The Fork in the Road is Taken

A six-foot-tall fork appeared in Carlsbad, California, at the intersection of Levante Street and Anillo Way on Tuesday. The unnamed artist is a 62-year-old retired teacher who said he was impressed by the joke in The Muppet Movie in which Kermit and Fozzie encounter a giant silverware fork when they are looking for a fork in the road. Thirty years later, he had the time to make the joke a reality. Carlsbad residents got a kick out of the sculpture, but a city crew removed it on Wednesday. You might say they got the fork out of there.

Another resident erected a sign in its place that says "Why the fork not?" which the city also removed. Then locals began taping real, normal-sized forks to a nearby sign in protest. A spokesperson for the city said the sculpture is a code violation. Link -via Fark
