Frivolous Friday... Death by...!!!

"Hello! Thanks for calling, please choose option one to die of worry, option two if you'd like Satan to lend a hand, and option 3 if..."

In all seriousness though, I must admit to having had a pretty rough day today. I was worrying about things that I have no control over, and as I searched for 'worthy' road signs for Frivolous Friday that would perk me up (boy it came around pretty quickly this week), I came across these two signs that sent chills down my spine, albeit in different ways. Check them out for yourself and see what I mean.
It's amazing how the absence of a punctuation mark or a word out of place can change the entire meaning and intent of an innocuous road sign. No doubt Church of The Cross meant well as they thought about lending a hand to their community. Suddenly, all of their good intentions were out the window because of one dyslexic 'sign-putter-upper'. How would you like to be the lead pastor having to explain to elderly Mrs. Lambert that you weren't in anyway suggesting that you have designs on her pension fund as you slowly try to "kill" her.

And if worries and the church don't do the job, let's just hand it over to the professionals shall we?! Let's just let Satan's Kingdom do the job, afterall, they've been in the business for a few thousand years already. Hmmm, now that I think about it, I wonder if Church of The Cross actually did mean that sign literally. To watch some churches, it wouldn't take much convincing to believe that they actually are in the 'people killing' business. Have a frivolous weekend.
