"Monolithic" pop culture references #24

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 entrance is guarded by a stone Japanese warrior and two sculpted wooden faces that resemble Easter Island figures, whom Ms. Gringorten dubs "Fred and Barney."

Inside Line:
Well, it turns out Cadillac has grown a pair worthy of Easter Island.

Belfast Telgraph:
The petroglyphs at Lipona on Hiva Oa are more alarming than the Easter Island statues. There is one of a turtle and a man mating.
