yarnivore bites! guerrilla linguini

Fork as bicycle rack, sans unlawful decoration.

Fork as bicycle rack, complete with unlawful decoration.

I saw this 'fork' several days ago.  A new installation on dear little 4th street.  I had to look at it twice to figure out what it was...fork as bike rack.  Here in Long Beach, deep in the SoCal artsy beach scene, the city has created bike racks to reflect the businesses in front of which they stand.  Cups of coffee in front of Viento y Agua or Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf.  Slices of pizza in front of Olives and flowers in front of Kava Yoga.  A lovely little Greek deli recently moved out and now the sign sweetly beckons me with the word 'Bakery' in large buttery letters.  Out side of this soon to be den of waist enhancing joy is said fork/bicycle rack.  So lonely, so bare, it needed...something...something starchy...something yummy...something pasta!
Here we have it, linguini as 'unlawful decoration' (thank you Sara for this new description).
I now have a 'fork' to decorate....big piece of crocheted lettuce perhaps?  Crochet bacon? An egg?  The comestible ideas are endless. 
Dropping this bomb on my way to work just made my day that much more....delicious.
