Removing the rabbit could be a hare razing experience for the artists.

Yeah, trimming those ear hares is a nuisance.

Is it just me or does Yosemite Sam have that "You're gonna get hootin' tootin' raped!" look?

Gotta admit, the aggrandizement, posturing, history rewriting and butthurt are magical.

They are deifying him.  The rabbit lightens that a bit.

Andre Prinsloo and Ruhan Janse van Vuuren, had added a rabbit, said to be a discreet signature on their work.

And no one thought to ask about this before going full scale?

He's always had that look. That's why he's on the mud flaps of Rapist's trucks:

I guess any farking thing can be worthy of an international newspaper article.  "Oh look, there a half green/half yellow leaf on that tree, call Der Spiegel, and they'll do a story on it, even though it's in Kansas!"

RTFA. They planned on engraving their signatures on the statue, but they weren't allowed to. So, they added the rabbit instead.

One pill makes you larger
And one pill makes you small
And the ones that mother gives you
Don't do anything at all
Go ask Alice, when she's ten feet tall

And if you go chasing rabbits
And you know you're going to fall
Tell 'em a hookah smoking caterpillar
Has given you the call
To call Alice, when she was just small

When the men on the chessboard get up
And tell you where to go
And you've just had some kind of mushroom
And your mind is moving low
Go ask Alice, I think she'll know

When logic and proportion have fallen sloppy dead
And the white knight is talking backwards
And the red queen's off with her head
Remember what the dormouse said
Feed your head,
Feed your head

Easier to ask forgiveness than permission.

I'm more surprised no one actually inspected the statue before the big unveiling, not to look for rabbits or other odd additions, but to make sure details were correct and everything was undamaged.

Yeah, that was my first question, too, I spent several minutes trying to connect his comment to the weird, useless place the flaps were attached (and failing) before I realized they have Yosemite Sam on them.

My gosh, and here I thought they'd shut down that old amusement park in Revere like a hundred years ago.

Even still, couldn't they just take the blue line up there instead of going through some dude's ear?

I say leave it.  While Mandela is one of the most important political figures in history, by all accounts he was also a really funny guy.

"It doesn't belong there," said Mogomotsi Mogodiri, a department spokesman. "The statue represents what everyone in South Africa is proud of."

South Africa is not proud of its rabbits.

[www.burchetts.info image 850x420]


It took me about a minute to figure out the orientation of the ear in that picture..

From Wikipedia:

Storm Thorgerson originally suggested a close-up shot of a baboon's anus for the album cover photograph. He was overruled by the band, who informed him via an inter-continental telephone call while on tour in Japan that they would rather have "an ear underwater".

They could've compromised and used a baboon's ear underwater.
