Tony and I were driving through a construction zone on Route 141, a highway in our area that's being widened, and we saw this:
This was the most creative thing I've seen in quite some time. It's hard to make out, but the "worker" has a SLOW sign in his right hand. We did (after we stopped laughing).
After doing a little research, I found out that we'd met Barrel Bob, an eleven-foot tall sculpture made of recycled orange and white construction barrels. As "spokesperson" for work zone safety for the Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT), his job is to warn motorists that they’re in a construction zone and need to slow down.
I wonder if I'll have any more Barrel Bob sightings soon?
