Russian Spa's Giant Tribute to Enema

A health spa in Russsia has just unveiled its tribute to a medical procedure it administers there routinely: the enema!

"We administer enemas nearly every day," said Alexander Kharchenko, the head of the sanatorium which specializes in treating illnesses of the digestion tract.

"So, I thought, why not use our sense of humor and give it a monument," he said of the bronze statue that stands about 1.5 meters high.

Local artist Svetlana Avakova, who designed the monument which cost around 1 million roubles ($42,000), said Botticelli's classic painting Venus and Mars had given her the inspiration to tackle the tricky subject.

From the article.

"Likewise, an enema is an unpleasant procedure as many of us may know. But when cherubs do it, it's all right."

When cherubs administer enemas -- the next to last sign of the apocalypse.

Since I posted a silly short story on my blog,, about a girl who lives in a town where everyone loves enemas, all kinds of my traffic has been people searching for enema stories.

Now you shall be in the same boat. Have fun with this one.
