Xmas Prank Turns NJ Highway Sign Into Tribute To Classic Movie Dad

“Tis’ the season to be merry?”
“Well that’s my name.”
“No shit?”

National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation is a Christmas classic and Clark W. Griswold is probably one of the best fictional fathers in movie and TV history. The movie gets better with each passing year and now a new generation of kids enjoy spending Christmas with America’s adopted and dysfunctional family — the Griswolds.

Someone in the state of New Jersey loves Clark and the Griswolds so much, he turned a highway sign pointing to the town of Clark into an homage to “father Christmas” himself.


“Hey! If any of you are looking for any last-minute gift ideas for me, I have one. I’d like Frank Shirley, my boss, right here tonight. I want him brought from his happy holiday slumber over there on Melody Lane with all the other rich people and I want him brought right here, with a big ribbon on his head, and I want to look him straight in the eye and I want to tell him what a cheap, lying, no-good, rotten, four-flushing, low-life, snake-licking, dirt-eating, inbred, overstuffed, ignorant, blood-sucking, dog-kissing, brainless, dickless, hopeless, heartless, fat-ass, bug-eyed, stiff-legged, spotty-lipped, worm-headed sack of monkey shit he is! Hallelujah! Holy shit! Where’s the Tylenol?”

How about a highway sign instead, Clark?
