Last Monday, we mentioned how the daughter of a well-known local attorney lost her pet chicken, prompting her to post a crude-but-cute sign at the corner of Walnut Hill and Strait lanes. Well, this weekend somebody posted another sign just beneath the original, this one for a lost snake. Of course it's a joke: The phone number is (214) 555-HISS, which suggests it was made by an adult or some savvy teen who's seen every bad movie ever made. Maybe it's some kinda advertising for Snakes on a Plane, or perhaps this particular telephone pole is turning out to be the launching pad for a new art movement: Neo-prepubism. --Robert Wilonsky
