"Monolithic" pop culture references #28

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:
Behind us, a giant Boofhead and Olive Oil are as unmoved as Easter Island statues.

"The glow behind a shuttle forms a sharp-edged cylinder with pulsating sides - a ghostly shape that has reminded some astronaut watchers of the Easter Island statues. 'Should we take photographs of it, or bow down and worship it?' one whispered to a companion at the windows, only half in jest.

At Easter Island, a craft and jewelry shop tucked away behind Long John Silver’s on Wards Road, Luis Gonzalez’s observance was more subdued - but every bit as heartfelt.
