Giant flying pliers menace West Bromwich
Street View captures transdimensional DIY moment
We're obliged to all those readers who've sent us new Street View sightings gleaned from the pretty-well nationwide coverage now enjoyed by the UK, especially those involving surveillance feedback loops .
We'll be doing something on your spots next week, but in the meantime we invite you to ponder the disturbing case of the West Bromwich giant flying pliers , submitted by a shaken Craig Keightley:
The gravitational distortion effect around the pliers suggest they've just passed through a transdimensional portal from an alternative universe where perhaps the inhabitants just take their DIY a lot more seriously or, more chillingly, entire solar systems have been subdued by pitiless, Borg-like plier creatures.
Just in case it's the latter, I for one would like to welcome, and so forth... ®
StreetViewFun is calling  this piece of strangeness "God's Pliers". Divine provenance? You decide.
