The Fuck You Statue that a scorned Vermont man built!

The new saying is: Hell hath no fury like a Vermont man who hasn’t been allowed to build a damn garage on his property for years!!! Vermonters may be happy hippies who only have hate for saying the letter “t”, but fuck with them and they’ll fuck with you back. Case in point: Ted Pelkey of Westford, Vermont.

The Burlington Free Press says that for years, the town’s Development Review Board has pretty much given him the middle finger over him building an 8,000 square foot garage on his property so that he can re-locate his monofilament cleaning and truck repair business from the nearby town of Swanton. So Ted Pelkey gave them the middle finger back by paying an unnamed artisan $4,000 for the creation of that gigantically gorgeous middle finger statue. That statue is the Christ the Redeemer for those of us who are members of The Church Of Fucking. Over. It.

Ted says that he’s running out of space to expand his business in Swanton, which is why he wants to move it to Westford, but the Development Review Board keeps rejecting his permit, saying that his application doesn’t meet their standards. Ted showed them what he thought of their standards by putting the 700-pound wooden middle finger statue on top of a 16-foot pole on his property. He also pointed floodlights at it so it can be seen 24 hours a day. Ted let his neighbors know that the middle finger wasn’t for them but for the powers-that-be of the town.

It was critical to me to make sure that my neighbors and the people who live in this town understood that I didn’t put that up there for them. It is aimed directly at the people who sit in our town office.”
