I was driving through Indiana and just had to stop and photograph this help wanted sign referencing the famous “signs song”. I first heard the song when it was covered by Tesla in 1990 but it was originally released by Five Man Electrical Band in 1971. Of course the song then got stuck in my head and I had to look up the lyrics.

And the sign says “long hair freaky people need not apply”

So I tucked my hair up under my hat and went in to ask him why

He said “you look like a fine outstanding young man, I think you’ll do”

So I took off my hat and said “imagine that, huh, me working for you”
