Richard Ankrom and the Sign That Wasn't


So the story goes like this: Richard Ankrom got fed up with the confusion on a freeway in Los Angeles. To improve said clarity, he sewed an official uniform and melded an Interstate 5 sign to affix to the preexisting sign. It stayed that way for a decade. The hilarious part? People started calling it art, even getting a review in the LA Times.
The story is better told here.
