Not long after Caltrans posted the unsigned version of this photo of Hwy 3 with a chunk out of it, some wag added the encouraging words to the left. (Any one know who? Was it a local? [UPDATE: Stark Raving Brad made the meme.)

Yesterday, one of the net’s most popular humorists, George Takei re-shared it on his site.

Oh, my!

  • I just laughed at a time I needed to the most.

  • Like the dumpster truck that supposedly nicked a tree and caused it to wreck on briceland road a couple weeks ago. Funny thing though, there is no tree on that corner, there was however a nice set of bumps and a pot hole in the asphalt that just happened to get fixed one day after the wreck?

    You can see part of the pot hole before it got cowpatched.

    • Yep. Like the garbage truck on the Avenue that hit a root. Go look. No root in the road. Obvious track of truck going into ditch. Road closed for a day. Cleanup of 70 gallons of hydrolic fluid. Was there a citation?

      • I arrived just after the accident on my way home. There was indeed a root and it got hit. It was removed very soon after. The driver was lucky the truck didn’t flip. It slid sideways for quite a few feet before smashing into the bank crushing some of the cab.

  • Hahaha he should try living here

  • I saw it on Lovelace’s page before I saw it anywhere else – with the altered sign.

  • i posted original pic on a nascar chat that im on and 2 days later a chat friend posted the one above he got as an email
    sometimes photoshopped pics gets a good laugh
    is that the same george takei of star trek ????? if so , guess he can just beam himself across

  • Our roads are excellent compared to Michigan, the potholes could eat a truck, pieces of overpasses fall off and go through car windshields. The winter snow and ice just kills their roads. They say they don’t have the money to fix them and the citizens didn’t pass a tax hike.

  • That’s mine, I made it a few weeks ago and it’s been making the rounds. I also had an alternate version (see below), but I think this version’s doing just fine. 😊
