BIG SPRING, Texas -- A Texas homeowner who adorned his front lawn with Michelangelo's "David" as a scantily clad Santa got more than just jolly laughs from his neighbors.

Barry McBee says he was aiming to make people chuckle by adding a Santa hat and white beard to the 5-foot-tall replica of the Renaissance statue with six-pack abs.

Then parents started calling city officials in Big Spring, about 290 miles west of Dallas, saying their children were asking why Santa was naked.

The city said the statue did not violate any town ordinances and there were no obscenity issues. But an official left McBee a voice mail last week, requesting that he put more clothes on David.

McBee responded by adding a pair of black and white velvet shorts, with a Christmas bow.
