Sculpture of Giant 'Cloud' Causes Public Outcry

Everyone sees something different in clouds, but people living near Auckland, New Zealand, are seeing only one thing: male genitalia. 

Sculptor Gregor Kregar created “Transit Cloud" an aluminum mesh sculpture that hangs on the facade of a train station, eight meters above ground in the town of New Lynn. Meant to convey a cloudily form, residents of the working class area are complaining that the sculpture is an obvious phallic symbol. They do not want it in their town, basically, and certainly don't want their children playing in and around it. Or that is what they are telling local media and politicians.
