Penis Protectors

There is an article on the front page on today's Salem Statesman Journal about these concrete posts at an intersection in companion city Keizer that protect pedestrians from traffic that some citizens called "an unnerving resemblance to male genitalia."

These hypocrites are sure using their imagination to visualize something they can find to get offended about, which is nothing. From the picture they look quite boring, but with this attention it will become an unofficial landmark. Down the road at the new Target they got something similar, big red balls protecting once again the pedestrians from drivers. Maybe I should make a beef about that, but it's July and I missed April 1st.

*UPDATE* According to a KATU poll only 5% find them offensive. See it is not news. Ha.
