Of course, that's just what City Hall would say if it were taken over by zombies.
Imagine if that sign were on Morrissey Boulevard: WICKED HIGH ZOMBIES.
This needs to happen more often. If the DPW/MassDOT/whoever would lock the sign and/or put a password on the computer, this wouldn't happen. But, I guess that's asking too much.
it's usually the project contractor who provides these signs, not MassDOT or the city/town.
And the problem is not lack of a password on the sign's computer, it's the fact that the contractor didn't bother to change the default password.
No, I don't condone sign hacking like this. But at least the message was funny and not offensive to anyone, unlike the "GOD HATES GAYS" hack that appeared on a message board in Utah recently.
This happened in the Midwest years ago, and pictures of it have been circulating the internet since. As a result, everyone who figures out how to hack a road sign makes a zombie joke, instead of thinking of something unique, creative, and funny.
