I bet Northpoint wished it could be this simple

I saw this on a road trip through Texas quite some time back.

Four dishes

Now, I like the kind of enthusiasm that gets people to nail four display-only satellite dishes to a board next to a highway. Really, I do. But, a small part of me is inclined to point out that even if they were wired up, only half of them could ever possibly work.

The other half are pointing the wrong direction.

Perhaps this is the equivalent of misspelling a sign on purpose, putting the word "LAUNDRY" upside down, or saying you're having a "SALE SALE". If it gets you to slow down and consume it instead of blowing right by, then they may have accomplished something.

(In case the title of this post didn't mean anything to you, enjoy some context.)
