“It bothers me when I see tax money wasted on signs telling deer where to cross the road”

"Deer crossing” signs are to inform drivers about deer, not to inform deer where to cross the road. “And it (government—ed.) has gone a step further and informed the deer where to cross the road” is a joke that was posted in the North Adams (MA) Transcript on September 9, 1952.

“@bulls_horns: It pissed me off when I see tax money wasted on signs telling deer where to cross the road” was posted on Twitter on June 8, 2011. “It bothers me when I see tax money wasted on signs telling deer where to cross the road.
