    The Fork in the Road


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     jimginsd, a photographer for the San Diego Community News Group, was headed home in Carlsbad, California, when he saw the fork two blocks from his house at the intersection of Levante Street and Anillo Way. 'I actually laughed out loud in my truck and just knew I had to get some shots of this urban art before some city employee takes it down or it is vandalized,' he said. 'This was just way too clever, ingenious and artsy to pass up.' He said he plans to put a Post-it note on the fork today in hopes of finding the artist.

    Update: The fork was removed by the city Wednesday and later replaced with a sign that said "Why the fork not?" That sign came down, too, but then Thursday, a normal-sized plastic fork appeared on a nearby road sign. The iReporter headed over to contribute, and shot these photos.

    I live in San Diego County , specifically La Costa Ca.
    As you turn off of El Camino Real on to Levente St you drive up a wide stretch of road towards Anellio as you approach this intersection the road goes right and it veers left which creates a natural Fork in the road as I am sure there are 1,000s of forks in the road like this in the United States.
    What I bet is none or few have a Literally Six Foot Fork in the road !!
    Today as I approached this fork in the road I noticed a shiny silver/aluminum looking utensil standing upright at the junction of the road. As I slowed down I noticed it was a FORK , the Fork was mounted on a steel base to support it and attached to the asphalt.
    Sometime either Monday night or Tuesday some very creative , ingenious and crafty neighbor( i assume) mounted the FORK ...The fork is made out of wood and seems to be well constructed.....I parked and took a few photos...As I was shooting 4-5 more cars stopped to look and take shots as well.....So the Lesson learned,   When you have a Fork in The Road Build one for Display !!!
