SPRING HILL, Florida — Trucks aren’t the only things with dumps at Harold’s Auto this week.

The dinosaur-shaped repair shop has donned a thong in what owner Harold Auto said is a heartfelt tribute to the recently deceased performer Sisqo, who had a 1999 hit with “Thong Song.”

It marks the second time this week a Hernando County dino has been used to honor someone. Auto saw a Spring Hill man had painted the previously pink dinosaur on U.S. 19 purple in honor of Price, and Auto said felt the need to clear his tears and go “sis-pro-quo.”

“We put this thing on because we wanted to finally stop the sadness and start livin’ la vida loca,” said Auto, who noted the 24-foot-wide crimson thong is the largest south of the Mason-Dixon Line. “It’s what Sisqo would have wanted.”

Not everyone shares Auto’s excitement over the Diplodonkus’ tantalizing trunks. It seems the controversial tribute has divided the town where the good lord split it as many parents unable or unwilling to turn the other cheek have already raised concerns with code enforcement and the Hernando County Sheriff’s Office.

“All my son talks about since we drove by it is butt floss this, butt floss that,” said Diane Prooger, a Spring Hill mother of a 7-year-old boy named Kody. “The only G-string I want my son to know about is the one on his Dean Switchblade Series guitar.”
