With so much going on in the world, sometimes it's nice when you can get a laugh at unexpected times. If you drove down Commercial Drive in Yorkville at all over the past couple of days, maybe the laugh happened for you.

Sign Wars have been growing increasingly popular in national news, with businesses who want to create a little bit of fun in their communities. In Cabot, Arkansas, Mean Pig BBQ general manager Chad Merritt kicked off his exchange with “1 2 3 4 We declare a sign war” outside of his eatery, according to KARK. The local Sonic, replied with, “5 6 7 8 We are down to participate” on their sign. The managers had no idea it was going to blow up the way it did.

Now, in Yorkville, you can see the beginning of a local sign war thanks to BBG's and Symeon's.

BBG's posted the message on their sign first. It reads: "Hey Symeon, up for a friendly sign war?" Symeon's quickly responded by making their sign read: "You feta believe it!"

The fun continues as both businesses have added new messages to their billboards.
