Linkage

“Statue of Limitations”


It was a life-size rendering of Al, dressed in a toga and wearing a laurel wreath.  In one hand, he held a thermometer (reading 85 degrees, Fahrenheit) and in the other, a globe (it appeared that the Arctic polar cap was melting, but the first thing that popped into my head was a recollection of the logo of the Sherwin-Williams paint company – you know, the picture of an upturned can of red paint slopping its contents over the earth).  To complete this comedy in bronze, there was a bird standing on one shoulder. I guess it was supposed to be a dove, but it looked more like an oxpecker, to me: the kind of bird that eats ticks off the backs of rhinos.
...and what’s more, it’s vanished!

But do not despair, America!  Detective Paco is on the case.
