Someone in Gothenburg, Sweden, drew a large penis in the snow in Kungsparken (King's Park). But it wasn’t just snow -it was in the moat that was covered by ice that was then covered by snow. When park employees tried to erase the drawing, they saw the ice may be too thin to walk on. The park’s director told the local media that the image would remain until thawing weather. The drawing, and the park’s attempts to erase it, were photographed from a nearby building that has a great view of the park.
Meanwhile Anneli Hulthén, the city's Social Democrat mayor made her more opinionated thoughts clear when she skated into the debate on Twitter.
"I can't comment in a way that makes sense. Or, in plain language, who cares," she posted.
Apparently, no one thought about throwing a rock into the pond to break the ice, or spraying water on the drawing, or using a boat as a sledge. Any of those ideas would have solved the problem at hand.
But then this happened: The “snöpenis” has been obliterated. Emilian Sava used a long-handled brush to to sweep the snow on the moat and remove the artwork. Then he was overcome with regret when he found out how popular the original drawing had been. There's even a Facebook fan page for it. So he took a snowblower and recreated it in the park in a much larger version! A video is available in this story, although the link has a large NSFW image at the top. The video contains the drawings as well, so may be NSFW.
