Smiling road sign

We were driving along. At the traffic light my wife started laughing and pointed at the stop sign. I pulled out my camera and sot the sign while making the other drivers mad. This graffiti brought all kind of ideas to us. Perhaps we can suggest that the city will add emoticons to all traffic signs. It cam make your driving experience much more interesting. Smiling traffic signs will calm drivers. I am sure that a statistically significant drop in car accidents will be registered. Then we wondered what was the statement the artist was trying to make? Perhaps this is just a start of the "occupy the street" movement. Is the artist an optimist or not? Did he run out of officially designated graffiti walls and had to move to road signs?
