If you happened to be driving past the Willy Street gas station in Milwaukee this week you may have come across a sign that read: “DON’T DIE A VIRGIN, TERRORISTS ARE UP THERE WAITING FOR YOU

The gas station owner wasn’t the author of the sign. It was the man who lives right next door — Grant Zimmerman — who has been posting messages on the board for about two years. Other signs penned by the witty Zimmerman include, “This is a private sign please do not read,” or puns like “Frog parking only all others toad.”

The gas station owner, who had loved the sign when it was first put up, has since told Zimmerman it has to go. When asked about the controversy, Zimmerman told WISC-TV news:

Although it was the Zimmerman who put the sign up, he wasn’t the original author of the terrorist joke. A number of comedians have taken it upon themselves to give the old “72 virgins in paradise” joke a new spin, including B.J Novak and Michael Palascak.
