Locals in Gothenburg, Sweden are less than impressed with the latest edition to one of their public parks that sprang up overnight after a fresh batch of snow visited the city.
People in and around King's Park in the city were upset to see that some pranksters had taken the opportunity to draw a giant penis in the snow on one of the parks frozen lakes. You'd think the drawing would be easily gotten rid of but unfortunately residents are just going to have put up with it until the temperatures rise because when park officials went to clean the drawing away, the ice on the lake began to creak and they were unable to reach the drawing for fear of plunging into the lake.
"They judged that the ice would not stay put. They did not dare to go out on to the moat and consequently the artwork is there until thawing weather returns," Darko Brankovic, director of Gothenburg's Parks and Landscape Administration (Park- och naturförvaltningens organisation och ledning) told Swedish tabloid Aftonbladet.

The above photo of the officials trying to clear the image was caught by 79-year-old local Åke Lindgren, who is one of the people finding the funnier side of the situation. "I have explained the story many, many times now!" Lindgren told The Local. "But it's funny! The penis is still there, I can still see it. But it is still a bit dangerous right now."
