The Andie Summers Show

While the city of Philadelphia was busy greasing the poles in the event of an Eagles victory in Super Bowl LVII, one neighboring township had a different, stickier idea.

Cheltenham Township in Montgomery County took a tongue-in-cheek approach to would-be revelers. On Facebook, Cheltenham Township Emergency Services posted a photo of one of their workers on a cherry-picker with a can of adhesive – not grease.

The post reads:

While our neighbor to the south are greasing their street light poles, we have an alternate plan. Today in preparation for the Eagles win on Sunday, the Township will begin Operation Fly Trap. Public Works employees will be coating all light poles within the Township with Super Glue. During the Eagles celebration, those persons climbing poles will hang out with us until Monday morning before being removed and charged with illegal use of a pole. We realize this is a sticky situation, as we want you to celebrate, but we also want you to be safe. #FlyEaglesFly (see what we did there?)

Scroll down to see the photo, but first the comments are hilarious:

  • Rich Carragher

    Whatever taxpayer dollars were used in taking those photos was well worth it. 🤣

  • Tom Dougherty

    I’m sticking around for the comment

  • Rachel Schwartz

    Or the clothes will be hanging out and you’ll have people to charge with indecent exposure

  • Dave Waldron

    Forget about sticking, you can high off this stuff! Learned it the hard way years ago… 🤢

  • Monica Zelesnick

    omg the poor wildlife that’ll get caught and suffer

  • Don't worry, Monica. They're just having fun...

    No birds, squirrels, animals, or even light poles will be hurt by our humor……yes, this is humor. 🙂 🙂 🙂
