Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!

Good Lord.

Ah, that look.  The artist managed to capture that wistful I-don’t-have-time-for-this-shit persona perfectly, don’t you think?

I can hear it now:  “You don’t think you have a medical problem?  Go stand in front of my statue for twelve hours and then come back here and try to tell me that.”

    That’s an extreme close-up. The actual statue is only 3 feet tall.

    Shoddy likeness. They left off the horns and cloven hooves. Although they say it does smell slightly of brimstone.

    Let the Miami Dolphin fans get a crack at it!

    Will The Statue make a tour? Like to a Wal-Mart or a Piggly Wiggly? Or will there have to be pilgrimages to Bryant-Denny to catch a glimpse?

    The sculptor still has to complete the punch-list items by adding fangs to the upper row of teeth. Nick’s statue will then be mounted permanently next to Marilyn Monroe’s.

    In related news, investigative reporters from the Opelika Observer are trying to determine if the guy from Coker, Your Place for One-Stop Shopping for Bestiality, ever had sex with a female of the human persuasion and, if so, the names of his children to stockpile for future propaganda use. If not, some children with Bear Bryant spinoff names will be created for future disinformation use.

    Was there anything Freudian in you saying ‘Good Lord’?
    The statue reminds me of Lord Farquaad.

    Never been a fan of statue worship,but If I’m Bammer I think I would have gotten a Stallings statue before Little Nicky.At least Stallings had some class.

    My dog won’t stop barking when the statue’s on the monitor!?

    Bama fans are giving this just as much seriousness as it deserves.

    What’s the over/under on how long it takes an Auburn fan to try to deface it in retribution for the Toomer’s oaks?

  11. W Cobb Dawg

    So now Birmingham has Vulcan, Auburn has two trees filled with toilet paper, and Tuscaloosa has Saban. With all those graven idols, I don’t want to be near bama when the apocalypse hits.

    Does the statue have wheels so it can be moved when he leaves ?
    Would it look even smaller outside Jerry Jones crystal palace in TX ?

    • Smith is here

      In the event the exalted leader decided to relocate [after repeated assurances to the contract - see Miami Dolphins ] the statue will be dealt with in the following manner :

      “Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
      Stand in the desert. Near them, on the sand,
      Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown,
      And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command,
      Tell that its sculptor well those passions read,
      Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
      The hand that mocked them and the heart that fed”

      Toppled statue may be struck liberally with your shoe -unless your an Auburn grad and want to risk retaliation, again
