The Government, They're Back

After the recent winter blizzards, all the highway signs were covered with snow, making them impossible to read.

One state decided to raise all the road signs twelve inches at a cost of six million dollars.

A reporter was interviewing citizens to get their reactions to this new taxpayer burden.

“That’s an outrageous price!” said a local farmer, “but I guess we’re lucky the state handled it instead of the federal government.”

“Why’s that?” asked the newsman.

The farmer commented wisely, “Because knowing the federal government, instead of raising the signs, they’d have decided to lower the highways.”
