In this Wednesday, June 18, 2008 hand out photo, nurses are seen, posing near a monument to enemas at Mashuk Akva-Term Sanatorium in the town of Zheleznovodsk, Russian Caucasus Mountains region. Alexander Kharchenko, director of the Russian spa says the world's first monument to enema treatments has been unveiled at the spa in the southern city of Zheleznovodsk. The bronze syringe bulb, weighs 800 pounds and is held by three angels.
I'm actually sort of speechless, I think it's the cherubim holding up the bulb that causes my brain to stop for a moment. I mean, I suppose I can see building a monument, even an 800 pound bronze monument to enemas. But Cherubim? And why isn't this in Japan (following the maxim that Japan produces 74% of the worlds 'weird shit')?
