Eye Sores

Has anyone else noticed those wire and cardboard signs on random street corner? 
They became popular a couple of years ago.
I've thought about this for a while now but at some point shouldn't they be considered "liter". Somebody puts the up, but they never take them down.  They get bent and weather beaten.

Do you want to refinance your home?  Do you want to rent to own?  Do you wanna work from home and make $1000/week?  Just last week when it was 40*, the sun was shining and the snow was melting, I saw a sign for "Sprinkler Blow Out, Call -----".  Pretty sure that time has come and gone.  Then I saw one for "Ice Dam Removal".  Um...snow had been off of everyone's roof for about 2 weeks.  (But since our last snow fall, it's back.)  And I saw one that was completely blank.  I can only suspect it had faded from the sun.

Sometimes I'll still see a campaign sign on the side of the road.  It's 2011 and not an election year.
And don't get me started about the Parade of Homes.  I pass two new developments on my way to and from work and they are all over the place. They'll be up for months after the Parade of Homes ends next weekend.

Spring's around the corner.  Time for a Street Corner Spring Cleaning.
