Statues, or rather statue removal, has been in the news lately. We have two such statues here in town that were renovated a few years back. Time, weather and mother nature played a big role in these statues lives much as she does on most other statues. Having lunch in town the other day, the Pickle Queen and I sat looking at one that stands next to a prominent intersection. This statue story came to mind.
For decades, two heroic statues, one male and one female, stood facing each other in a city park. One spring day, an angel came down from heaven and approached the statues.
“You both have been such exemplary statues,” the angel said to them, “that I’m going to give you a very special gift. I’m going to bring you both to life for half an hour, during which time you may do anything you want.” With a clap of his hands, the angle brought the two statues to life.
Shyly, the two statues approached each other but soon made a mad dash for the bushes. Shortly, a great deal of giggling and shaking of branches emerged from the bushes. Fifteen minutes later, the two statues emerged from the bushes with wide grins on their faces.
“You still have fifteen minutes left,” the angle said winking at them.
With a wide grin on her face, the female statue turned to the male statue and said, “Great! Only this time you hold down the pigeon and I’ll crap on its head!”
