09:44 am - Cake or death?

Previous Entry Share Flag Next Entry

So, we were driving up 405N the other day, in LA, and we both noticed simultaneously a sign someone had attached to a (pedestrian?) overpass. It read:

"The war is a lie."

We both immediately cracked up laughing.

If it had said "war is a lie" or "war is lie" or "the war is lies" or something, it wouldn't have been funny, but because it was precisely a line from Portal but with 'cake' replaced with 'war', it was exceedingly funny.

It made me want to put a sign on the next overpass that said, "War is cake."

I'm sure it was not intentional, and I don't mean to belittle the sentiment of their message. It just stuck a chord other than the one they intended.

There's one in Marin, southbound 101 somewhere between Novato and the Golden Gate Bridge. I thought the exact same thing when I saw it.

Congrats btw!!
