Hacked L.A. Traffic Sign Wants You To "Read A F*cking Book"

The traffic sign was obviously hacked (there are currently no suspects), but that didn't stop folks from enjoying the sign's literary, albeit salty, message:

I don't condone swears (this is a lie), but this hacked LA traffic sign is fantastic.

No word yet if the sign caused a traffic jam due to drivers immediately starting to read a fucking book.
