Man Erects Replica of "The David" on Lawn; Pisses Off Neighbors

New, 1 comment

In the quiet Texas town of Abilene, which has adorably named streets like "Sugarberry" and "Cindarella," a man has ruffled feathers by erecting a replica of The David on his front lawn. Of course, this is not the first time some overzealous chap has gone a little overboard with the work of Michelangelo, but all Renaissance supremacy and greatness aside, this guy's neighbors are none too pleased that the genitals of David greet them every time they drive down the block. And apparently the neighbor kids are asking, "Mom, what is that?" The homeowners maintain the statue is "just art."
