Right when you leave the El Paso airport, you come across this absolutely enormous statue of Juan de Oñate y Salazar (y un sorteo de galletas…sheesh! what a name!!) on a bucking stallion. You don’t even have to have an interest in sculptures of large animal penises to notice it. It smacks you right in the face as you drive by.
Every time I tell myself, “Don’t look. Just don’t look. It’s too damned early in the morning, and you are slightly hungover. You will toss your cookies for sure.” And then I look.
UGH! Why did I post this?! Now I am forced to see a slideshow of those giant testicles over and over. Why is the horse’s weenie tied up? (I KNOW, mmkay? Just let’s not go there.) I thought I would purge the nightmare by posting (that usually helps me). I was wrong this time.
