2. Traffic barrel monsters
We have all been caught in tight traffic probably waiting for the probation officer. Joseph Carnevale, a college student, looked at traffic barrels and decided that they would look better with some modification.
He made a ten-foot monster with a tiny waist and muscular legs asking for a ride. Of course he could not fit in any of the cars, apart from the police car in which he actually did. The image was very popular and went viral locally.
The authorities saw this as a threat to public security and charged Joseph Carnevale with vandalism.
