Explicit snow sculpture amuses, shocks drivers

GLEN AUBREY, N.Y. (AP) - An explicit snow sculpture had some drivers on a rural road north of Binghamton doing a double-take this week.

The much larger-than-life icy depiction of male genitals was on display for several days in a front yard in Glen Aubrey.

One neighbor -- Bob Hodges -- told Binghamton radio station W-N-B-F that "it was the talk of the town for awhile."

Hodges said many people who saw the six-foot-tall display just chuckled.

But the artwork provoked a frosty reaction from one woman, who called the Broome County Sheriff's Department to complain about what she described as an "offensive" snow sculpture.
A deputy who went to the home was told by a mother that the unconventional display was the work of her sons.

While the mother said she wouldn't knock it down, she told the deputy she'd have her sons take care of it.

The sculpture was gone the next day.
