I'll have my kids paint you one for five bucks

I'm really trying to understand this, I truly am.

How the FUCK does a road sign cost ten grand?

Can someone explain this to me, pretty please?  A friend of mine puts up road signs for a living, I'd be surprised if he makes $20 an hour doing it despite having to spend every week away from home.  For that sort of price, I want signs that will give my car a handjob as it's driving down the road, or at least blow fairy dust and ground-up unicorn horns into my AC system.

This is the government that we're supposed to trust to cut costs in health care?  Is there some reason we should expect this sort of reckless extravagance on something completely unnecessary to not predict even crazier expenditures on lots of nothing in our medical system?

Update: @KatMcKinley (RWS) proves my point.
