And finally...only in Schuylkill County would you see this:


This is the pull off at SR 61 and Adamsdale Rd.

Day 1 - A deer was hit there (The couch was dumped there previously).

Day 2 - The deer was on the couch.

Day 3 - The end table and lamp showed up.

Day 4 - The TV and TV stand showed up.

The Trooper had to call PENN DOT because of all the people stopping to take pictures.

The cardboard caption in front of the deer on the couch reads,

"Sorry Hunters. Obama ruined healthcare. We can't afford to have injured hunters on our conscience, so I'm staying home!

Sorry, the Deer."
