SPOKANE, Wash. - Residents in Spokane, Washington received an unpleasant gesture from a street sign as they crossed the street.
A crosswalk light displayed an image that looked the middle finger, rather than a hand to signal for walkers to stop.
A snow storm blew snow into the crosswalk signal, blocking out the pointer, ring and pinkie finger. Only the middle finger and thumb were left visible.
The picture has become a viral sensation online.
