"Monolithic" pop culture references #34

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:

City Pages:
Her face is three-fourths Beautiful Woman and one-fourth androgynous Easter Island moai, and her charismatic dignity balanced out the dour chords and on-their-last-leg beats of Haines's latest, Knives Don't Have Your Back.

Jackson Hole Star Tribune:
Western hospitality is one thing, but on Easter Island the whole town showed up at the airport. "It's a major welcoming committee," Mueller said.
