Concerning statues

Funny.  I picked this up at Parler, to which I am giving more attention, while giving less to Twitter.   This was from the estimable Chad Pecknold.

If you are tired of hearing that statues are being torn down, you might appreciate that some statues are fighting back.

I’d like to see what those idiot terrorists would do with those “weeping angel” statues from that Brit scifi series.

Don’t blink, you you’d miss it.

    Thank you for these consoling images. They demonstrate that, even in our increasingly humourless world, there are some who remember how to laugh.

    Jane Austen insults:

    Lower Left:

    “I do not want people to be very agreeable, as it saves me the trouble of liking them a great deal.”

    Upper Left:

    “I give you joy of our new nephew, and hope if he ever comes to be hanged it will not be til we are too old to care about it.”

    Eccles in his blog reminded us recently that one of the first statues to fight back was that of the Commendatore in Mozart’s Don Giovanni.

    è l’ultimo momento!

    When I saw this post, I immediately thought of the Twilight Zone (the original one). I started imagining what it would do with this—something quite appropriate with its own unique sense of justice.

    Didn’t figure you for a Whovian. So who’s your favorite Doctor?

    In Rome, do the Empty Cloak Wojtyla and the Bruno Giordano statues still stand?
