This is just an example of a dirty sign.Hey DC-area commuters, help us out! We hear that two of them roadside “Expect delays now until forever due to construction”-type electronical signs were HACKED by HAXXORS, and displayed vulgar words to drivers this morning. (The signs are on the Virginia side of the Key Bridge and on eastbound Hain Bridge Road at the George Washington Memorial Parkway.) Here is the question: What were the naughty words? Because your local Fox News refused to show anything other than the mysterious word “MUDKIPZ!”. [MyFoxDC]

    I hope they warned you of dragons ahead.

    How can I get one of these signs to portray anal sex and display the word “DETOUR”…?

  • LittlePig

    Mudkips. Awesome. Only thing missing would be ‘9000’ above ‘Mudkips’.

    We will never forgive.
    We will never forget.

    (It’s 4chan memes, kids)

  • ManchuCandidate

    Considering it’s Faux, the sign probably said “Single Payer Healthcare.”

    MUDKIPZ?! Oh no, it’s the secret signal! This is a job for . . . Captain Mudkipz!

    [Shouts “MUDKIPZ!”, tears off clothes, leaps to open window, and falls to pavement, accidentally crushing 40-Piece Lug Wrench Set Palin.]

    If these comments become any more annoying, I’m going to put them on traffic signs.

    boring missionary-style ahead! where’s the pizzaz!?

  • Extemporanus

    The reason these signs are so easy to haxxor is because the crews that set them up typically don’t lock control panel door that allows access to the message input device (keyboard) since they always lose the key. The system is supposed to be password protected, but the password is often left as the factory (e.g. government) preset, like “USDT2009” or something.

    So, if any of you unemployed, illiterate, newfags wanna wreak some 8-bit havoc, /b/ my guest.

  • mrpuma2u

    We have signs in chicago that say “speed control hump” which is clearly an allusion to some kinda librul tantricky ferriner type secks. prolly buttsecks.

  • Formerly Preferred

    [re=341964]scotty[/re]: Oh. I was wrong.

  • Min

    MUDKIPZ is, I believe, the Martian word for BUTTSECKS.

  • FormerDCite

    So what? Someone published words that everyone on the roads of Northern Va. are thinking and verbalizing. If only we could have this happen in LA. All our boards tell us is that from the 101/134 split it’s only 25 minutes to downtown. Of course it’s really 45 minutes. Otherwise they post “Amber” alerts, telling us to look out for a certain 1993 Dodge mini van with CA plates. Which usually turns out to be the crappy ex-husband trying to run to Mexico with the kids because of a custody dispute.

  • lawrenceofthedesert

    C’mon, any schmo knows that “mudkipz” is Yiddish for “genital smegma.”

  • sezme

    I can tell you for sure that one of the words was iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii. Oh damn.

    I had no idea the taco situation was so bad in northern VA. Or is fucktaco some kind of Virginian sex act?

  • Caitifty

    Not that I’d ever suggest or condone such a thing, but here’s detailed instructions on how to change the text on these signs. You, know, in case of a zombie emergency or something.

  • Accordion-o-rama

    I think the last line says “BALLSACK”.

    Why? Only MUDKIPZ knows for sure.

  • Guppy06

    [re=342093]qaf[/re]: I thought “fucktaco” was a reference to the metaphorical “pink taco.”

  • donner_froh

    Wonkette’s former fellow serfs on the Gawker plantation, the guys at jalopnik, have been on the leading edge of organized road sign hacks:

  • Lionel Hutz Esq.

    Who’s the greatest mudskipper of them all?
    Who can skip thru the mud with the greatest of ease?
    What kind of wonderful guy?
    Who can crawl like a dog without scraping his knees?
    Who’s got seg-ment-ed eyes?
    It’s Muddy Mud-Skipper!
    It’s Muddy!
    It’s the Muddy!
    Mm-ud Ski-pper show!!

  • qaf

    [re=342139]Guppy06[/re]: ‘Fraid I’ve never had a fish taco, even though it’s the specialty of the Taco del Mar chain around here.

    Or it could refer to Cmdr Taco, head honcho of /. — maybe he’s pissed off 4chan.

  • Mustang

    Sara, were tou thinking that wonkette commenters actually have jobs and commute and stuff like normal adults? That’s cute, and so so naive.

  • foog

    Mudkipz are to 4chan as trucknutz are to Wonkette.

  • Bruno

    The ALL CAPS font of those signs really piss me off. Can anyone change it to a lower case (but a sans-serif typeface)
