Now i've seen it all

- The statue is beautiful and meaningful, but it represents an unrealistic beauty standard that doesn’t belong in 2014.

He should leave it the way it is, it's iconic because it's been like this for years

Just make a life-size Stay-Puft and be done with it.

I think it's classic and therefore shouldn't be changed, people associate it with New York and freedom and stuff.
But I think that plus sized smaller replicas as souvenirs wouldn't be a bad idea.

It's only a random idea. Nobody actually thinks it will happen for real.

My genuine reaction to this (facial expression)= :lolwut:


Just no. I seriously doubt that anyone looks at the Statue of Liberty and thinks that. :lolwut:

This is from one of those fake news websites. Can't believe people are responding as if it's not an obvious troll

Aside from the fact that the main source for this info appears to be a spoof media source, does anyone actually think Lady Liberty is supposed to represent a paradigm of beauty?

Take a good, long look at her face.

After closer inspection of the source, this story is purely satirical and bears no truth. So I'm forced to therefore close the thread.
