Even better: Copper John was originally made of wood in 1821.

Apparently he's got a lot less wood now!

Maybe it's for his own protection...

There are some people (and some among them are professionals) who would consider the irresistible compulsion to castrate a statue as somewhat... aberrant.

From the first link:
"Some correction officers aren't pleased with the reduction, and are donning shirts in protest."

I really want to know what these protest shirts say on them (as it is written, it sounds like a really lame protest).

From the 2nd link:
"Save Copper John's Johnson"

Seems like a worthy cause to me.

But would you be willing to say it's your *favorite* penis, TungstenChef?

It says they're donning shirts in protest, tpl. I believe that means that previously, they were shirtless.

Anyone found before and after pictures?
