Smokey is Dead. Long Live the Bear!

Every morning that I rode my bike to work this summer, I passed this helpful public service announcement billboard:



And every morning I thought, "Yeah..."




"...I'll get right on that."


Thanks Smokey.

Oh, I sincerely needed that. Good chuckle stuff. Today is a not so good one and I need to know that the guvment, in the form of the Forestry service, is protecting you out in the vast forest lands.

Well, there is that one tree, maybe it can drop some acorns or something.

Phiz said...

Ya, careful throwing your match over the side of your bike after you light up!
HAAAAAHAHA

very funny post

Rachel said...

Maybe they could change the sign to "only you can prevent dust storms" Not so dramatic but a bit more rational.

annie said...

That is pretty darn funny. Gosh, I feel sorry for y'all, not having any trees and all.

*sniffle*wipe tear*.....inside that fence? Is that where Bambi's mother is buried?........

Janie said...

Oh, but wait...did you know that one of the largest national oak forests exists in West Texas and Eastern New Mexico?

That's right...it's the shinoak forest. Shinnery to us locals.

So, yeah...you could have a forest fire up there. Course, the ranchers would probably love you for it!

How does that saying go ... "You can't see the forest for the ... tree."

Princess of Everything (and then some) said...

*snickers* Just think how easy it will be if we ever become tree huggers. We will have to take turns!

Baby Gator said...

I have a sense of empowerment!!! I had no idea that only I could prevent forest fires. Geez, what am I doing sitting here at home on the computer???

Oh. Funny.

And do I need to mention how quickly I left Lubbock? God bless you for trying, Rach...

Haa-haa! Love Mindy's comment! You'd think they could put up a sign with pheasants and skunks on it to advise protecting our prairie friends.

Notice I am commenting backwards? I do that sometimes...
