Well, there are some things that are left better unsaid than said...or seen, in this case.

I recall seeing a bronze bust of a bare-breasted woman in the Museum of Natural History in NYC. The dark bronze was similarly polished bright on the bosom by countless touches.

Ah Dublin! That statue in the street is known locally as "The tart with the cart". There's another in Dublin's streets, of some ladies "of a certain age" standing around gabbing while carrying their shopping bags, who are called "the hags with the bags".

Then there was a monstrous, grotesque figure of a nude female in a running horizontal fountain, named either the "floozie in a Jacuzzi", or the "who-er in the sewer" by the local wags, and a statue of Oscar Wilde, posed on a cliff, that was christened "the fag on the crag".

I heard they finally got that monstrosity of "the who-er in the sewer" out of Dublin, but they got a new landmark to replace her. There is now a tall spike of a tower in O'Connell Street, near the River Liffey, to replace the Nelson Pillar that some of the lads took a bit of gelignite to. The Freudian symbolism of that tall structure did not escape those most literate Dubliners, who dubbed the new addition "the stiffy by the Liffey".

My wife and I spent less than a week in Dublin, after spending time with relatives in Mayo and Kerry. We had the good fortune of my wife's cousin, a native Dubliner, as our guide.

CW3 Harvey Keck Two of my granddaughters make the trip at least once a year. They say it's the only way to get through the rest of the year.
