WisDOT officials got into the Christmas spirit on Wednesday after posting a photo of a festive highway sign.

In a nod to the holiday classic, “A Christmas Story,” the sign read: “Life is fra-gee-lay. Slow down.”

In the film

, Mr. Parker is opening a wooden box containing the infamous leg lamb when he tries to spell out “fragile” written on its side.

Instead, he pronounces it as “Fra-gee-lay… it must be Italian!” Parker says in the film. Mrs. Parker is quick to correct him, saying that “I think that says FRAGILE, dear.”
