Stop-Sign Jamming

by Chris MacDonald

stop_harperI hesitate to start a new category (new for this blog) of normative signs that have been modified (enhanced? defaced?).

Here’s a STOP sign that has had the name of Canada’s Prime Minister added. It’s worth noting, I suppose, that this modification does little or nothing to change the impact of the stop sign itself.

Should we call this “norm jamming,” by way of analogy to culture jamming?

(Thanks to Sheldon Wein for the picture.)
