During a terrible storm, most of the highway signs became covered with snow. After conducting an extensive study, the state decided to raise all the affected signs an additional 36 inches at a cost of six million dollars.
A TV news channel decided to interview some of their local residents to gage the public sentiment.
“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 is that?” asked the reporter.
“Because knowing the federal government, they woulda decided to lower the highways!”
