Norway police has vowed to catch the vandals who chopped off a rock formation that resembled an erect penis. Trollpikken (loosely, the “troll dick”) is a popular destination in Eigersund, Norway for hikers and climbers.
Last Saturday a climber, Olav Magne Egebakken who was running past the formation noticed he “troll” was no longer aroused. “Someone has vandalised the rock formation undoubtedly” said Egebakken.
“The evidence is there and we’ve got the pictures. We will question possible witnesses soon,” said acting police chief in Eigersund, Magnar Sandstøl, Whoever vandalized the rock could face up to six years in prison, but so far there are no suspects.
“Its simply very sad and we lost a significant landmark”, lamented Eigersund’s Mayor. He said it had been “created by nature,” but was now “sadly destroyed by humans.”
He had hoped the formation could be used to draw more tourists to the region. However, there is a hope and all may not be lost.
Contractor Sverre Garpestad told that with the aid of helicopters, it would be possible to drill new supports, add bolts and mortar, and replace the fallen rock. “We have the Viagra it takes” he quipped.
Now all Garpestad needs is the money for the task and a crowdfunding site in Norway has already raised about $20,000. They need another $10,000 to meet the target set by activists to repair the formation
