deer crossing signI've made some pretty hilarious mistakes in my day. Like, for example, when I thought "Anon" was the most prolific classical music composer we studied in my Intro to Music Theory class freshman year in high school. Fine, college. I thought that guy wrote everything! Whoops. That's why I feel kind of bad for this woman who called into a North Dakota radio station to complain about the deer crossing signs on the highway. It's a hilarious mistake along the lines of thinking Anon is a person, and not an abbreviation for "anonymous."

You see, this woman's under the incorrect impression that those signs you see on interstates with deer on them are state sanctioned areas where deer have been trained to cross the street. She doesn't realize that they're just a warning that there are deer in the area, and she wants the government to move their ill-placed deer crossing signs to somewhere, you know, a little less trafficked than, say, a four lane freeway. You just have to listen:

Very silly mistake, lady, but don't worry, I'm sure somewhere in hilarious gaffe land, Anon is moving those deer crossing signs right now as we speak.

How funny is this?? What's the silliest mistake you've ever made?
