A specter is haunting Portland—the specter of dildos.
According to Reuters, hundreds of “phallic sex toys” have recently started appearing on Rip City power lines, prompting numerous complaints to the city and several delightful Twitter posts.
But fear not, penily-menaced Portlanders, because officials say the synthetic dicks pose no immediate threat. From Reuters:
A spokesman for public utility Portland General Electric said he did not believe the rubber products posed a fire hazard.
Still, area power companies would prefer you didn’t use their lines as ad hoc nun-chub hangers.
“The temptation may be there for tittering,” a Pacific Power spokesperson told The Oregonian, “but we want to keep the lines as safe as possible.”
