May 5, 2009: Live Statues

Art (sort of, I guess performance art counts) for the second day in a row.
People will think the Cellar is cultured... unless they read the comments.

Quote:
You’ve probably seen from time to time those people who pretend to be a statue standing on the streets somewhere in downtown in summer time, freaking out the passers by, earning some spare coins. Now all of those came to Russian city Sochi to participate in Living Statues contest.


Now I know you're thinking of evil ways to make these people laugh... or cry.
May I be so bold as to suggest you don't mess with the people bearing weapons.



No, the babies are not real... c'mon.

I like to stand back a way and watch.
There will always be a parent with a few shiny pennies to waste, who gives them to their trusting child to go and put in the pot. The statue duly comes alive, scaring the bejesus out of the child, screams and bawls ensue.

Sometimes, even more amusingly, the parent isn't cruel, they are ignorant (or possible shortsighted?) and gets a scare in tandem. Two for the price of one, and it doesn't cost me anything.

I think I have slept with a few of these women.



SPUCK  Tuesday May 5 06:28 AM

Pretty cool!

In our town all we have is some lame arsehole who stands around under a shabby pink dingo balled parasol walking with baby steps that has motorists pissed.

Now we know who's the father of those babies.

What exactly do you mean, dingo balled? And which baby?


capnhowdy  Tuesday May 5 07:33 AM

I think we're gonna need tenderizer on these babies.

They must wear contacts to keep the whites of their eyes from shining.

That certainly has to be right up there with watching paint dry and grass grow, as far as entertainment value goes.

Well at least one of you was hard.


Cloud  Tuesday May 5 10:07 AM

that tricorn looks like it's going to fly away. Pretty interesting, though.

Was it your sparkling personality that caused them to be all brassed off?


birdclaw  Tuesday May 5 11:24 AM

Those women are really statuesque.



Gravdigr  Tuesday May 5 01:55 PM

"Well, don't just stand there like a statue..."



Sheldonrs  Tuesday May 5 02:14 PM

How do they judge which one is best? First one to get crapped on by a pigeon wins?





capnhowdy  Tuesday May 5 04:45 PM

Red is a very popular hair color on Russia. And there's one woman who is in almost every pic somewhere.

That Klinger?



Cloud  Wednesday May 6 10:24 AM

He looks pretty happy, though. I submit it's impossible to be unhappy while wearing all pink and carrying a pink parasol.

It's the burden of being the poor little rich girl.


tulzscha  Wednesday May 6 07:46 PM

Hmm. My vote goes to the swashbuckler-dude for picking a sitting pose. Definitely the most intelligent statue!

The Thinker?


capnhowdy  Wednesday May 6 08:59 PM

I'll give him a 10 for not having to stand there. Obviously he IS a thinker.
