Statues I Question


Doing research for that Stockholm Olympics logo made me even confuseder than when I started. Why did they use this image? What is that man doing to the horse? I thought that it would be some kind of statue or monument in Stockholm, but my hours of searching for it have been fruitless. But I DID find a bunch of other statues that I hope I'm misinterpreting...


Remember when Elaine found that mannequin of her in the store window? I felt a similar feeling when I saw this statue. It is an exact replica of my friend Christopher when he rides a turtle naked.










This one is a tribute to Diarrhea. Here is a princess riding a wave of her own fecal matter.
















This one is called "Sculptor's First Try" and was a real bargain for the city of Reykjavik, Iceland. It depicts 2 fisherman that were looking for the best fishing spot, but suddenly realized that their work would improve if they stopped wearing boxing gloves.











"Dolphin Rodeo" shows what happens when you take dolphins lightly, and decide to mount them unbridled.













This one is outside of a library. Why is the mom so against libraries, that she has to yank her kid so violently out of one? IIs this a monument to book-haters?

The sight of Chris' ween is making me very uncomfortable. Can't you photoshop a swimsuit on him, or a happy face or something??

That last one is not in front of a library. It's in front of an office building on 200 South, just west of Main Street. I may be off on the coordinates but it's not near the library. There's an office plaza there or something. Mainly I'm writing this because it matters a lot, so.. I decided to write this.. owing to the extreme urgency.. and stuff.

jvzdpq: the sound of the next poster correcting me on the address. sim. to "sonic boom"

Seriously, who wants a statue of a squatty naked man?

If I had ample funds I would purchase it. And a real turtle to perch Chrissy on and pose for me next to.

I thought it looked familiar. I couldnt remember where I saw that mom and kid one. I dont consider it pooping to correct misstatements of mine. For instance, I could correct myself about the Olympics logo post. I incorrectly referred to Wolff Olins as if he were a person, when actually it is a design agency.

Don't worry, I also made the mistake in the podcast, so 2 thousand designers are wondering if I'm dumb.
