Now That's Something You Don't See Every Day

The Russian city of Zheleznovodsk is in the heart of that nation's health spa country apparently. The Mashuk-Akva Term spa decided to draw attention to the curative powers of one of their classic spa procedures by commissioning a statue of an 800 pound bronze enema syringe bulb lifted into position by three happy little angels. According to an AP reporter, who went all the way to the Caucasus Mountains to get to the bottom of this breaking story, the spa director declared, "An enema is almost a symbol of our region."

With that gigantic load off your mind you can head into the weekend with a sunny disposition and a smile on your face. It's just a service we provide here at Monkeydarts.

Photos are from the unveiling as gas-filled balloons lifted the covers away.

H/T to Don Luskin who beat us to this heartwarming tale from Mother Russia.
