Residents of Scott Township, Pa., are all agog over some new concrete posts installed along two roads — but it’s not the added layer of safety that has tongues wagging.

It’s the posts’ phallic appearance, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

“People are laughing at it. They’re calling it Penis Road,” local resident Pat Martin told township commissioners, the Post-Gazette reported.

The posts have rounded tops that have local politicians having to answer some embarrassing questions.

Commissioner Eileen Meyers said she didn’t see the posts, called bollards, before they were ordered and conceded she would have preferred “something more antique. I think they’re too modern for that area.”

Commissioner Bill Wells wondered whether the tops of the things could be somehow flattened.


“People need to get their minds out of the gutters,” said Steve Beuter, manager of the local community of Carnegie.

Denise Fitzgerald, town manager of Scott, said she would find out how much it would cost to alter the posts, according to the Post-Gazette.
