Long Description:

County of sign: Montgomery County
Location of sign: on Mo State Hwy K @ intersection with Hwy P, Americus

The obvious is the military of kitchen duty -KP - In the Marine Corps it is called "Mess Duty"...but in the Army, and advertised and exploited by the movie industry...every one knows KP, and what it means

When I first saw this sign, the old 1950's song by the Coasters jumped into my head...and stayed there all day.
it must be the teenage meaning of life....

"Take out the papers and the trash
Or you don't get no spendin' cash
If you don't scrub that kitchen floor
You ain't gonna rock and roll no more
Yakety yak [(don't talk back)]

Just finish cleanin' up your room
Let's see that dust fly with that broom
Get all that garbage out of sight
Or you don't go out Friday night
Yakety yak [(don't talk back)]

You just put on your coat and hat
And walk yourself to the laundromat
And when you finish doin' that
Bring in the dog and put out the cat
Yakety yak [(don't talk back)]

Did you explain the double meaning of the word(s)?: yes

Did you explain the location or wording that brings the sign's double meaning to mind?: yes

Did you explain the meaning of life? :): yes
