Rubber Tree Stripped

In yet another example of some strange artistic urban movement, this telephone pole at East Bay Street and Market wears the gnawed deposits of thousands of passers-by. To combat the problem, the city has been hiring The Charleston Gum Guy to strip the pole of its rubber layers as needed. He has visited again, because the pole has recently been cleaned, but this is what it looked like in late June, right before the Gum Guy's last visit. Considering the number of people participating in the apparent joyous activity of gum sticking, we are certain it won't take long to accumulate again.
