The Hyde Park Obelisk has never looked so… safe.
If you’re not a fan of male body parts and prophylactics – in particular an enormous, pink condom – then you might want to stay away from the corner of Bathurst and Elizabeth Streets in Sydney this evening.
For there, in all its glory, is an enormous phallus/condom, adorning the Hyde Park Obelisk and leaving no-one in any doubt that this weekend is Mardi Gras.
The pic was sent to New Matilda by reader BJ Malparida.
“It’s very Mardi Gras and a good reminder to practice safe sex,” BJ noted.
Indeed. It’s also rather spectacular.
You can check out the official Mardi Gras events here… and New Matilda will have a photo essay of the parade for Sunday’s digest.
Until then… happy Mardi Gras!
