Division Dildos: It’s a bird! It’s a plane! No…it’s a dildo.

A biker, blue skies, some houses. It seems normal, right?

Don’t let it fool you.

Examine the white things hanging off the telephone wire above the street. Sneakers? Sleepy birds? I think not.

I recently heard about this public phenomenon but…hearing isn’t quite believing. So I was delighted to drive under a well endowed pair on Division. I parked my car in a cramped space behind New Seasons and trotted down the street to snap a shot.

It’s a little bit of a jolt to an activity that can be so mundane. You are driving, biking, or walking down a picturesque semi-residential street and all of a sudden: DILDO SIGHTING.

Is this some twisted sort of Christmas ornament left by a cruel benefactor?

A new form of public art?

An attempt to star on Buzzfeed?

Dildos hanging out mid-air fits in quite nicely with Portland’s “Keep Portland Weird” branding, methinks. “Keep Portland Weird” and the acclaimed television show Portlandia has stereotyped Portland into a rainy city full of hipsters, aspiring musicians, bicycles, and cafes.
