New roadside attraction's a cover-up. It seems someone complained about nude classical-style statuary at a garden center because the statutes were visible from the road:
… the statues weigh as much as 500 pounds each and are an ordeal to move. So owners Angie Langford and Pam Gregory came up with a different approach to customer service.
Nearly a dozen concrete statues are sporting crimson velvet two-piece sarongs.
I suppose this explains why people got so worked up about the Janet Jackson thing. No, actually, it doesn't explain it…it's just consistent with it.
