church mounts state and begins thrusting wildly

This cross-wielding, Ten Commandments-carrying Lady Liberty was unveiled a few days ago in Memphis. A hundred burning American flags couldn’t even begin to piss me off as much as this does.

(Stay tuned for the giant statue of Jesus in U.S. military fatigues.)

    That statue would be cooler if she was holding a bloody crucifix.

    Perhaps covered in a thick coat of santorum.

    How about lady liberty holding a sword dripping with the blood of non-christians?

    I guess I’ll have too rush my Gorilla pissing on the Quran statue into production.

    Is she trying to ward off some giant god-damned vampires? Becaues then I could go with her holding the cross, athough it would be cooler if she were preparing to fight vamps tfor her to be golding a big-ass version of mr. pointy instead. (That would be a stake…)

    Or maybe a giant, foam “We’re #1” hand.

    Why does this remind me of Animal Farm?

    Is that thing on public property?

    I suspect it’s on property owned by the church, but I could be mistaken… I’ve been trying to access the church’s website for the past few days, but can’t seem to reach it. Once I get an email address there, I’ll ask them.

    Obviously, we need a Lady Liberty for each religion. I can’t wait for the big skyclad Wiccan.

    After this, I think it’s quite probable that the French are never again going to give us another present.

    It should be pretty easy to make a giant burka for the Lady Liberty in New York… Can you look into that, Doug?

    And why is she wearing Barney Rubble’s clothes?

    She’d make a good animated Christmas display, like the Dancing Santa: she could wiggle her hips and wave her cross to “Jingle Bell Rock.” Mark, I think you have enough lead time to get her in the stores by November.

    Perhaps she can be hooked up directly to a computer so that she recites up to date stock quotes, or the going price for crunchy cheese doodles at WalMart!
