Hard to imagine this front page screamer from the Sunday Territorian of Darwin, Australia, appearing in a major paper here in the U.S., even the New York Post:
LIGHTNING STRIKES ICONIC STATUE LEAVING ONLY THE BREASTS BEHIND
Here’s the opening of the tawdry tale, written by Ellie Turner:
A SERPENTINE lightning strike has “blown the tits” off one man’s iconic tribute to Territory women. Literally.
Stonemasonry boss Tom Finlay, 48, was standing 50m from his voluptuous hand-carved Venus de Milo when a flash of white light and an “almighty kaboom” sent stone flying through the air.
Mr Finlay said he was amazed her 30kg breasts had survived the phenomenon.
His sculptural song may be ended, but the mammaries linger on.
