    Fork in Road Update #2


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     jimginsd, a photographer in Carlsbad, California, initially shot photos of a giant fork that appeared in the road on Tuesday before a city official removed it Wednesday. '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 at the time. Other residents felt the same way about the quirky statue, and told CNN affiliate KFMB in this video that they hope the city reverses its position.

    Through a sticky note the iReporter left on the statue while it was still up, he found the artist and learned more. He said the artist, who wishes to remain anonymous, is a retired teacher who had been wanting to install the fork for 30 years but just now found the time. The city said in a statement that while it appreciated the creativity, it's neither safe nor legal to put objects like that on public streets or medians.

    The Fork in the Road was removed , In Protest a new sign The What the Fork was installed and promptly Removed . Today I noticed this small white picnic plastic fork gray taped to a City sign in an open sign of defiance to the City of no Sense of Humor AKA Carlsbad.........Good to see at least some people STILL have a sense of humor.....They just don't do City work.
