Norway’s Destroyed Penis Rock Rises Again

It was streamed live.

A couple of weeks ago one or more vandals destroyed Trollpikken, a rock formation that resembles a phallus and is beloved by locals in Eigersund, Norway, around 200 miles southwest of Oslo.

Undeterred, residents started a crowdfunding campaign to rebuild the rock, and eventually raised 226,000 kroner (around $27,000). On Friday, the broken chunk of rock was raised and reattached to its former anatomical glory.

The work was important enough to be livestreamed for the world to see:

According to the Associated Press, it will take around a week for the iron wedges and concrete to set, but that once they do, the rock will once again be safe to climb onto. Long live Trollpikken.
