Found: another one of the cocks, at Miami’s famous Firehouse Four.

    I’m sorry, but these things are sooooo ugly.

    There’s another one outside El Pub on Calle Ocho and 16th Ave.

    Chicago had cows
    DC had pandas
    Ocala has horses
    Seattle had pigs
    Gables had flamingos (I think MB did too)

    What’s the problem?

    For the record, I think all of those things were terrible. It was a clever (if tasteless) thing the first time they did it with the cows, every example since then has had all the tackiness with none of the originality.

    I’m not sure, but to the best of my memory the rooster case is slightly worse then most of the others because 1) it was funded out of money intended to help the poor and 2) they were all done by the same artist, work for hire.

    The link that you included in your post for Firehouse 4 is actually for Miami-Dade Fire Rescue’s Station 4 (Miami-Dade County), not for the City of Miami’s Station 4. Nonetheless, I appreciate the link because it allowed me to see a bunch of interesting stuff. You may want to note the difference in your post, though, to keep things in order.

    Personally I have a problem with “money to help the poor”. The poor need to help them selves.

    As far as the roosters go, ugly!
