Famous Soccer Player Cristiano Ronaldo Honored With Awkward Boner Statue

Famed Portuguese soccer player- er footballer Cristiano Ronaldo is so revered in his home country that there is even a museum dedicated to him.  The captain of the Portugal National Team was definitely getting a full salute at the dedication ceremony of a statue depicting him in his home town of Funchal, Portugal. The former FIFA Player of The Year posed for photos and seemed pleased with the well-endowed depiction; what guy wouldn’t be?

The hard sculpture- it is made out of bronze- was unveiled this past weekend where onlookers got an eyeful. It’s not clear if the artist intended it to be a finely detailed work even down to including Ronaldo’s jock strap?  Or maybe it’s meant to say that the handsome athlete scores on the field and off the field? Either way to everyone else it looks like a statue with a giant boner.

“So is the statue 100% life size?”

I imagine they ordered this from a small local shop in town and if we went there, it would be a bunch of statues with bulges in the pants and if we asked the sculptor ‘What’s up with all the boners?’ he would stare at us blankly as he moved out from behind the counter to reveal himself rocking a giant package bulge beneath his own trousers. “What do you mean?”
