"Monolithic" pop culture references #7

Ever searching for news about Rapa Nui, this blog's administrator comes across many references to Rapa Nui and its famous moai. Often, these references are quite comical and have nothing to do with the island or the culture of Rapa Nui. Other times, they appear to be speculative, based more on misconceptions than reality, or downright bizarre. Here are some of the more recent references:

The Herald:
His series of drawings hang on the wall and seem to be photocopies of discarded socks. A monolithic painting leans against the wall, square, sturdy and black, while a wood sculpture looks down on it, an Easter Island head given a body.

A.V. Club:
The kids were like Easter Island statues. They just stared at us.[Quote by Conan O'Brien]
