image for Nude Statue at Jackson Memorial Raises Eyebrows, Hackles
Another statue, this one of a little boy, scrapped in anticipation of just this sort of reaction.

LOS ANGELES, CA - The fountain installed at deceased pop icon Michael Jackson's gravesite has many outraged, saying a life-size statue of the King of Pop on display at the site is "highly inappropriate" and "tasteless."

The statue, carved from marble in the Baroque style and standing nearly 6' tall, features Jackson naked except for an unbuttoned shirt and a single glove, poised on one leg with outstretched arms, hair and shirt blowing back as if he were about to take flight.

If that wasn't enough, say concerned citizens, the Jackson likeness is "pissing into a pool," a steady stream of water flowing from the statue's penis into the circular basin in front of him.

Many have indicated that, considering allegations against the star, the statue is in very poor taste. Most, however, just think it's "a little creepy."

Make The San Francisco Onion's day - give this story five thumbs-up (there's no need to register, the thumbs are just down there!)
