Really, if you wanted to rebuff someone’s attentions, then that would be a foolproof line. There really is no coming back from that one, is there?
“Coming down the pub for a drink?”
“I can’t I’m a priestess of Baal.”
But it does get weirder. Here is a picture of a scene from the movie. People leapt headlong into the flames from in front of an eleven-foot high statue.
An enthusiast bought the statue, and paid $2,000 to have it transported to his home in Lumberton, New Jersey. He then got a zoning permit to install it on his front lawn overlooking the freeway.
For a long time everyone regarded it as simply an eyesore, but now someone has twigged as to where it came from, and the soccer-moms and worthy burghers of Lumberton have got up a petition to have it removed. Whilst other people write to the local papers to say, “Why don’t you lighten up?”
It doesn’t matter which way I look at this story, I can’t help but laugh maniacally. Nowt so strange as folks.
