“I saw a sign that said ‘Slow Deer Crossing.’ Why don’t the deer just run faster?”

A “SLOW—Deer Crossing” sign shouldn’t be read as “slow deer crossing,” but there are jokes. A Nancy comic strip on May 3, 1967, showed a fast deer sprinting in front of a “Slow Deer Crossing” sign. “He sure didn’t look slow to me,” Nancy said.

“I saw a sign that said ‘slow deer crossing’. Why don’t the deer just run faster?” was posted on Twitter by daniel on March 3, 2016. “While I was driving down the road today I saw a sign that read SLOW DEER and I thought to myself, well they should be easy to avoid” was posted on Reddit—Oneliners on March 30, 2019.

(Nancy sees a deer sprint by a “SLOW DEER CROSSING” sign,—ed.)
NANCY: HE SURE DIDN’T LOOK SLOW TO ME.

Whenever I see the “slow deer crossing” sign, I imagine some big, derpy-ass deer in the middle of the road.

What the poorly worded sign intended to say was STUPID DEER they’ll jump right out in front of you.
