A statue of Bob Marley was unveiled in a Serbian village during a rock festival, The statue of the reggae star, by the Croatian artist Davor Dukic, was erected in a midnight ceremony with musicians from Croatia and Serbia in the town of Banatski Sokolac. Villages in Serbia have put up statues honoring other stars of pop culture, including Johnny Weissmuller as Tarzan and Sylvester Stallone as Rocky Balboa.
This story is getting better all the time. Folks in Yugo like pop-culture, and it would appear to some degree American pop-culture. Who else do they have statues of? French singers? Japanese sumo wrestlers? I fully intend on looking into this as best I can. The world could use some more statues of fictional characters. It would give everyone a chance to let their mind wander into fantasy and stop taking everything so seriously. I would love to walk out my door every morning and set gaze upon Tarzan and think of a simpler time when man and ape were one. being naked and free together, grooming each other. Ok, admittedly I don’t know who Johnny Weissmuller is, but I’m sure he looked great in a loin cloth. And Sly gets a statue too? So the list is growing, but still no Chuck Norris.
And he’s not happy.
Chuck Norris played Russian Roulette with a loaded gun… and won.
