What the hell were they thinking?

I hope they get sued into the floor for this dreadful shoop.

NOTHING TO SEE HERE. IGNORE RAMA SET.

The Italian government has copyright on the use of images of David. Maybe you should have actually read the link I provided?

Did Michelangelo give them permission for that?

Michelangelo doesn't own the statue.

What's funny to me is that:
1. They had to cover the penis, degrading the "work of art".
2. The statue is Italian made by an Italian and yet they're promoting proud american made.  Kind of a mixed message.

They should have used lady liberty.  But then again, that's French made.
If you are going to DebOOonK an expert then you have to at least provide a source with credentials of equal or greater relevance. Even then, it merely shows that some experts disagree with each other.

It is odd you can show a 6 foot sniping rifle but not a statue's penis in America. You are a very strange country.

In America we believe that a penis will scar children for life while a gun I something they pretend to play with.

Shockingly enough, Italian law doesn't actually apply to America.

Michelangelo doesn't own the statue.

But apparently the government does and can claim rights to it. That's what's disgusting here.

Why is it disgusting that the statue is owned by the people of Italy? I can't think of anyone else better to own it.
