Staff at Chessington’s Sea Life centre in England have given a topless mermaid statue a makeover after visitors to the aquatic attraction paid a little too much attention to her bare assets.
And here I thought Europeans were more liberal about nudity than North Americans. It seems Canadians have Londoners beat, though. Since 1996, it’s been legal for women to go topless in public in Ontario.
“We hadn’t noticed quite how buxom Sally was until we clocked young boys, and not so young boys, spending a lot of time ogling her in the walk through ocean tunnel,” Justine Locker, Chessington’s Zoo Experience Manager, said according to WENN.com. ”None of us can avoid what is starring us straight in the face, so it’s time for a cover-up. After all, it’s summer, the perfect time to be sporting a designer bikini!”
Do you think the mermaid statue is too steamy for tourists? Is the bikini an improvement or simply ridiculous?
