Most Stolen Town Signs

Field review by the editors.

Intercourse, Pennsylvania

Generations of feeble jokesters have coveted and carted away the town limits signs of Intercourse, Pennsylvania. The fact that Intercourse is here, in zipperless Amish country, makes it funnier, we guess. And you're only a buggy ride away from ribald kneeslapping in Blue Ball, Bird in Hand, Virginville...

The locals got the joke, producing a postcard of the Intercourse sign, with an Amish buggy airbrushed in the background, reprinted for many decades. Laugh, world, at our funny town name!

The sign thefts are another matter. We'd heard the town no longer posted a sign, but we found them on both east and west approaches. The mounting post is a solid metal, anchored in concrete; the JCT 772 sign looks flimsy and vulnerable in contrast.

Wait! Junction 772! Hahahahahah!
