7/3/2003: Hauling ass



Hauling ass -- that was part of the official caption given here, a terrible pun but one that maybe makes the whole thing work. Anyway, here they bring Roman God Vulcan's lower half to join up to its knees in Birmingham, Alabama. It's statue restoration happening on top of Red Mountain.

The colorful backstory on this from "Roadside America"

He was finally shipped back to Birmingham in 1937 and erected on Red Mountain the very mountain from which his iron body had been mined.
Does that mean he's all iron? Even his balls?

They should bring back the Coke. Safety torch just doesn't do it for me.

" the virtual buckle of the bible belt "
just rolls off the tongue.

Amazing

A sixty-foot-tall statue of a naked male ass. If this isn't part of the 'homosexual agenda' I don't know what is.

Just surprised that it should so blatantly rear its ugly head in Birmingham, Alabama, of all places.

Getting 'hammered' there must mean something different.

How about the real one?

In other Alabama monument news, this monument of the ten commandments sits just outside an Alabama courthouse. Sadly, it's been ordered to be destroyed, as it violates the first amendment.

Destroyed?

It's the personal property of the chief justice. It's been ordered that he remove it from a government facility, not destroy it.

Safety torch? Vulcan was god of the forge, right? Only two things he should have in his hand: A hammer, or Venus's ass.



Torrere  Monday Jul 7 09:51 PM

Vulcan is god of the forge! Of course his balls are composed of an advanced metal alloy!
