Monument to enema treatments opened in a southern Russian spa resort
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

MOSCOW - A monument to a procedure many people would rather not think about has been unveiled at a spa in the a southern Russian city.

The 363-kilogram bronze syringe bulb held by three angels honours the enema. It was unveiled Wednesday at the Mashuk-Akva Term spa in the Caucasus Mountains community of Zheleznovodsk. Spa director Alexander Kharchenko says there is "no kitsch or obscenity" involved.

He calls the monument a "successful work of art" that pays tribute to what is "almost a symbol of our region."

The area is known for dozens of spas where enemas with water from mineral springs are routinely administered to treat digestive and other complaints.

Kharchenko, 50, said the monument cost $42,000 and was installed in a square in front of his establishment.

A banner declaring: "Let's beat constipation and sloppiness with enemas" - an allusion to a line from "The Twelve Chairs," a famous Soviet film comedy - was posted on one of the spa's walls.

One would think that with all the borscht they eat they wouldn't need enemas.
