I saw AOD at a friends place, suddenly all their "boom stick" references made sense.

Don`t know what I`d put. Maybe something like "Tourists: Go home now!" or "Speed cameras next 5km".

My boyfriends house is actually on the highway, there`s lots of roadworks there lately....

Anyone else here hate Army of Darkness with a passion?

I love Zug. Wish I understood the inside joke for the first sign without his explaining it.

I might`ve put "Swlaa laa, next left"
That`s my inside joke.
And don`t tell me I`m dumb. Or crazy. Or stupid.
I already know.
(if anyone really wants to know wtf i mean by swlaa laa, post and I`ll put it in a spoiler)

"I WOULD HAVE PUT SOMETHING ALONG THE LINES OF YO* S*C* COC* YO* ST*PID D*MB F*C*!!!
SOMETHING WAY OBSCENE"
thats why you live alone.
and i have you agree with you there teamsonic.
i would put something like "The Scary Door; next left", or in the same idea, "youve read it, you cant un-read it!" but that one is probly too long.

I would have put, "Don`t Panic"...

"If anything make a universal joke or something."
No way... inside jokes are much funnier... I don`t care if you don`t get it, if I think it`s funny, I`ll say/do it...

-Ash only used Clatto Verata Nicto in Army of the Dead as a joke to The Day the Earth stood still. A very nice Sci- Fi movie with a cool rrobot named gort that fries thing with his eyes. But when reprogramming a sign it was kinda stupied to do something most people in the world are too stupied to get. Putting down all your base though is equally stupied. If anything make a universal joke or something. I would`ve done " Workers should pay more attention to their jobs"-

You don`t have to be `too stupied` to not understand something from a movie if you don`t understand it because you never saw it. and it`s spelled `stupid`.

"The mystical phrase Ash is supposed to speak when he takes the Necronomicon, "Clatto Verata Nicto" (As it is in the script) is a reference to the classic science fiction film The Day the Earth Stood Still. In the film, the phrase "Klaatu barada nikto" is used to cancel the robot Gort`s attack."

Had that been on an interstate or freeway, I would have put "ROAD ENDS - .5 MILES." on the first sign.

And on the second - "HANG ON FOR THE RIDE!"

On the first roadsign, something weird like "Klaatu Baraba Nikto" is ok, but than on the second, i`ll put something like "Smile, you`re on candid camera"

"Klaatu Baraba Nikto" is also what he had to say when he took the Book of the Dead in Army of Darkness, right? Cause that`s what I thought before I read the paragraph underneath the picutre.

That guy sounds like the kind of person who does something very pathetic and thinks he`s a comedic genius for it.

What a wasted opportunity to put something genuinely funny up on those signs.

B-Hazard, I agree with you. That definitely would have been more humorous...and would have freaked someone who watches way too many horror movies such as myself. I could only imagine reading that flashing sign going home from work at night:/

In jokes like "Klaatu Barada Nikto" are the best. The few who get them will laugh harder than the people who would get a more widely known joke. For example, putting in "All your base" would be just lame... but years ago, when it was a little injoke between the truely |337 of the `net, it woulda been hilarious.

P.S. STOP TAKING OUR GEEK JOKES AND MAKING THEM WIDELY KNOWN! PLEASE! *sigh* I remember when |337 5p34|< was actually |337.
