The kids who would read this comic probably woud not understand the joke

From the web comic xkcd, Stumbled upon at this location.

And for any of you young people (Chris?) who are struggling to place the cultural reference, may I recommend this Wikipedia entry, or this page on The Fifties Web, or this page on Legends of America.

Now, of course, if someone can please explain the utility of Twitter to me....

Oh I am just so happy to see Burma Shave reference it makes me want to rhyme!

I remember roadside signs
I read them lots of times
we went at fifty
that was nifty
Just like Burma Shave

P.S.
