Armless Fun

Police in the US state of New Jersey have ordered a family to cover up their snow sculpture of the famous nude Venus de Milo after a neighbour complained. When given the option of covering the sculpture up or knocking it down, she dressed it in a bikini top and sarong.
Eliza Gonzalez sculpted the figure with her son and daughter on her front lawn following a snowstorm.
While many praised their creation, a police officer told them a neighbour had found it too risqué.
If Mrs Gonzalez is wondering which of her neighbours it was that found the sculpture so arousing, might I suggest it is the one that has the well worn copy of ‘Boxing Helena’ in their video collection.
