Here are details via the OU Daily:
A dildo was attached to OU’s Seed Sower statue Friday.
It is unclear what time it was attached to the statue, but The Daily became aware of the object at 3 p.m. Friday.
In the past, unknown members of the OU community have placed items in the Seed Sower’s bag on occasions related to athletic events. In 2018, when OU went to the Orange Bowl, oranges were seen in the Seed Sower’s bag and in 2019 when OU went to the Peach Bowl peach cups were placed in his bag.
Ha…ha…ha. Someone put a sex toy on a statue. Classic! And they even got the OU Student media to cover it. It’s nice to know the OU student newspaper is as desperate for clicks as everyone else! Those professors are teaching them the realities of the new media world very well!
That being said, I’m less concerned about the defacing of a statute, and more concerned about the placement of the dildo. Do they not teach anatomy anymore at OU?
The statue is an iconic symbol of the university, and can be seen on the university’s official seal. The statue is a monument to OU’s first president, David Ross Boyd.
Whew. I’m just relieved that they didn’t try to deface the David Boren statue. His past acts deserve way more than a mere dildo.
