Wasilla H.S. embroiled in enormous genital sculpture controversy

Pin it

It's been a while since we last checked in with our friends way up north in Wasilla, Alaska, home of Sarah Palin and more meth than even Walter White would know what to do with. So it's good to see that they're still keeping things hilariously Northern Exposure-style wacky up there. 

Last month, the school unveiled a $100,000 piece of art (pictured above) that attempts to subtly represent the spirit of Wasilla's High mascot, The Warrior. According to the local newspaper Frontiersman, the sculpture is meant to evoke the school's soldierly image:

Emerging from the powerful stone form are two warrior shields encircled by glowing feathers. The bronze shield has a hand impression showing ‘good deeds.’ The aluminum shield has a flame symbol representing the ‘spark of inspiration.’ The stone form represents the strong material from which a warrior is made.

What are the students seeing instead? A great big symbol of a giant vagina. 

The giggling and "one-liners" got to the point where the faculty was forced to do the only reasonable thing: Cover it with a few tarps and take time to "educate the students and parents about the art and its ties to Wasilla High and its Warrior mascot." If I know the maturity level of high schoolers, that means the tarps will easily come down within a week. No doubt they'll be sick of vagina jokes by then.
