You can now get free BBQ in exchange for campaign signs

Elections are finally over, and whether your candidate won or lost, the only thing that campaign sign on your lawn is doing now is making someone somewhere sad (probably Ralph Nader). So why not convert that piece of political debris into some happiness? At least that's the idea behind Southern BBQ joint Sticky Fingers' new promotion, wherein they accept campaign signage in exchange for free food.

At any of the restaurant's 16 locations, hungry customers can bring in their election signs and receive a free appetizer, although you've gotta eat more than just an appetizer for the deal to qualify. Sticky Fingers doesn't want anyone sticking their, uh, neck out for some gratis nachos, though -- they're encouraging people not to steal signs from their neighbors. Let those people celebrate/grieve in their own way, why don't you?

The BBQ joint will hold onto the signs for two weeks after they're brought in, in case any political figures want them back (all it takes to turn them into 2016 signs is some permanent marker). All others will be recycled.
