Somebody Vandalized the “Dueling Tampons”

Famous Penn sculpture is besmirched.

The Daily Pennsylvanian reported Sunday night: “The ‘Covenant’ statue at 38th and Locust, commonly known as the Dueling Tampons, was graffitied with what seemed to be black spray paint sometime Saturday night or early Sunday morning. Someone used red spray paint to cover a portion of the graffiti this afternoon.”

A lot of jokes we could make here. In the interest of taste, we shall refrain — even though the Tampons have their own Twitter account. We will note, however, that the DP’s April Fools joke story involved painting the sculpture white.  That didn’t happen, but paint was applied.
