Meanwhile, in Chicago sex shop news, the Christmas ornaments have come down and local haunt Batteries Not Included has erected its annual Pieces of Ass NSFW window display—this year, featuring none other than Sarah Palin. Our sister sister site Racked Chicago reports:
Not to be confused in any way with the delightfully funny off-Broadway hit, "Pieces (of ass)", this year's window display has added Sarah Palin to the mix. Sarah looks to be portrayed wearing a red lace face mask and a remnant of the Alaskan forest. Hmm.They even shot a video—check it out, above—the Palin effigy appears at about 0:31.
UPDATE: The display was created by Chicago-area window designer Lee Kay.
