4/21/2004: Lawn ornaments covered



Welcome to the G&L Garden Center in Hartsville Tennessee, where employees added sarongs to their lawn ornaments after a customer complained that all the nekkid bits were all visible and stuff. Concrete, sure, but still nekkid.

But the last laugh is with the Garden Center, as all the attention has sold them a ton of lawn ornaments.



Elspode  Wednesday Apr 21 01:26 PM

Shouldn't the complaining people just shop somewhere else instead of trying to make everyone else conform to their Puritanical whining?

In fact, they should start their own lawn ornament store, and just sell clothed ornaments to begin with. I'm sure they would be fabulously successful.

You know what?

People are fucking stupid.

it's really quite pathetic what some people will do for a (ahem) rise these days.

I didn't realize janet jackson came in concrete.

Didn't some Saudi dress up his garden statues in Beverly Hills a few years back?

he had them (life-sized) painted 'appropriately' -- as in anatomically correct

It adds a very Ashcroftesque touch to any garden decor.



Brigliadore  Wednesday Apr 21 07:51 PM

I hate all this political correctness shit that has been going on for a few years now. We cant have naked lawn ornaments because heaven forbid someone see some stone boobs. We have to change the Pirates of the Caribbean ride at Disney Land because the Pirates chasing the ladies is no PC (but we can leave in the auctioning of the "wenches"). I hate that so many people are willing to get offended over the smallest things. Get a fucking life people, everything doesn't need to be about how you feel about something.

Sorry, I'm done with my rant now.

Someone called the police to report a watchdog tied out in the August sun, with no water, at the Garden Center near here.
It was concrete.



Elspode  Wednesday Apr 21 11:57 PM

Yeah, but were it's balls showing? That's what is really important.



Relisnhoj  Thursday Apr 22 01:26 PM

People are intolerable

I would like to know where it states that people should be shielded from being offended. I saw a rude T-shirt on a customer today, should I threaten to sue him for offending me? No, that's life and people need to learn to deal with it.

I wonder what these objecting prudes do, when they tour places such as Museums with Greek statues? .. visit Bali or Indian temples full of carvings in cavorting copulation .. see animals indulging in very public displays of rampant sexuality .. (Daddy! What's that big red thing on that dog?? ) .. they must swoon in horror and have to go cleanse their infected minds ..

As someone has said .. ''Puritans are people who constantly suspect, that someone, somewhere, is actually having fun .. ''

I wonder how much they jacked up the prices by dressing them up...

Actually, he painted them in flesh tone. Now, I'm not completely sure, but my understanding is that this is what the Romans did and that much of the ancient Roman statuary we see today was once painted.

Of course, to our acquired tastes, painting a statue turns a tasteful marble nude into a tawdry naked woman.

He painted the statues to make them more lifelike. My understanding is that many Greek statues actually were painted.


From http://www.crystalinks.com/greekart.html
Quote:
The Greeks had plenty of beautiful marble and used it freely for temples as well as for their sculpture

They were not satisfied with its cold whiteness, however, and painted both their statues and their buildings.

Some statues have been found with their bright colors still preserved, but most of them lost their paint through weathering.

You know what's a small thing to get offended over? A garden center that wishes to do more business by accomodating the greatest possible number of customers. If some of them don't like exposed genetalia on their lawn sculptures, so be it. Why not cover them up? It's not like the government is forcing anyone's hand. It's just good business.

Take some of your own advice, Brigliadore: everything doesn't need to be about how you feel about something.
