Mayor In Belgium Issues Apology After Town’s Custom Christmas Lights Ended Up Looking A Little Like A Penis

A Belgian mayor has admitted to local residents that he did not intentionally set out to make this year’s Christmas decorations appear quite so “phallic”. The new Christmas lights, made using the colours of the city, were recently installed in the municipality of Oudenburg in the Belgian province of West Flanders and several local boroughs.  The mayor said, “Our technical department designed them. If we had bought them, it would have cost us around three times as much. So we chose the city’s colours and put a blue tip on top because we thought a flame was cliche.” However, it was not long before residents realised the new festive decor looked more like male genitalia than anything to do with Christmas. Mayor Anthony Dumarey said, “Of course, it was not our intention to install Christmas lights that remind people of a penis.” He added, “But we do see the lighter side of the incident.”
