"Monolithic" pop culture references #39

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:

Voodoo Extreme:
The island is small, and is topped by what can be described as a giant, mutated Easter Island-like head with three faces.

Daily Iowan:
A goat's eyes have rectangular pupils … just like the colleges on Easter Island.
"Please don't notice my enormous head." ..... "How drunk was I to go home with Easter Island?"
