handy signs

cartoon like arms and hands on street signs

I think street signs should have poseable arms with hands stuck to them, about 1/3 of the way down from face of the sign. The arms should have some sort of rubber coating with white gloves on the ends, with the structure of the arms made out of bendable wire. This would give the arms a nice cartoon like look. (like those early Mickey Mouse cartoons where his arms bend like elbowless rubber hoses)

Anyone could walk up to a stop sign and pose the arms and hands any way they like. Of course many would end up displaying a one or two finger salute (depending on where you live), but that would get boring after a while, and maybe some more interesting poses would start occuring, like the sign scratching it's "head".

A stop sign holding a sign saying "Garage sale 3rd house down on the left", or "Don't forget to Vote"

       The sign at the end of LA Story finally gets to direct! Bun.

       Also good for those days when you are walking along alone in the city and just.. you know.. really need a hug.   

       Or when the cute girl is standing with you by the sign and she suddenly jumps and turns around with that pissed off expression... So you can point and say "the sign did it"   

       Or for the beggar who sits under the sign so he doesn't have to keep lifting that cup.   

       Or to distrubute a handfull of flowers... for no particular reason.

       what are prosonants?
beanangel, Jan 10 2018

       Prosonants are things that sound in favour of or on behalf of something or someone. At least, they would be if they were a thing.   

       Consonants are things that sound together with something. Ignoring certain borderline cases, consonants can hardly sound at all unless they have an accompanying vowel or two to breathe life into them.   

       The "con" in "consonant" is not short for "contra", unlike the "con" in "pro and con", which is.
