An older gentleman went before the township counsel. As he cleared his throat, he began to speak, “I would like the members of the counsel to consider removing the deer crossing sign on Old Creek Road next to my property.”
One of the counsel members remarked, “Well if I’m not mistaken, there is a significant deer population in that area.”
“I’m not arguing that,” replied the man. “I just want the sign removed.”
“But there have been several deer strikes on that road in the past year…” a third counsel member began.
“That’s what I’m trying to tell you,” injected the old man. “Move the signs someplace else, because if the deer keep crossing there, they will keep getting run over!”
