Back (apologies for my handwriting!)
The text of the postcard is
Leave it to art to create new fears in your life. Until recently I wasn’t afraid of giant, highly evolved rabbits trying to take over the world.
Normally I send you postcards to try and get your attention so you’ll invite me on your show … But this time I just want this creepy rabbit out of here.
Why am I doing this?
This is a statue in D.C. for the Boy Scouts. Check out more pictures here.
A bit of explanation can be found here, but I’ll paste the bit about the (naked) man:
“The male figure exemplifies physical, mental, and moral fitness, love of country, good citizenship, loyalty, honor, and courage. He carries a helmet, a symbol of masculine attire.”
Sure, masculine. I get it. But it still took me by surprise. Like some terrible childhood where the dad couldn’t get enough attention.
“Son, let’s go outside for a walk!”
“I really need to do my homework dad! Sorry, maybe tomorrow!”
“Tomorrow!? Have you SEEN this physique!? We can’t deny the world this hot bod – we’re going outside NOW!”
(“UGH!, walks with Dad are the WORST!!!”)
Not a good picture but I just really enjoyed this statue
