Our next exhibit in The Nest’s crazy world of fucked up statuary takes us to the entrance of the St. Louis Zoo, and this somewhat troubling tribute to the African meerkat. The three critters are all standing proud and tall, and seem to have quite a joyful expression…. an expression that seems all the more suspicious once you look down and realize that they have no genitalia at all. How can you possibly be so tickled pink when, as Mitzi once said, you have nothing fun at all down there? Genetic mutations? Or perhaps the farmer’s wife caught up with these three blind meerkats and cut off something other than their tails? You decide…
oh, no! like the barbie and ken dolls )
Ha! I didn’t even think of that comparison!
They’ve made a choice to be gender neutral. Don’t judge the meerkats!
Oops! You’re right, and now I’ll have to issue them a formal apology….. while trying to hold back laughter.
oh my gosh – you are so right. Maybe the aliens got them too. Snorts and rolls with piggy laughter. XOXO – Bacon
I think it’s the iron-ness that ruins the sexuality. There IS such a thing as “too hard.”
Maybe the models for this sculpture were just under-endowed like that squirrel with the micro penis. If I didn’t have my glasses on, I probably would have thought that squirrel was sexless too!
Maybe they’re playing otter and wearing skin tight wet suits.
