So I'm standing there Saturday night - At the Longest Goddamn Signal Crossing in America. Having a smoke outside my hotel and I strike up a conversation with a guy about my age (29) LOL!! So - are you here for NN13? Nope, I'm a local and what is this Netroots Nation about? So I explain what it is.
The Longest Goddamn Signal Crossing in America might have changed....but I doubt it.
So he asks me - have you seen our Dog Turd Statue? And gestured across the street. I had to answer well, I have noticed a statue over there, but it never really crossed my mind that it looked like a dog turd. Mind you it was 11:30pm. So it was a bit dark and my overriding concern was to cross the street to The Tanq for an adult beverage.
So my fellow traveller at The Longest Goddamn Signal Crossing in America informs me that taxpayer dollars were used to build this particular statue - and it resembles a dog turd.
He expressed the opinion that taxpayer dollars could have been better spent. I had to commiserate, being that having once lived in Modesto, we spent many taxpayer dollars on a fountain that was not well received. The Longest Goddamn Signal Crossing in America changed and we said our goodbyes.
So follow me below the orange woozle offering....
On Sunday morning, I waited for the Longest Goddamn Signal Crossing in America and took some photos.
So, dear readers - it is up to you! ART or Dog Turd?
