There Goes The Neighborhood

Hmm, if you are going to move into a neighborhood and plonk a statue in your front yard, I suggest not  David and definitely not in Texas. The good folk of Abilene can’t believe their  luck when a family moved into  Lollipop Lane ( seriously!) and placed a statue of David in their front yard.  Problem? He’s goddam naked and you can see everything. One angry neighbor said “Some art needs to be left in the doggone museum,” Police say it isn’t illegal to have a naked statue on display and the owners of David say it’s just art! Hmm, you ain’t in Kansas anymore!

You gotta watch the video, friggin hilarious.

Why Is the Statue Of David’s Penis Uncircumcised?

OK loons, here’s a question for ya …. why is the statue of David’s penis uncircumcised? I know, I know, but it’s like the big friggin elephant in the room!  However I am currently researching Michelangelo’s chiseled piece and thought it strange that David (obviously Jewish) hadn’t been snipped. David, by the way, is the dude that slingshotted Goliath. Theories?

Psst If you look closely you will also notice that David’s head and hands are way too big for the rest of the body. That’s because the statue was intended to be plonked atop the cathedral. Michelangelo  accentuated the important parts so they could be visible by people from below. So why such a small penis?

It's a bit on the wee side too!

Hmm, and makes his penis even smaller!
