Everyday on my way to work I pass one of these signs. It took me a while but I eventually noticed it wasn’t like most signs. This was a hula-hoop sign. Is it for Hula-hoopers? Do they need their own crossing signs? And why would Hula-hoopers cross the street? I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been Hula-hooping and couldn’t cross a street….if ONLY I had sign! So I’ve done a little research (ok not much) trying to figure out what the sign REALLY means. Some sites say it has to do with a band, String Cheese Incident, symbol. Others say the band threw out hula-hoops at their concerts in the ’90s. Still others say its just a regular sign with transparency hula-hoop sticker. The String Cheese Incident (SCI) online store sells hula-hoop crossing stickers. Is this where it all came from? Are those legit sources?? Who knows. Is hula-hooping what its all about? I honestly thought that was the hokey-pokey. Maybe I’ll have to investigate one of the actual signs I’ve seen. I noticed 3 in Manhattan so far and am now on the lookout not only for the signs but the hula-hoopers themselves!
