Turns Out This Giant Mystery Signpost in Golden Gate Park is Merely Going to Say, “The Panhandle”

Man, this installation took a long time, man:

And now it’s here, in a rather over-engineered fashion, some might think:

I guess this is what they mean by “wayfinding,” for all those people who suddenly forget which part of Golden Gate Park they’re in:

It almost looks like a map of Oklahoma, non?

Hashtag: #THEPANHANDLEISOK!

So IDK, man. What’s the point of this? You know, if this sign went up back in the day, in the age that it’s aping, that would be a different matter. But IRL, it’s just expensive faux Victorian / Edwardian crap, similar to the twee benches also recently installed as part of some “safety” project.

I just don’t get this, man.

    I think they better look into copyright violation. Florida and Texas may sue.
