The Philadelphia Police have gone to extreme lengths to prevent fans from climbing up street poles during celebrations. Last week, Philly PD tried using greasing up poles with crisco oil but that backfired when fans just climbed them anyways while chanting “fuck that grease”.
Police are no longer using crisco oil this time around but instead are going to use grease oil which is apparently pretty nasty and hard to clean off.

With all the excitement of the big game, Philadelphia police are stepping up security for the city to make sure we all stay safe. With the Crisco not working as well as they thought it would after the last game. Police are using something new —something you’re not going to want all over you—gear oil.
Regular gear oil is like the consistency of molasses. The guys over at Evans Gulf on Spring Garden know all about gear oil. They use it almost every day at the garage. They’re not big fans of the gooey substance.
“It’s thick. You can’t get it off your clothes. It smells and really tough to clean up.”
Sources say police plan to use a form of gear oil instead of Crisco oil to grease poles along Broad Street and up in the Northeast for Sunday nights expected Eagles celebration.
Tom Flora says fans should be aware if you’re planning on wearing your favorite Birds jersey and scaling up a pole with this stuff on it. Well, good luck trying to clean your jersey.
If the Eagles win the Super Bowl I doubt any Eagles fans are going to give a fuck about getting grease oil all over them.
