This bull statue’s giant dick is pissing everyone off

By all accounts, Hurricane was just an quiet small town in Utah until March 14, when Barista’s restaurant owner Stephen Ward erected a sign featuring a massively endowed bull statue. Now the good people of Hurricane are upset at being confronted by the bull’s massive genitalia, especially since the statue is swinging pipe across the street from a high school.

“It looks terrible,” Hurricane City resident Denise Mackelprang told St. George News. “I could see the bull, but not the details of the sex. It’s R-rated to me, especially with young school kids seeing it and talking about it.”

However, some amateur art critics are less up in arms about being confronted by a bull’s dick and more concerned with the genitalia being accurately rendered.

“The giant bull is awesome,” Angel Janell told local media. “The giant, weird testicles and penis are not even anatomically correct … that is my issue.”

You are not alone, Janell. We all know how upsetting “weird testicles” can be.

Over 600 citizens have already petitioned for the refusal to renew Ward’s business license and an employee was assaulted the day the sign went up. However, Ward remains undaunted, promising to sue the town in response to it refusing to upgrade his limited liquor license in January, despite the fact that the town shot his request down because the restaurant was too close to a school That isn’t stopping Ward from assuming that the town has a personal vendetta against him.

“The reason they don’t like the bull is because they know it’s beautiful and amazing and it’s going to get me even more business, which it already has,” Ward told local media. “It has nothing to do with the genitalia. If you drive around the LaVerkin area, there’s (a business with) a horse’s weenie hanging out that’s 15 inches long. I’ve never heard anyone say anything about that. It’s not the bull; it’s me.”

According to UPI, Hurricane City Planning Director Toni Foran did approve the sign before it was installed, but that approval was based on a three inches tall, so it definitely didn’t do justice to all the pipe that bull is swinging. Still, it will be interesting how this conflict escalates should the good people of Hurricane continue to give Ward and his bull a hard time.

If it’s any comfort,  it seems like Ward’s statue is lasting longer than the devil statue with the raging erection that popped up in Vancouver last year.
