City with no sense of humor removes literal fork in road10/20/2012
Carlsbad, Calif., has let loose the reins of conformity and slipped into some Dadaist art dialogue after a retired physics teacher put a 6-foot-tall, silver-painted fork into the concrete island of a street intersection. The anonymous artist discreetly drilled holes into the concrete with the help of his son to mount the fork, and while the fork seemed universally beloved, a city crew removed it because of safety concerns/The Man loves to keep people down. Soon after the fork was removed, a sign was put up in its place with the haunting existential plea “Why the Fork Not?” Carlsbad: The new home of conceptual art. [Source]
