Imponderable #123: Vancouver

13 Sep

September 13, 2014

Well, isn’t that special. (Cliché but expected Church Lady joke? Check. Now let’s move on.)



Be glad I didn’t post an uncensored picture. I found a couple online and Satan’s shlong is pretty disturbing. It is more spiky than you’d expect.

Anywho, (no, that’s not a typo, I meant “anywho”) it says that “The appearance of the statue came as a surprise to just about everyone as it was not commissioned by city authorities.” So in other words, no one would have been surprised had the city authorities commissioned it. In which circle of Hell is their city located?

I found a few articles on this story, but I posted this one solely for the headline “Nude Satan statue erected overnight, shocking citizens.” You don’t find puns like that on the NBC Nightly News!

I can understand how a statue of Satan with an erection might be considered just a tad scandalous. And that’s the problem with Satanists: they just don’t try to fit in. If they really had to, they should have put up a statue of Satan that no one would object to.

Why can’t Satanists be more fun? The question is Imponderable.

    Who says that’s Satan? It could be just a generic devil. These distinctions are important!

      Good point. I need to brush up on Hell’s org chart.

    “in other words, no one would have been surprised had the city authorities commissioned it” – this made me laugh my tonsils out 😀
    By the way, is it me, or that “statue” looks like an ordinary shop window dummy painted in red (and probably it is)? That doesn’t look like much of a tribute to the lord of darkness…

      My first thought it was that it looked like it came out of the Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Give It Away video.

        Oh, so the mystery is solved: it’s not the Satanists who did it, it was the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Just a publicity stunt with very little imagination, how disappointing, I expected something better from them.

          I should have known Flea was behind this!
