Fender Bender

I have recently started noticing the bright yellow signs by the interstate that say "Fender Bender" and then something like "Pull onto Shoulder." I don't remember exactly what they say... but it pretty much falls into the common sense category. I'm guessing they put them up while the interstate is under construction because a small accident could completely stop traffic if the common-sensically impaired aren't somehow spurred to get out of the way.

It's funny.... every time I'm driving along and see one of these signs, I get this mental image of some obsessive, slightly crazed, guitar collector slowly shaking his head during his weekly rehab meeting. "Yeah.... I went on a Fender bender this week. I bought.... five. --groan--"
