Human Signs Revisited

Human Signs Revisited

One of my first posts here on SaFII (Stick a Fork In It) was about Subway sign twirlers I saw on Grand.  Now there comes news that at least one city (Huntington Beach) is doing something about it.

Me, I don't really have a problem with human signs.  I find them rather funny, actually.  Especially the sign twirlers who aren't particularly lively, who just stand there motionless, having an existential moment.

But most of all, it reminds me of a classic clip from Flight of the Conchords, where Bret gets a job as a human sign. He meets a girl who inspired him to make this revelation:

"She's so flippin' hot, she's like a curry."

Here's the video clip.
