In perhaps the most tragic news since the giant golden Mega Mao was unceremoniously unseated from a random field in Henan, a pair of enormous sculptures of two very happy, fat, naked and pink men have been removed from the side of a building in Jinan.
Sadly, the sculptures only made it seven months. Local authorities removed them earlier this month because they “violated construction rules.”
That construction finished last December when pics of the two nude fatsos first went viral on Chinese social media. Their creator, surnamed Wang, named the pair “Happy Fatties.” Wang explained that the men were simply too darn happy to have remembered to put their clothes on. He hoped that the sculptures would help people to be more comfortable with their own bodies.
But Jinan officials have now killed their joy. The sculptures will presumably be quickly replaced with ads showing two very serious, skinny, not quite naked men/women.
Goodnight, sweet princes.
