Hump Speed

All I was doing was driving down the road. I wasn’t looking for meaning. I hadn’t asked for a sign. But I got one anyway…


I am familiar with the proper protocol in these situations. When the words appeared before me, I looked for the meaning of life in them.

It’s obvious enough what “ram speed” is. And “cruise speed.” But what is this “hump speed?” And why was this sign revealed to me? Is it meant to answer my questions? Or is it supposed to make me question my answers?

Or maybe it is intended to send me spinning in a speculational spiral, such as… “What is the speed of one humper humping?”

Whatever it is, they should put it somewhere else. I was so distracted that I drove way too fast over a large swell in the road.

    going too fast makes you the “speed chump”

    Are you sure it wasn’t “Speed Hump”? While driving, you first came upon the word “Speed”, then the word “Hump”.

    Perhaps it was a command, like “Speed Hump, and I mean do it NOW”. Or, it was promoting the practice, like “Speed Hump: it’s not just for rabbits any more!”.

    You should think about it some more, but certainly not while driving.

    By way, Dave Hickey says hello.

    The apartment “community” we’re looking to move to in Perkasie (about thirty miles north of Philly) is just LOUSY with these signs. . . . Can’t WAIT to move there.

    I first read it as “Speed Hump”, like something to be done quickly…or the opposite of a “Slow Hump”. Then I thought maybe it was “Hump Speed”, Which made me think….hmmm “How fast does one hump?” (Or how would you measure the speed of humping??)

    Regardles, at leat you didn’t see it on Hump Day (aka: Wednesday) -fyi: I would have gone over it waaaay to fast too.

    Hump speed is the speed at which you hump.
    In my 20’s everyday was hump day.
    Now in my 50’s hump day isn’t Wednesday it’s Sunday.(Unless we’re babysiting grandson.) The speed is also slower.

    Maybe it was an itinerary for a drug fuelled debauchery session.

    Slower is better. Trust me – I’m a docter

    I was doing my laundry the other day and the washing machine told me that my load was out of balance.
