A MESSAGE FROM THE BANNER BARON
Residents in the town where famed comedienne Lucille Ball grew up are calling for the removal and replacement of a statue erected in her honor that is so unflattering at least one local calls it “frightening”. Naturally, I had to check it out.
Those people are right. It’s monstrous.
There’s a Facebook page where you can show your support. Estimates for a new statue are all over the page, but I’m thinking it’s going to be north of ten grand. Not sure how to get money to the right people but I’ve got my team working on it and I’ll let you know.
Lucy deserves better.
Not that I would ever receive such an honor, but if anyone ever wants to put up a statue of me, may I suggest that you make it look like one of our Awesome-X Banner Stands? Just my 3-D noggin on the top, but perhaps bronzed for that that classic, historical figure look. And definitely staged in a “no fly” zone for birds. You’ll find our “not suitable for permanent outdoor display but otherwise pretty groovy” version of the Awesome-X Banner Stands on sale this week. Birds rarely give it a second look.
