So why does the black woman get a name like Queenie... and Queenie II, where`s Queenie I? And she is the only one with a name.

These statues remind me of ones in a Ripley`s Believe It Or Not museum in St. Augustine, FL. You were in this room, and as you walk out of it, there`s a lady pointing a camera at a man next to the door. I stepped back after noticing them and nothing happened for a while. They were statues... Fooled me. So I stood a bit down that door to watch other peoples` reactions to the statues. It was quite hilarious.

I think having Duane Hanson in my room in the middle of the night would scare me more. He`s f*cking creepy.

I think I saw one of these sculptures behind glass at an airport. Everyone was looking at it and someone said:
"no way. There has got to be a man sitting there."
And someone replied "But look how stiff he is. Every strand of hair is perfectly still!"
And all of us were about 7 feet away from the sculpture!

I find it funny how the posts below turned into a debate on american obesity.

#6 Paul: "Why don’t you make some hot bitches instead of all these fatties."

#7 Adam G: "Everyone is fat.
F*ck us.
Seriously, we need to stop eating.
Look at how we are viewed?
It’s disgusting."

Hahaha

I`ve always liked Duane Hanson, super realism or hyper realism is impressive.

The exhibit was in my town 2 years ago. It was really neat! A bunch of school girls thought my mom was one of the sculptures, and when she moved they all started screaming.

Woah, they look so real.

If my brother ever put one of those in my room,
I`d probably die of a heart attack.
