I'm gonna pee myself laughing at this
@Lexi every time i see that face i feel like i can hear its screams of anguish
@Lexi Beautiful. It's like a melting Zardoz.
@Lexi I think focussing on the face is painting that statue in an unnecessarily good light. Sure, it's an appalling face, but then you miss out on the golden horse or the weird-arse proportioning!
@Lexi it's actually accurate
@Lexi that one can stay
at most give it a plaque that just says "bad" in comic sans
@Lexi if the screaming headless bomb-hand guys in Serious Sam had heads...
@Lexi hoLY FUCK 😂
@Lexi OMG I can't stop laughing at how bad this is! 😂😂
@InvaderXan @Lexi Oh god, the Wikipedia page 🤣
"The statue is generally considered aesthetically unappealing due to its abnormal facial features, which bear little resemblance to Forrest himself". https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nathan_Bedford_Forrest_Statue
(The horse isn't good either.)
The owner sounds like a virulently racist and pigshit-thick white supremacist obviously enough, so smashing it up would piss him off inordinately. In all serious please demolish it
@Lexi help i am laughing so much i have hiccups
@Lexi "The South Will Be Risible Again."
@Lexi You guys can keep this one... as a memento.
@Lexi Everyone is focusing on the face, but what about the scale?
How tall was Nathan Bedford Forrest? Was he three foot nothing?
Or did he ride into battle on a mighty twelve foot tall steed?
@Lexi AHHHHH HAHAHAHA
@Lexi No yeah, leave that one up. It's perfect.
@Lexi He fucking came. O_O
@Lexi I'm not fond of tearing down statues myself (went through that phase in my country a while ago), but this thing is so hilarious I boosted it right away :-)
@Lexi Unfortunately this thing is surrounded by a padlocked gate and is mostly only visible from the highway (along with 13 confederate flags surrounding it,) so lots of folks don't even know about his gnarly face.
