"Monolithic" pop culture references #31

Ever searching for news about Rapa Nui, this blog's administrator comes across many references to Rapa Nui and its famous moai.

Other times, they appear to be speculative, based more on misconceptions than reality, or downright bizarre. Here are some of the more recent references:
