"Monolithic" pop culture references #8

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:

Sydney Morning Herald:
Denton then described Mr Chipp's impression of government censors and what they might do with pornography magazines, his lust for the Queen and the similarities between former prime minister Malcolm Fraser and an Easter Island statue "with a poker up its arse".

THROUGH the decades a passion for archeology has given me special and profound insights into Australian politics. Thus my visit to Easter Island in 1975 revealed a place littered with dirty great statues of Malcolm Fraser.
