Giant cartoon penis drawn on blackboard causes outrage

A TV station has been flooded with complaints after broadcasting an interview with a headmistress showing a giant cartoon penis drawn on the blackboard behind her.

Head teacher Mária Franíková was being interviewed in a classroom at her school in Poltár, Slovakia, about an upcoming staff strike.

But no-one noticed the drawing on the board behind her, featuring a man with a penis for a nose, until viewers began to jam the switchboard at broadcaster Televizne Noviny's studios.

One angry viewer Miroslav Spak, said: "I don't know whether this was a secret message from the teachers to the government or whoever, but it should have been wiped off the board. There are enough dickheads in politics without creating more," he added.
