They say it doesn’t take much to draw a crowd in New York, but it takes even less in Jakarta, where thousands have turned up to look at two papayas shaped like human genitalia – one female, the other male. Not a couple of hundred people. Thousands. Lined up for a look. And they paid money. “Conservative values prevail in Indonesia, the world’s largest Muslim populated country,” says Yahoo!, “but appearances of unintentional erotica are more likely to generate amusement than embarrassment.” OK, there they are (click to enlarge). I don’t see it. To me, one papaya looks like a seashell, the other like an elf’s slipper. I want my money back.
