Burma Shave!

Are you old enough to remember these roadside messages?

For those of you who never saw the Burma Shave signs, a quick lesson. Before Interstates, when everyone drove the old 2 lane roads cross country, Burma Shave signs would be posted all over the countryside in farmer's fields.

They were small red signs with white letters. Five signs, about 100 feet apart, each containing 1 line of a 4 line Couplet...and the obligatory 5th sign identifying Burma Shave.
