Brain Teaser


I saw this sign attached to an electrical pole in an industrial area near downtown Phoenix and it turned into a bit of a brain teaser for me.  I couldn't figure out what it was supposed to represent.  I've come to the conclusion that someone has created a piece of art out of some old election campaign signs.  The Slow Bunnies sign and the bunny face appear to be cut from the campaign signs of someone who ran a few years ago for Scottsdale city council and I know I saw that "Endorsed by" sign slapped across someone's campaign sign a few years ago too.  I can't say that I get the joke if there is one but I did enjoy the search.

A trip to the top of the world is up on Sharon's Sojourns today.

It has certainly served its purpose, getting people to guess its meaning! Well spotted... and thought out!

It catches the eye and gets you wondering hey Sharon :)

Good use of the old campaign material.

Peter said...

Love it! I like puzzles too.

Strange. You should have a label for 'weird stuff'.

Quite interesting.

Good detective work, Sharon. It makes for a fun sign!

Someone, I think, has a weird sense of humor.

I'd have to go into that building and ask anyone there if they knew what that was all about. It's the reporter in me.

Pat said...

you should tweet Copper Phillips and see if she knows anything about it. She'd probably like to see the picture, at least.

I'm going with someone's idea of art, though the electric power company would not be amused.

Someone went to a lot of trouble to create something which isn't very clear.

I love it.

Mysterious! Maybe it has a practical purpose, too -- are there likely to be bunnies in the road there? Maybe wild rabbits, and the sign-maker is telling people to slow down? I dunno. (And I'm not sure how the endorsement would fit into that interpretation!)
