A brand new, HUGE statue of late African president, Nelson Mandela, is billed as the largest statue the former leader — It also has a tiny, barely visible rabbit living inside one of the massive bronze ears.
South African officials say they want the bunny removed from the ear of the statue,
“It doesn’t belong there,” said Mogomotsi Mogodiri, a department spokesman. “The statue represents what everyone in South Africa is proud of.”
His department said in a statement that there are discussions on “how best to retain the integrity of the sculpture without causing any damage or disfigurement.”
Turns out the rabbit is the ‘calling card’ of a pair of artist commissioned to build the memorial. Telephone calls and emails to the artists were not immediately returned.
Is Avril Lavigne preggo? There was that one time she donned a fake baby bump for a TV show.. Whew.. The future Mrs. Chad Kroeger exited a London hotel on Wednesday sporting a snakeskin minidress with some suspicious bunching around the midsection..
Daniel Craig is uber-hot right now which is solid proof that Skyfall was a raging success… But come on! $100,000 a minute payment for just standing around for Range Rover? That’s $1 million for 10 minutes work! WHAT? You say I I sound bitter? Damn right I’m bitter! I can only break down my earnings on a per year basis! So how much does Craig make a second? Math students? Hello? Anyone?
The actor reportedly received a whopping ONE MILLION DOLLAR paycheck for a little spokesperson work, showing up and taking pics in front of the new Range Rover at the New York Auto Show.But after a VERY quick photo shoot, Daniel hightailed it out of there! Onlookers said he was there only a few minutes before bolting! One unsatisfied guest said: ”I couldn’t even tell if he was actually here. Source.”
A representative from Range Rover decided to focus on the positive. He said:
“We won’t comment on our relationship with Mr. Craig beyond confirming that Land Rover supports the charity S.A.F.E., of which the actor is a patron, and will continue its charitable efforts with a vehicle donation later this year.”
So then the nice elite folks at Range Rover said that S.A.F.E. works to fight AIDS and female mutilation in Africa, so you know, how down can you really get on the propers?
This is one way to get notice over to a good cause! Angelina Jolie was spotted wearing this gold band on her finger! And not just any finger! The same finger that represents marriage! The ring finger! It all went down during a recent trip to a rescue camp in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Gen. Norman Schwarzkopf has died. He was 78. Norman famously headed the coalition forces to rid Iraq of Saddam Hussein in Desert Storm.
FOXNEWS: A U.S. official says retired Gen. H. Norman Schwarzkopf, who commanded the U.S.-led international coalition that drove Saddam Hussein’s forces out of Kuwait in 1991, has died. He was 78.
The official tells The Associated Press that Schwarzkopf died Thursday in Tampa, Fla. The official wasn’t authorized to release the information publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity.
A much-decorated combat soldier in Vietnam, Schwarzkopf was known popularly as “Stormin’ Norman” for a notoriously explosive temper.
He lived in retirement in Tampa, where he had served in his last military assignment as commander-in-chief of U.S. Central Command. That is the headquarters responsible for U.S. military and security concerns in nearly 20 countries from the eastern Mediterranean and Africa to Pakistan.
