Tourists who look at Plymouth Rock and go "Huh! That's it?" can now look up and see a hillside sign reading "Hollywood East."
The Plymouth Bulletin reports that Plymouth County Commissioners agreed (2-1) to put the sign in front of the town's 19th-century courthouse as a way of convincing tourists to walk up the hill to downtown Plymouth from the waterfront, no doubt in a desperate bid to shake off the cobwebs of ennui that envelope them as soon as they realize the Rock is really just a rock, and despite the fact that Plymouth is not yet actually Hollywood East, since developers have yet to build their movie studio in town, which means that if they do climb up the hill, all they're going to do is get really annoyed when they realize there's no movie stuff at the top, just another Ye Olde New Englande Towne.
UPDATE: The sign will be coming down after this weekend. Passions are aflame in Plymouth; veterans are outraged at "the lack of sensitivity" the sign shows a veterans' memorial at the site.
