Last Monday, when Katya Romanovskaya left her Moscow apartment for work, she discovered that her car had a giant phallus strapped to it with a metal chain. Upon further examination, she discovered that the shaft was made out of one tree trunk, the veins elaborately, carefully carved. Two other, smaller pieces of wood were attached to either side. It was hard to remove: the thing weighed well over 200 lbs.

There are going to be a lot of rules at the Sochi Olympics, as Russia and world athletes strive for tight security, but some of the strictest and strangest may come inside the bathroom. Canadian snowboarder Sebastien Toutant tweeted a photo this past weekend of a sign hanging inside the bathroom in the Sochi games.
No fishing in the toilets. That’s a good one to remember in loos around the world, Olympics fans.
