Off topic but interesting, at least to me

The quaint English village of Shitterton historically has had quite a problem keeping its standard metal welcome sign from being stolen, for obvious reasons.

That vexing problem has most likely now been solved with the recent installation of a 3,000 pound replacement sign made of stone:

""We thought, 'Let's put in a ton and a half of stone and see them try and take that away in the back of a Ford Fiesta'," Mr. [parish council chairman Ian] Ventham said." 

Now that's using one's brain.

Hopefully they also start selling copies of the old welcome sign in a gift shop......make a pain into a revenue source!
