Sadly, Cock and Balls Lights Are as Real as Santa

According to The Londonist, reports and images of some of the most masculine Christmas decorations imaginable have been making their way around the UK and even on down to West Virginia. Unfortunately, these cock and balls lights are something of an urban legend — a trick of perspective or clever editing job, reminiscent of Christmas pranks of years past, like the quite clearly unreal “cock-up” in Brighton memorialized in the video seen here.

Bromley, the city the cock and balls lights have been purported to be illuminating, has not yet even strung up its holiday decorations.  That won’t happen until November 29th, according to town officials, and presumably will be somewhat less phallic in nature.
