Ever since Donald Trump was elected president of the United States, people seem a bit torn on what their reaction should be — should they laugh, or should they cry?
This sign, spotted in north-end Halifax, gives you permission to do a bit of both.
Ben Wedge was on his way home from work, walking down Agricola Street, earlier this week when he spotted the homemade sign in a window.
"Number of Days Since Trump Last Embarrassed America" the sign read, with a light-up, electronic ticker below.

Of course, the ticker was set to zero.
"I just kind of giggled," said Wedge of his reaction before he snapped the picture. "I just thought it was funny."
"But then I thought, 'Wait a second. They included the option for a triple-digit count, which is even funnier.'"
Another Twitter user pointed out the same irony.

Upon closer inspection, however, it appears only one of the numbers is capable of changing. The other two are paper printouts.
Which doesn't exactly make anyone confident about how the next few days will play out — let alone the next four (or eight) years.
