Seeing signs of Zoobomb

Posted by on April 4th, 2007 at 7:37 am

Have you seen those cool new wayfinding signs all over downtown Portland? I’ve seen them at various landmarks around the city, but I have to admit I was surprised to see this one…

OK, so I’m a few days late with an April Fools joke. I just couldn’t resist.

NOTE: At BikePortland, we love your comments. We love them so much that we devote many hours every week to read them and make sure they are productive, inclusive, and supportive. That doesn't mean you can't disagree with someone. It means you must do it with tact and respect. If you see an inconsiderate or inappropriate comment, please contact us and we'll take a look at it right away. Thank you — Jonathan and Michael

    This was my favorite “bikey” April Fools gag. The sad thing is, I know people who would actually do this and insist it is the only correct way to do it:

    Soon we will have our own one-of-a-kind custom rack with descriptive plaque anyway!

    And by soon, I mean as soon as we hear back from the city, since we submitted our proposals and followed their requirements way back in december….
