Leaning Tower of Dallas after Demolition Fail

DALLAS (AP) — Italy has its Leaning Tower of Pisa. And now Dallas has a rival leaning tower. In this case, the “Leaning Tower of Dallas” came into being when an 11-story building that was being imploded failed to fully implode. The core of the building survived — and that’s when the online jokes and photos began. Many, inspired by shots of tourists pretending to hold up the tower in Pisa, took selfies with the Dallas building. And an online petition implored officials to leave the building as a landmark — even if it’s just for photo ops. But that won’t happen. The company doing the demolition says it will use a wrecking ball to get the leaning Dallas tower to lean all the way to the ground.
