Big Boy sign face-plants in northern Michigan

Looks like yesterday's high winds have given this Big Boy a case of the Mondays.

The National Weather Service reports the Big Boy sign outside a Kalkaska location of the restaurant chain blew over around 1:30 p.m. yesterday as the northern part of Michigan's lower peninsula experienced winds with gusts of up to 50 miles per hour. Photos of the face-plant went viral on social media, drawing some pretty LOL-worthy captions.

By noon on Monday, one of at least two viral posts had been shared more than 4,000 times. Heather Hammond Brooks, who is behind the second image pictured above, captioned her post: "With all the politics and bad press in this community maybe the death of our beloved Big Boy sign will bring this community together. "

If you're up near Kalkaska, the restaurant is operating as normal today — it might just be a little harder to spot.
