This weird seagull statue (or would you call it a boobie?) resides in New Bedford, MA and the question of whether to keep the statue is pitting the town residents against each other.  

There is one petition by a Raymond C. to remove the statue and a competing petition for Raymond to remove his petition. 

While the original petition argues the statue makes the town look silly, the competing petition says it's as much a part of the town as any other art:

"New Bedford is so full of art and out of the ordinary things it would be silly to remove this glorious statue." .... "This man is just clearly uncomfortable by the female form and hates the art."

An update to the statue removal petition clarified itself after that backlash with, "I never said it wasn't art, but it is bad art." 

The creator of this statue, Donna Dodson, has done many others, like this panda.

The so-called "Seagull Cinderella" as she titled the New Bedford piece was installed in 2012.

People of London were absolutely horrified to see these buttons with the words "Tube chat?" popping up all over the place. The source, according to Mashable, turned out to be a man named Jon Dunne and his wife, both from small towns in America and now living in London. He told them, "I thought it would be way more fun [but] it was sort of brutal." 

No kidding, the response to #tubechat has been hilarious but not very welcoming.
