This Week's Sign of the Downfall

Rest in Penis

Catarina Pérez, of Misantla, Mexico, passed away at 99 years old last year, and when she did, her family honored her dying wish: to erect a six-foot-tall, 600lb penis on her grave. Álvaro Limòn, Catarina’s grandson, said his grandmother was fascinated with penises throughout her life, and that she called all her family members “vergas,” which translates loosely into “cocks.” Álvaro also said that most townspeople loved the statue, but the local conservatives hated it, because they aren’t used to seeing big penises, which could be true for the overly conservative everywhere.
