The mayor of Oudenburg, Belgium is doing some apologizing after the decorations placed around the city ended up appearing too phallic for the tastes of some.
Intended to look like candles, the decorations consist of white staff of lights that stand straight up and erect at about three-feet tall. At the tip, the “flame” takes the form of a lighted blue ball. When put together, many of the city’s inhabitants find they look more like glowing penises, rather than candles. Mayor Anthony Dumarey says boner decorations weren’t the intent, but he’s willing “to see the lighter side of the incident.”
