The worst town sign in Worth County is pretty obvious. It is Manly. How do you have a great town name like Manly and have such an awful town sign. Their town sign should clearly have a picture of me, when my beard is full on on their town sign. Maybe I’ll just make one for them, sneak into their town and put it up for them. I was also a little disappointed in Fertile’s sign as well.
I think there a couple contenders for Best in Show for Worth County. Grafton has a great sign. Hanlontown has an interesting sign as well. However, I have to give it to Joice.
Joice – Best in Show – Worth County
