Town Uglification Committee Approves Pile Of Orange Bags
ENCINITAS, CA—As part of ongoing efforts to maintain the town's unplesasant appearance, members of the Encinitas Uglification Committee in conjunction with the NCTD unanimously approved a measure Tuesday to preserve the ugly orange sandbags and weeds in the middle of the Hwy101 intersection. "We're doing to do all we can to make sure these new piles of trash are in full view of anyone who comes to visit our little town, as well as those who call Encinitas home," said chairwoman Karen Spalding, who oversees all of the town's upkeep, including planting weeds in parks, spray-painting profanities on the walls of the public library, smearing dog feces at prominent intersections and chopping down all the old growth trees that line the historic coast highway. "It's important that our work properly reflects a white trash persona in hopes to someday attract a Wal*Mart. I think tearing down the La Paloma theater might help as well." Spalding added that she was confident this latest initiative would attract businesses interested in dumping their waste products directly into Cotton Wood Creek.
