How would you react if you saw this sign on the highway? I'm betting you'd turn around, and go back where you came from.

(Even if you're not from North Carolina, you're welcome to stay. We'll be back to our regular output of posts about people who fire explosives from inappropriate bodily orifices on Wednesday.)
