Two people kissing. World's Largest Clothespin

Philadelphians don't mind the clothespin as much as you do, for a very good reason. When we see it we don't see a clothespin -- we see two people kissing while embraced. View it from the side! Now, you should fall in love with it like we have.

Clothespin. World's Largest Clothespin

The World's Largest Clothespin was right across from city hall, extremely easy to find. Had to take a picture across the street to get the entire thing in the photo.
