Notice that the statues of the guitarists and bassists all have them with Fenders. :)

Elizabeth Montgomery as Bewitched's Samantha Stephens - Salem MA

'Bewitched' Statue Bothers Some In Salem
 
By David Segal
Washington Post Staff Writer 
Tuesday, May 10, 2005
 
Executives at TV Land surely expected gracious applause when they announced plans for a bronze statue of Samantha Stephens in "Bewitched." And why not? Everyone loves the statue of Ralph Kramden in "The Honeymooners," which was commissioned by the rerun cable network and is now on display in midtown Manhattan. There were upbeat reviews for their homage to "The Andy Griffith Show," which enshrines Sheriff Andy Taylor and young son Opie and which you can see near the statehouse in North Carolina.
 
But the plans for the salute to "Bewitched" didn't go over well. That's because TV Land decided the place for this nine-foot tribute to America's most beloved housewife witch is in the middle of Salem, Mass., a town best known for hanging 19 citizens accused of witchcraft. Okay, it happened a long time ago -- in 1692 to be exact -- but it's still a sore subject. Capitalizing on that history with a statue of a broom-riding TV witch struck some locals as in really bad taste.
 
"It's like TV Land going to Auschwitz and proposing to erect a statue of Colonel Klink," says John Carr, a former member of the Salem Historic District Commission. "Putting this statue in the park near the church where this all happened, it trivializes the execution of 19 people."

The ‘Scary Lucy’ Statue Will Get a New Home
 
Sarah Begley @SCBegley May 11, 2015
 
The tribute was mocked in a New York town for its lack of resemblance to the actress
 
A statue of Lucille Ball that upset residents in Celoron, N.Y., but amused the Internet, is relocating.
 
Dubbed “Scary Lucy,” the bronze likeness (which critics say bears little resemblance to the actress) will be featured in the National Comedy Center, a new attraction in nearby Jamestown that will open sometime next year, according to the New York Times. Celoron will maintain ownership of the statue, and it will stay in that village until a replacement is found.
 
The Center’s chairman said in a statement that he was excited about the work as “a tribute to what [Ball] was all about—making people laugh. This piece of comedy history has made millions of people laugh since going viral.”

Arthur, "Gimme those damn books you little shits or I'll beat you with this racket".

 

Kids, "Oh please Mr Ashe, we need those books for school and please don't hit us again"!


They said I could be anything, so I became a disappointment.
