Did I miss something? Are metal signs getting too pricey for the Hudson Valley? Should we expect more paper signs on I84?

Is this makeshift highway sign real or is this a prank? You've got to admit that it really wouldn't be surprising.

I left New York for three days and I came back to see paper road signs directing traffic on I84 in Beacon. I was thinking that maybe this is our tax money hard at work. Or maybe at the very least I thought an old sign fell down and this was just a temporary sign.

No, I don't think things are that bad yet. Upon further inspection I discovered that it was just one of those signs that offer cash for houses. Hudson Valley road signs won't be replaced with paper anytime soon. This was just a prank.
