Giant penis mural has to be painted over

A five-story mural of a big blue penis has to be painted over in Stockholm.  It was painted on the side of an apartment building and the locals in the surrounding neighborhood teamed up to get it removed.

The mural was only up for a week before complaints from the locals started flooding in.  The company that allowed the artist to paint the giant penis mural didn't know that the artist was going to paint a giant penis, but is going to let it stay up for a short amount of time so that some can enjoy it before it is painted over.
