“As gastroenterology is the main treatment area at the Zheleznovodsk spa center, it was decided to create such a unique monument, which is both funny and vital,” said Alexander Kharchenko, the director of the center.

“There is no kitsch or obscenity, it is a successful work of art,” Alexander Kharchenko told The Associated Press. “An enema is almost a symbol of our region.”

Lordy. I thought some town in Tejas owned the rights to that symbol!

In case you’re sketchy about the location, it’s just off the M-29 north of Pyatigorsk. Looks like there is an airport in nearby Mineral’nye Vody. It’d be a good reason to burn up those Aeroflot frequent flyer miles.

The juxtaposition of children, balloons, and shapely nurses in a celebration of the enema bulb seems most peculiar and is a major source of conflict for my brain at many levels.
