French ultra-conservatives are pretty upset that there's a giant [snip] in the middle of Place Vendome, says Gawker.
The artist behind the 78-foot inflatable foreign object, Paul McCarthy, calls it a tree. In fact, "Tree" is the piece's official name.

Unfortunately, they're not the only ones who took umbrage with the ambiguously sexual sculpture. On Thursday, the artist was attacked by an unknown assailant while installing "Tree."
The director of FIAC, the Contemporary Art Fair, which is hosting the sculpture, says the attack was regrettable and not representative of France as a whole, but that her office has received complaints that McCarthy was corrupting and misusing the “sacred symbol” of the Christmas tree, according to ArtNet.
Personally, from first glance it is hilarious and the fact it is in France makes it even more satirical. His perversion of the 'Christmas Tree' has left many in the general area very upset though, I wonder what Santa would say?
