Traffic signs in New Zealand destroyed by prostitutes performing stunts
Telegraph (UK) ^ | July 17, 2012 | Paul Chapman

Posted on 07/17/2012 1:38:42 PM PDT by Zakeet

Dozens of traffic signs have been destroyed by prostitutes performing pole-dances in the street to attract clients, officials in New Zealand's biggest city have revealed.

More than 40 poles have been bent, buckled or broken in the past 18 months in one area of south Auckland, New Zealand, it is claimed.

The signs, bearing legally required notices such as parking restrictions, are thought to have cost ratepayers thousands of dollars to replace.

"Prostitutes use these street sign poles as dancing poles," said Donna Lee, an elected member of the city council's Otara-Papatoetoe Local Board.

"The poles are part of their soliciting equipment and they often snap them.

"Some of the prostitutes are big, strong people."

They couldn’t be successfully self employed individuals without those Government poles.

Maybe Obama was right after all....

They must either have some wimpy poles down-under, or some darn big prostitutes.

Supplying sign poles to prostitutes seems like a valuable function for a PC socialist government.... remember, it doesn’t have to make sense, only has to be PC.

Our biggest prostitutes confine their activities to the floors of Congress and the State legislatures.

Two solutions: one, buy American made signs , we make them beefy. and two, have a weight limit on N.Z. prostitutes.

Clearly the design requirements for the poles are inadequate.

“Some of the prostitutes are big, strong people.”

Perhaps some of those pole benders may be of the male persuasion?

If that is a true and accurate picture of the average prostitute in New Zealand, I know where I'm going if Obama wins.

Here's a picture of Obama poll dancing:

Why can't they just install stronger poles? Sounds like a safety issue to me. Doesn't New Zealand have an OSHA equivalent?

That has got to be an effective tourist attraction. Don't lots of US federal politicians and bureaucrats go there?

,,, great ideas - firstly, I'll eMAIL China now and order some in! Secondly, with the weight limits, we need to close all the American fast food outlets in south Auckland. That should turn lard into raspberry jelly, eh?

,,, imagine if innovative thinking like this had been applied in the corridors of General Motors HQ - maybe it wouldn't have turned into a government department.
