Execupundit.com: Quote of the Day. This is not a joke. This is an exact quote from a Railroad warning sign, as reported by Execupundit, that intrepid reporter of all Captain Obvious things:
"Beware! To touch these wires is instant death. Anyone found doing so will be prosecuted."
I suppose the Railroad Company has been in contact with God and/or the Devil, and the prosecution will be conducted simultaneously with the review of your life before it is decided in which direction you will go.
Captain Obvious has been busy, however. In this sign, he lets members of the traveling public know what beasts travel on railroad tracks. I am shocked, shocked I tell you, to find out these things, and I promise not to touch the wires or walk on the railroad tracks.
