Maui Street Signs - Sticker Graffiti

Sometimes I like to take pictures of goofy things, like these various street signs around Paia and Haiku on Maui. 

People seem to have a lot of time on their hands, and enjoy putting stickers on things. 

I have to admit it makes for a laugh once in a while.

Who are these people?  Where do they get those stickers?

I recognize some of them coming from the surfing industry.... we have a lot of surf punks in Paia.

 

 

 

 

 

 All eyes seem to be on this one sign.

Stop and smell the roses indeed!

Do you get this kind of thing in your neighborhood?  Or is this a Paia thing?  I don't get out much, so maybe you can enlighten me.

Thanks for STOPping by.

I was wondering.  Do you have problems with them putting stickers on your real estate signs?

Deborah - I guess the bullet holes are everywhere then.

Randy - that's a good one!  I haven't ever noticed real estate signs with stickers on them.  But if you put your sign on country property (roadsides) you will probably never see it again after about a week.

Georgina, don't see that type of graffiti in Sacramento but sure did in Maui and Paia while I was there. It actually is pretty funny when you actually stop and read some of the stuff they place on signs.

Thank you very much for sharing, I haven't been to Maui in many years and don't see that kind of stuff on Oahu...I am sure it will spread eventually.

Gena - I can't help but laugh at some of them.

Shane - I'm surprised you don't get it over there too... maybe up on the north shore?

I am going to propose a new law. The right to shoot taggers on sight or hang'em high.

Just dropped in to see what condition my post was in.  I think it's time for a little editing.
