not all those who wander are lost

The only city in North America that makes a tradition of lighting itself on fire once a year – LET IT ALL BURN !

Hopefully the yearly efforts to stave off the yearly arson ritual were successful. Its hard to tell since the City started the program of simply not announcing how many fires were lit to keep the stats out of national news. Truth be known, many people have long believed that the majority of fires are insurance scams and are actually lit by the property owners.

Well its Halloween, and what is scarier than a whitewashed baby holding a giant tire up on a roof ??? NOTHING !


Just hilarious…Thanks to Steve for a heads up on this bizzarre local signage.

Look, enough IS enough folks…Just get it over with and vote for SATAN..

this message is endorsed by the Devil and has been paid for with your soul..

Im not endorsing vandalism here, but uh……this is classic.

    Robyn, the tire store is located on the corner of McGraw and Wyoming. You can’t miss it.

  • The Devil sign is behind Slows BBQ in Corktown

  • Where did you see that Devos billboard?

  • Ha! That baby is sick.

    Is anyone really watching, or did the city just print up a bunch of signs in hopes that arsonists would be fooled?

  • excellent work, dfunk! i especially like the baby with the tire, haha. walked around the city a lot last night and didn’t see a single fire… at least in my neighborhood.

  • dFUNK, I was hoping the Fisk Tire Boy was still there. Warholak Tire Service, who specializes in tires for vintage as well as new cars, has been in that location since 1931, so The kid has been up there all this time.
    A little history re this tired little guy:
    The Fisk Tire boy first appeared in 1907, when B. Giffen, a young commercial artist, sketched a figure of a yawning boy wearing pjs. His right arm held a tire and his left arm held a candle. The “Time to retire” slogan was linked to the figure.
    We should all be thankful that he’s still there watching over the place…
