Puppet boobs turn you on? Then hope you don't live in Colorado Springs
Are you getting a rise out of this?
Thank goodness Lamar Advertising is safeguarding the morality of Colorado Springs residents. Otherwise, chaste locals might be caught in the embarrassing situation of sprouting an erection caused by a puppet.
Granted, that puppet, a character from the play Avenue Q, is named Lucy the Slut. But even though her cleavage is fabric and fluff, not quivering flesh, Lamar refused to use the poster seen here. Company exec Jeff Moore explained the decision in a Colorado Springs Gazette report like so: "If I have to explain it to my four-year old or my grandmother, we don't put it up."
Actually, there's a good chance grandma's cleavage looks bumpy and furry, too.
