The City of Keizer is taking heat for installing a group of cement posts designed to protect pedestrians from cars, but which some say is a phallic symbol.

A total of 52 of the posts were installed at a busy intersection in Keizer and they are getting a lot of second glances.

A number of residents have complained to the city that the posts resemble male genitalia.

Maybe it’s me, but I could walk by those barriers twenty times a day and not give a second thought about what they look like.  Of course, when you point out what they resemble, then that’s all you can think of.

I’m sure that’s what happened in Kaizer, Oregon.  Some oversexed teenager saw the new barriers and made a comment, and then it got stuck in everybody’s mind.

We had a similar problem here in Winston-Salem a few years ago, when they completed the new Wachovia building.
