Fake Mickey Mouse Olympic Statues

24 Jul

From Pink Tentacle:

When asked about the resemblance to Mickey, a spokesperson replied, “They have square holes in their ears. They are not copies.” The spokesperson suggested the statues are unique because they incorporate the themes of old Chinese coins (the square holes), the year of the rat, the Olympics and the financial district into the design.

Reminds me of the time my son and I heard an ad for some local amusement park, which featured “TinkerDoodle!”, which we took as shorthand for “please don’t sue us!”

And hey, Lisa, you might notice their gym shorts seem to be a red version of our fashion statement from 1980.
