Burma Shave signs by the side of the road

I may have mentioned these earlier with a few examples, but here are more of them. Do you remember seeing these? I don’t think they’re still around. These are from the book,”The Verse by the side of the road,” by Frank Rowesome, Jr. which had 600 of these rhymes in it. The last sign always read “Burma Shave.” Here a a few of the best.

HARDLY A DRIVER
IS STILL ALIVE
WHO PASSED ON HILLS
AT 75

AT CROSSROADS
DON’T JUST
TRUST TO LUCK
THE OTHER CAR
MAY BE A TRUCK

BIG MISTAKE
MANY MAKE
RELY ON HORN
INSTEAD OF BRAKE.

DROVE TOO LONG
DRIVER SNOOZING
WHAT HAPPENED NEXT
IS NOT AMUSING
