This is just too typical, funny and sad all at the same time.
OAK LAWN, Ill. (AP) — Oak Lawn has removed comical remarks in octagonal shapes it placed under stop signs in an effort to get motorists to obey the law.
Mayor Dave Heilmann says the Illinois Department of Transporation determined the signs violated the federal Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices. He says had Oak Lawn not removed the signs, the city could have lost federally funded projects.

Notice how the state trumped the city because of federal rules.
We need a bureaucratic set of lyrics to go to the tune of “The hip bone’s connected to the thigh bone.”
