'IT'S NEW YORK'S BLARNEY STONE'

It is totally a thing for tourists to rub the Wall Street 'Charging Bull' statue's testicles

I've seen a lot of people posing for selfies with the bull but I've never seen anyone kissing his blarney stones.

NTTAWWT, of course.

Thank God its not a female bull.

Those people should be sac'd.

Reminds me of a long-standing (heh) Chi-Town tradition:

In Baseball, when a National League team plays its first away game in Chicago, it is traditional for the rookie players to be sent out into the night with a paint can, a brush and a map to the corner of Belmont and Sheridan Road, about a mile east of Wrigley Field. There they paint their team colors on the testicles of Sheridan's famous stud, Winchester.

Hence, the statue's nickname of the "B@lls Horse"...and, veteran opposing players caution the rooks not to look at the horse as the team bus drives by, as to do so will make you go o-fer...and, perhaps, pity the poor city workers who have to clean the paint off the statue yet again.
