We’re here to help you! New York City is being forced by the federal government to replace 250,000 perfectly good street signs, at a cost of $27.5 million.

    Hey, if it weren’t for the geniuses at DOT, the city of New York wouldn’t have even known they had such a serious and immediate problem with street sign fonts. It is best that the city use 27.5 million dollars taking care of this vital problem, rather than wasting it on such silly luxuries as the school system or the police and fire departments. Thank Blessed Gaia we have such intelligent, wise, and competent betters looking out for us. Just think of the tragedy that proper street sign fonts will avert.
