French Town Replaces Patriotic Female Statue - Because her Breasts are Too BIG

A small French town has replaced a patriotic statue in its town hall - because its breasts were deemed too big.

The mayor of Neuville-en-Ferrain, in northern France, swapped the busty model with a more modest replacement after locals in the town 'started to gossip'.

The terracotta bust of Marianne - the traditional female embodiment of the French Republic in a Phrygian cap - was an original work by a local artist, installed in 2007 at Neuville-en-Ferrain's town hall.

The bust was based on that of French Actress Laetitia Casta.

I guess the mayor felt you could have too much of a good thing. Perhaps, in retrospect, I shouldn't have used the word "felt"?
