My mother grew up in central southern Minnesota, and enjoys telling of a town in the area --- which will remain nameless here. On the main highway into town was a sign reading "Welcome to <town name>." Since the other side of the sign was available for some sentiment for those leaving town, that side had "Next time you come, come to stay" --- quite an appropriate message . . . until you noticed that it was at the cemetery entrance.
