Burma Shave Slogans

These signs once appeared alongside the highway, each sign containing one sentence of a longer slogan. So you would drive by and the kids would all read aloud each of the signs. (And those kids are now in their '60s.)

Anyway, some of these can be pretty fun, though it's best to pause between each line and imagine yourself rumbling down an old 2-lane road, top down on the Chevy convertible, watching America roll by...
