In honor of Cinco de Mayo, "seven bored San Fernando Valley women" have created a disturbing variation on the piñata: bare papier maché torsos stuffed with "gender-specific" goodies. It's not the nudity that's disturbing, it's this: "We’ll leave it to you to dissect the unpleasant conceptual and/or Freudian repercussions of swatting at a limbless and decaptitated naked torso while clutching a big stick. We just think they’re kind of cool." (Fleshbot via Boing Boing)
