Portland, Oregon embraces its weird, and kinky!, reputation in one fell swoop with its latest craze: throwing dildos over power lines. Everyone knows about throwing an old pair of kicks over a neighborhood power line, but a dildo? Now that takes creativity.
Reuters reports Portland residents have reported dildo sightings to the Portland Office of Neighborhood Involvement and although it may be a disturbing sight for some (What do the kids make of these dongs?), they were deemed harmless by a Portland General Electric spokesman who said that the dildos aren't a fire hazard.
Portlandian Lucila Cejas Epple told Reuters she first spotted some dildos hanging over a street fair last weekend, but they seem to have been up since June when a video of some titled “Portland is dildos” hit YouTube.
