|Dildos are now hanging from electrical wires|
in Portland, Oregon. n
Someone, or a bunch of people, are hanging dildos from the wires along the streets of Portland, Oregon.
The unofficial motto of that city is "Keep Portland Weird," so there you go.
So far, nobody has claimed credit for the "artwork" so if a message is trying to be sent, we're not sure what it is. Neither are art experts in Portland.
"If these adult sex toys are being hung on power lines in order to make a statement it hasn't been very effective...It's not very effective if you don't claim it," said Victoria Frey, the executive director of the Portland Institute of Contemporary Art.
Some people thought the dildos might help guide participates in the World Naked Bike Ride along their route, but that doesn't make sense, either.
World Naked Bike Ride, designed to "deliver a vision of a cleaner, safer body-positive world" and to promote bicycling and to protest against excessive use of fossil fuels, is held in dozens of cities, and dildos don't seem to be philisophically part of the event.
Some people think the dildos on the wires are funny, other's don't. I can see parents' concern about having to answer their kid when they ask, "What are those things hanging from the telephone wires," but then I doubt the answer will scar the kids for life, either.
They're probably not safe, as I imagine anything hanging from an electrical wire could present a hazard.
A traffic hazard, too. Some out of town driver in Portland comes in, looks up and stares at the dildos and says, "What the hell are those," then WHAM! he rear ends the car in front of him.
Oh, I'm so tempted to say something off color here. Dildos? Rear ending what's in front of you?
I hope this dildo trend doesn't spread to other cities, like mine, but I'm sure it will anyway.
There's always some, ahem, dick who likes to spoil the view.
