Watch: Texas town angry over nude statue of David

Pin it

You know how some people decorate their lawns with adorable garden gnomes or tacky pink flamingos? Well, one Texan decided to take the classy route and place a reproduction of Michelangelo's "David" outside his house instead. Rather than admire the view, his neighbors are pretty pissed off over the anatomically impressive nude figure.

"It's right there!", one concerned mom exclaimed on a local news report, referring to its penis of course, making it seem as if a five-foot dildo was on display. But as it turns out, if you don't talk to your kids about penises, they'll learn about them from Art History 101. My favorite part of the local-news piece, however, is the bright green leaf they place over David's nether region, which just draws more attention to it. I'm sure that's exactly what Michelangelo had in mind.
