You know it pays to shop around; mine only cost 8 900.
The Italian newspaper La Republicca reported yesterday that the country's Prime Minister, Silvio Berlusconi, has forked out 70,000 euros to add a new phallus to a statue to Mars which he has displaying in his office.
Traditional restoration techniques were apparently ignored in the procedure, possibly coz they were not expensive enough, which was expressly commissioned by the Italian leader.
The statue, on loan from the Terme di Diocleziano museum, now has a new body part which, according to architect Mario Catalano, can be added and removed as required.
Just like mine.
