Michigan Mom’s Silly Walks Sign Sparks Brief Moment of Joy in the Neighborhood
Inspired by the classic “Monty Python” sketch, Michigan resident Liz Koto posted a sign in her front yard that reads: “You have now entered the jurisdiction of the Minister of Silly Walks. Commence walking silly immediately!” People have obeyed, and each silly walk is captured on her doorbell camera.
Each silly walk has been shared on @yorkshire.silly.walks on Instagram and the account has quickly grown to over 50,000 followers!
The idea has inspired others to create their own silly walks signs in their neighborhoods around the globe. The sign was perhaps also inspired by this Norwegian Public Television’s gag (NRK) where they set up the silly walks sign at a crosswalk back in 2014.
