"Monolithic" pop culture references #30

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:
Oh, looky there, it's a tissue dispenser ($19.95) shaped like one of the giant stone heads on Easter Island and the Kleenex comes out of his chiseled nostril.

WHATEVER happened to the arch-conservative prime minister who inspired comparisons to Easter Island statues and satirical T-shirts reading "put value back in the pound - vote Malcolm Fraser"?
