Here's a little story about municipal government at its finest:
A 6-foot-tall fork appeared at an intersection in Carlsbad, CA, on Tuesday. A city crew removed it Wednesday -- apparently
the sculpture is a code violation they can't take a joke.
Then a resident erected a sign in its place that said "Why the fork not?" The city removed the sign, as well.
Locals, naturally, were pissed -- so they began taping real forks to a nearby sign in protest.
