(Boing Boing)   "You may have heard about the metal statue of Marilyn Monroe that is quietly resting in a Chinese scrapheap after a brief time in front of a Guigang mall. But the juxtaposition of Giant Metal Marilyn amid the garbage is only the tip of the weird"   (boingboing.net) divider line 34

That has to be the lamest conspiracy theory ever.

Moving on now...

Joltin' Joe would have enjoyed this pose. Or maybe did.

we should save this.  when the north korean government falls one day we can knock down the statue of the great leader and replace it with this thing.

far stranger are the possible connections to the another, American metal Marilyn, who currently lives at the New Jersey sculpture park Grounds for Sculpture.

are they revamping Stargate?

So why didn't subby link to the actual article instead of that stupid boing-boing crap?

It's symbolism of how Hollywood used up Marilyn Monroe then threw her on the trashheap when it was done exploiting her. Not sure how the Chinese fit into my conspiracy, but I'm sure there's a connection there.

I would be concerned if a giant Marilyn Monroe statue was resting noisily.
 
2014-06-23 10:02:56 PM
I was more excited when I thought it was Marilyn Manson.

I read the phrase above as Glans Metal Marilyn and I think you'd agree that's a better band name.

Marilyn Monroe?  Looks more like a disfigured Barbie or maybe it's a prototype for the new Ugly Barbie, the toy for hideous looking kids.

She is why the Kennedy brothers were my favorite politicians.  I mean, who could fault someone for banging Marylin?

/well

Sadly, it's not the piece of shiat that was inflicted on Chicago a couple of years ago.
 
2014-06-23 11:07:26 PM
Fitting. She was a piece of shiat anyway.

First time I agree with you on anything, but this^

I think it would look great right next to the Kennedy memorial in DC.

I was thinking "Fallen Metal Marylin" for an orchestral black metal band.

That one was moved to Palm Springs, California ... up until this past April -- when it was disassembled, and moved to New Jersey.

Nobody wants to keep that thing; it's "tacky" incarnate.
