But today’s strip in the Boston Globe is, well, kind of chuckleheaded.
Notice the caption lower right: “Real Statue in Boston, MA.”
Except it’s not anymore, at least according to this piece in Atlas Obscura.
The Boston area really took that “local” part seriously.
Artist Breanna Rowlette created “Lobsta’ Mickey,” a tribute to Boston’s close ties to seafood and linquistic accent. The six foot tall mouse is charming and strange at the same time… there’s something about a rodent with giant claws that can’t help but be a tad unsettling. He can be found at Faneuil Hall marketplace.
Update 2015: Sadly Lobster Mickey is no longer present. He got auctioned off in 2005 for 9000$ to an unknown bidder.
