Problem Solved!

Kathy of Birmingham Blues had a great idea for solving Keizer, Oregon’s penile post problem: “I suggest the city place some plants around the base of the parking posts.”

I did a mock-up so we could all take a look, and I think it looks awesome. What do you think?

    MUCH better!

    Wow I needed a good laugh right about now.

  3. If the posts could be made to dispense a shot of Jergens lotion by rubbing the sides, they’d be perfect.

  4. Here’s one I’ve been wanting to do all day:

  5. Are you trying to keep all the lesbians away from this town?

  6. I think I should move there…

    Great Bollards!

  8. Oh geez — I think I just hurt myself laughing.


  9. That’s perfect! Thanks, Liss. I knew you could do it.

  11. It looks like it’s watching me shave.

    Anyone ever see the great state of Florids’ capital complex?

  13. yea and you should see this “symbol” on all of the cops uniforms.

  14. Hmm, I don’t know. The parking post looks kind of dangerous to me – all big and hard like that. Someone who fell onto it could get really knocked up! I think maybe there needs to be some kind of protection. Maybe a long rubber covering to go over it? That would make things safer. 😉

  15. Some balls are held for charity
    And some for fancy dress
    But when they’re held for pleasure
    They’re the balls that I like best
    My balls are always bouncing
    To the left and to the right
    It’s my belief that my big balls
    Should be held every night.

    This (ahem) post is one for the Best Of archives, definitely.

    Have you ever thought about taking up landscape architecture? You obviously have a hand for it….

  17. Great Bushy Balls of Fire! What a super solution to a very hard problem. Congrats. (And now you all understand why I moved out of Oregon many, many years ago.)

  18. Litbrit my dear, You know I love you, but I’m afraid that little nugget was from the Bon Scott era.

  19. Sir Robin, I stand corrected. I’ve only ever heard Brian singing it. 🙂

    What’s next, frothy whitewater fountains spurting intermittently from each post?

    Oh, and August J. Pollak has another suggestion for a remedy that (strangely) might not be effective. (Scroll down to “Now THAT’s some quick thinking”…)

    ….It’s my belief …”

    Litbrit, I’ve never loved AC/DC more than right now ….

    I think they should get a concrete saw and cut a little slot across the top of that domed part. That way they could serve not just as traffic bollards but also as post office drop boxes or something.

    You people have dirty minds! 🙂

  26. The people of Keizer may just be feeling a little inadequate. Their little poles cannot compare to the Ypsilanti Water Tower.
