"Monolithic" pop culture references #45

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:

Alberto Gonzales is a stone-cold criminal sonofabitch who should be sent to Abu Ghraib forever. Dick Cheney is going to bomb Easter Island tomorrow.

Guardian Unlimited:
Freddie Williams was back on his regular pitch in front of Cheltenham's main stand, as canny as Aristotle, as resolute as an Easter Island statue.

The Daily Californian:
Top economists from industrialized nations around the world gathered late one night in 2005 at a secret meeting spot on the hills of Easter Island. There, after shedding their silk ties and pocket protectors, the world’s greatest number-crunchers guzzled vats of the powerful Amazonian hallucinogen Ayahuasca and poured the deadly venom from Henry Kissinger’s fangs over a giant steel replica of the Mayan calendar, producing the numbers 03-11-07.
