back to article London Mayor shows off GIANT BLUE COCK in busy square

Mayor of London Boris Johnson has unzipped the flies on the latest work of art to be commissioned for Trafalgar Square's fourth plinth: a giant blue cock that proudly stands at 4.72 metres high. The unkempt, shock-headed Tory couldn't resist a bit of willy-waving in the direction of Prime Minister David Cameron either, by sagely …

A long way to go

> poking fun at the fact that a woman had created a male image.

Because men *never* create female images. Oh, wait ...

(maybe this means that all straight male porn, most advertising and pretty much every nude portrait has been completely misunderstood and is really just an ironic commentary?)

She's a German poking fun, maybe their sense of humour is a little different to ours.

It's good to know that London now has a massive cock in the middle of our great capital city. Oh wait. Doesn't someone fill that role already ... ?

And being a Tory, he is a massive Blue cock....

I thought it was a celebration of Spurs. Ideally needs a cannon that's one place above it ;)

Surely you mean a couple of Manchester's, a Chelsea and an Arsenal above it....

I really should hate Boris as I am against everything that his politics stand for, but when he comes out with stuff like:

"This beautiful sculpture: if you were to Google it in a few years’ time you would probably not be able to find it because that search engine would probably collapse at the behest of the Prime Minister."

you just can't help liking him a little bit. That still doesn't mean I have any respect for him though.

I really should have loved Ken, what with the labour party, newts and all. As it was, he was the reason for my first ever vote for a tory.

I quite like Boris Johnson much more than Cameron anyway. (I hope he becomes the next leader of the Conservative party).

It won't stay blue for long

Not after the other winged inhabitants of Trafalgar Square have perched on it for a while.

Did she sign it?

It's customary for artists to put their John Hahn/Cock on the work.

Frenchy stuff coming up

Just to let you know, the standard joke in France relating to the "Why the cock is the national symbol".

Because it is the only animal, that even while standing both feet in the shit, continues to sing.

Et maintenant en Francais

"Parce que c'est le seul animal qui, même quand il a les pieds dans la merde, continue à chanter."

Lady Hamilton and Nelson's Column

The idea that Lady Hamilton was responsible for the erection of Nelson's Column in the background is apocryphal. This was in fact the work of Grissell and Peto.

I thought Lady Hamilton was regularly responsible for... oh, you mean the one in Trafalgar square. As you were, then.

Hooker in Dudley...

When I suggested you do this story in the comments of the "Hooker in Dudley..." article I thought that I was being ironic —oh well...

Re: Hooker in Dudley...

You seriously though that the headline writers at el reg, (who can manage to make an innuendo out of a story about Microsoft supporting Linux in the cloud,) would be able to resist writing about a massive blue cock?

And a sculpture of a rooster.

One way PM's anti pron law could fail...

It's not just Cockerels which could fall foul like in this instance but our dearly beloved pubs!

I know of one local to home which is actually called "The Cock" and if that pub's website got blocked because of the name (it dates from the 17th century) then it could go the way that the Australian's equivalent did initially... when they blocked a dentist's website :-S

As for Scunthorpe, I remember when url blockers first appeared in the 90's (was working in local government at the time). Anyhow Scunthorpe's own council blocked their own website from their employees - for obvious reasons.

Beer icon for the danger to certain pubs...

I'll tell you what - having been unfortunate enough to witness the director's cut of Watchmen, I've already seen enough blue cock for several lifetimes.

An offence against nature ..

Surly it should be a blood spattered headless chicken?....seriously though, are there any urban activists out there with a chainsaw that'll put this ludicrous monstrosity out of its misery..we can video it and put it on the web...if anyone objects call it performance art.
