Well, Tuesday night the City Commission will approve putting the statue of an Indian… with his naked fanny hanging out… on the 4th & Bluemont roundabout. He will be shown offering his peace pipe… the forerunner of the marijuana bong… to all the college students driving up and down Bluemont. The conservative commissioners who have opposed this previously, will be on board. You see, the artist will have 50 “baby Indians” for sale. The ‘good old boys of Manhattan’ can buy these little Indians for $4,150 each. The artist donates $1,200 of each $4,150 collected back to the City. If he sells all 50, the City gets the money back they paid him to build the statue.
Will they sell naming rights to the Indian? Will he be known as the GTM Brave? Or, maybe he’ll be the Civics Plus Pappoose.
Nothing to see here. This will slide through the Commission with little or no discussion. Coming to a roundabout near you… a stoned, naked Indian.
