You know, just some dildos hanging from a power line. Nothing to see here.
Now, you may have seen shoes hanging from a power line. Back in the day, a pair of shoes hanging from a power line meant it was a drug dealing spot. So, what does a sex toy say?

You know, on second thought, we don’t want to know why.
A Reuters reporter shared what he thought of the incident:
“The large white and bright orange dildos appear to have been strung together in pairs, and have prompted numerous reports to the Portland Office of Neighborhood Involvement, department spokeswoman Lisa Leddy said on Monday. A spokesman for public utility Portland General Electric said he did not believe the rubber products posed a fire hazard.”
Yes, fake plastic penises start popping up all over town and the biggest problem is a fire hazard.

Whether this is a social statement or just a passing fad, I think we can all agree that it is extremely bizarre.
