FOX Station’s Interview With Traffic Cone Gets Ugly

By Kevin Eck 

You have to marvel at WTXF‘s ability to tap into the universal (is hatred too strong a word?) for potholes and the crews who seem to fill them only during rush hour.

It seems a Philadelphia road crew paved over a traffic cone, leaving its base eternally vulnerable to passing cars.

In a nod to the SNL skit “The Coneheads,” the cone was given a Dan Aykroyd-ish voice which told Mike Jerrick, morning co-anchor for the Philadelphia FOX owned station, it was from France.


The cone then lashed out at the streets department, “If I did not fear incarceration from human authority figures,” said the cone. “I would terminate your life functions by applying sufficient pressure to your blood skull as to force its collapse.”
