Of course, TreeHugger does not condone vandalism of public property, but I often get a chuckle out of stop sign "modifications" with a message, the most popular probably being "stop eating animals," although "Stop Hammertime" seems to be big as well. Matthew Blackett of Spacing writes that "It provides a very prominent platform for anyone who has a desire to express a political or social message."

In some cases it is turning into a graffiti war.
