Rear reaction: Monroe statue shocks near church!





This news coming from Stanford Connecticut..

It’s a jarring sight for members of the First Congregational Church: The underwear-clad buttocks of Marilyn Monroe mooning the downtown parish.
A 26-foot Seward Johnson statue illustrating the star in her iconic pose from “The Seven Year Itch” was installed this week in Latham Park as part of the Stamford Downtown Special Services District’s “Art in Public Places” series that lasts through the summer.
But much like the subway grate stirred up her skirt, Monroe has created a whirlwind in just a few days in Stamford.
Lorri Tamburro, a lifelong Stamford resident, was disturbed when she visited the statue with her husband and watched children climbing up Monroe’s leg and looking up her skirt.
“I just find the position to be offensive,” she said. “It was, in my eyes, very disrespectful. I looked at it and I think because of what I saw with all these little kids looking up, the height is ruining it. It’s ruining beautiful Marilyn.”
Officials said that social media has now led to a handful of calls about the location of the iconic image. The article goes on to report that children are eating their picnic lunches under the statue of the skirt flowing in the wind.
