    Why do humans have to ruin everything and everywhere they go? This is why I see humanity as a *parasite* on this (once) beautiful planet. We just destroy everything by building roads through perfect landscapes, cutting down the rain forests, polluting our oceans and air, and doing crap like this everywhere people go! Humanity is like a cancer eating away at Mother Earth, destroying everything, and breeding uncontrollably, even though we know the planet is already overpopulated. Everybody always thinks small scale and selfishly, nobody seems to see the bigger picture that we actually need to protect and *respect* the living organism (planet earth) that we are living on. It’s the only one we have.

    Ok, that went a bit off subject, but yes, get rid of those darn things! They looked cute when there were just a few of them, but now it’s all gone totally overboard!

    Did you miss the part about the practice being ILLEGAL Paula!

    Tell you what, how about you place one on your own property where you can do what you like without breaking the law and look at it every day.

    Or, perhaps you can let everyone who disapproves of this illegal defacement of public property know where you live so we can come and deface your town if you love the damned things so much.

    It’ll save those of us who live here having to look at your tacky crap!

    Bah, Humbug to those who object to some harmless fun. What harm did it do to anyone?

    Regardless of anyone’s feelings on the matter – it’s not permitted.
    Perhaps you could provide a fence outside your home/office so that people can display their “expressions of love” there instead.
