"Monolithic" pop culture references #27

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:

Sunday Mail:
We were surrounded by carved poodle totems, bizarre Easter Island-like statues dressed in pink leis standing on faux tapa mats.

Plain Dealer:
Travel to Chile offers high adventure into the mighty Andes Mountains, the lakes and glaciers of Patagonia, the remote wonders of Easter Island and the treacherous ice of nearby Antarctica.
