Barely 24 hours after posting our photos of the Speed Hump we returned to the scene of the sign, but it was gone. Gone, gone, gone...really gone.

We stopped dead, got out, looked everywhere, but no sign of the sign did we see. The nice tall green solid steel channel post to which the large yellow sign had been bolted was still there and naked as a jaywalker in San Francisco. There had been no attempt to twist, relocate or otherwise cause the post to present the warning sign to oncoming vehicles. This was no corrective measure, no vigilantee righting of public wrong, but a cold and calculated blow against the empire.

Bring out your UV light tonight, but you won't find any funny fluids. Call in Crime Scene, but they'll find no latent prints here. You can forget all about DNA because Zombies don't have any. The only clue to this crime is tucked away in our glove box right next to the expired proof of insurance card. The whole mystery is explained in the note we found at the scene bearing the following lyrics:

Well no one told me about her,
The way she lied
Well no one told me about her,
Oh how that Speed Hump sign did hide,
But it's too late to say you're sorry
How would I know, why should I care
Please don't bother tryin' to find her,
She's not there !

OK, Just so nobody thinks we hit a speed bump too fast and lost our marbles, this little ditty is not OUR composition. It's a 1964 song by The Zombies which you can hear if you don't believe us:

Saw the note on the sign post and my head filled with the music as my head began to sway as the young face of a blue eyed brunette came to mind. Read your clarifying comment for those that could not possibly remember the song, understood why you did so and realized cars don't cost $3700 anymore, gas costs more than 26 cents a gallon and just maybe those shiny whiskers I shaved this morning may have been gray. Time, once again, for reflection and a whiskey.

Thanks, we'll just have the whiskey.
