Leave it to those witty cats who jive in New York to come up with something like this. The Scum River Bridge makes a big point and is directed at the city’s leaders. This has ‘creative genius’ written all over it.

Evidently, a leaky pipe at 33rd Street caused a gross cesspool of nastiness to develop across the entire sidewalk, and with freezing, it becomes a serious hazard. The Scum River Bridge was built as a safe alternative, and has even received a commendation from a city, and a promise to fix the leaky pipe. Stats for Pedestrian-Saving Pranks Trending: Older & Mild
