twisted S.O.B., but the doves here in AZ seem to like to play "chicken" with the cars on the highway. I think they like to ride the updraft off a fast moving vehicle. Sometimes, they misjudge it)

I think people were concerned about having a human hood ornament, which, you know, can dent the Buick and all. Naw, they just want people to be on the lookout for our downtrodden brothers and sisters from south of the border.

What you chose to name your pic is just as funny as the pic itself.

deadeye47....just wanted to let you know that a former Oklahoman appreciated your joke. They have those signs around the prisons, too. Always made me wonder about the security of those prisons. I mean, if the escape rate is so high that they have to post signs on the highway about escapees..... [;)]

Once I was heading down the 5 freeway heading home after working grave shift in Fullerton. Down in Santa Ana I came around a curve at about 95+ in my VW GTI and saw a freshly splattered black and tan Schumer laying in my lane. I hit the thing, nearly going airborne. After getting home, I looked for damage under the car and found it coated with blood and Schumer fur. Gross...
