The thing is that GWAR’s Slymenstra Hymen, aka Danielle Stampe, posted a photo of the concept for the new statue yesterday (June 10) on Facebook. And the thig gets even weirder since Metal Injection received word that a GWAR fan had started a change.org petition to actually carry out the idea.
The report says that:
“Robert E. Lee is a failed war general that supported a racist cause,” the petition reads. “For too long, the city of Richmond has been displaying statues of him and other loser civil war veterans.”
“We, the scumdogs of the universe, call on the city of Richmond to erect a statue of great local leader Oderus Urungus in its place. While Oderus comes from the planet Scumdogia, he called Richmond his home, working with the local art community and employing local artists and ladies of the night.”
Here’s an artistic representation of the statue.
