Someone changed this road sign in the U.P. and they deserve an award


Motorists in Marquette County got quite the surprise yesterday when traveling down US-41.

A random person (who honestly deserves an award for this level of fuckery) tampered with a digital construction sign and made it read "SEND NUDES PLZ" in all caps and it's glorious.

Police in Marquette said they changed the hilarious sign soon after they found out about it, and say that if the perpetrator was caught they could be charged with tampering and malicious destruction on property.

While we have seen other scammers place suspicious "SEND NUDES PLZ," this sign is so extra that we can't get over it. This person is a hero, and we love them for that.
