Only in Newfoundland...

A reader sent this to me today, and it cracked me up.

I sometimes think that the moose outnumber people in Newfoundland, and there are about half as many moose warning signs. Most of them are just black on yellow silhouette moose on your typical road sign, or the large scale moose like figures on sticks lining the edge of the TCH. However, the Gros Morne National Park has refined the moose warning sign by making it perfectly clear to motorists the destruction these massive animals can cause. Take care on the roads b'ye, if the weather doesn't get ya, the moose might.

Check this out... I've checked it occasionally, and it almost ALWAYS works.

Some of these signs have a distance added to them. You see a moose silhouette and under it you see "next 13 kms". Well, almost invariably, 13 kms down the road you see another sign "next 6 km". The six kms down the road "next 8 kms"...
