Parking Lot of Goofy Statues (Gone)

Field review by the editors.

North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina

Lots of life-size, full-color, factory-produced statues are displayed in the parking lot of an antiques mall: Santa, Elvis, Marilyn Monroe, a Marine in full dress uniform, a Hot Dog Man, the Blues Brothers, and a selection of various buxom babes inspired by Pirates of the Caribbean. Also here, a few objectionable lawn jockeys and grinning black boys holding slices of watermelon. All are for sale (so your viewing experience may vary), and there are more inside, although the parking lot gallery was so mesmerizing that we forgot to check out the actual mall.
