Enema of the State

I found this story  yesterday on MSNBC.com.  Now this is a story that really warms your very core and will have you gushing!

Evidently there is this spa town in the Russian Caucasus mountains that is famous for “enemas”.  So famous that they commissioned (and erected) an 800 lb bronze statue of an Enema Bulb.  The artist had a definite sense of whimsy when designing it as the bulb is being hoisted on the backs of three Botticelli-esque cherubs.

Here’s a picture of the statue’s dedication:

If only it were a fountain too!

But I say why NOT glorify this handy-dandy invention?  I know it has immeasurably helped MY social life!  My mother always told me:  Before the party guests arrive, you should make sure the basement’s clean!

Two of my favorite quotes from the article are as follows:

“There is no kitsch or obscenity, it is a successful work of art,” Alexander Kharchenko told The Associated Press. “An enema is almost a symbol of our region.”

A banner declaring: “Let’s beat constipation and sloppiness with enemas” — an allusion to a line from “The Twelve Chairs,” a famous Soviet film comedy — was posted on one of the spa’s walls.

I hear that after the unveiling everyone celebrated with warm mineral water and chocolate fondue.

    A true example of how truth is often stranger than fiction. Great story about the clean basement, too!

    Mark 🙂

    Making fun of those Russians for having a little good clean fun. I wonder if the cherubs are allegorical or if that is what the spa workers look like?

    my party favors are always bite-sized Baby Ruth’s, naturally

    My gay dad never mentioned the basement. He always said that you should “always clean the apartment from foyer to kitchen”.

    “And mow the lawn?” I would ask.

    Enema pride. That’s a new one.

    Is that photo from the next John Waters film?

  14. That is hilarious… Now I have Jack Nicholson stuck in my head repeating “This TOWN needs an enema”

    Right up there with Menneken Pis. Maybe a thematic scatological tour of Europe is in order.
