As If Detroit Didn’t Have Enough Problems

Detroit… let’s just say Detroit is not one of the world’s most pre-eminent tourist destinations. Really, the city’s main claim to fame is that it’s the setting of the Robocop movies, and the fact that it could probably use a few dozen Robocops in actuality. So, when Detroit mayor Dave Bing started asking for ideas to help rehabilitate the city’s image on his Twitter, it should be no surprise that someone suggested building a Robocop statue. Alas:


?Dammit, Bing! I doubt it was suggested to be stupid. Yes, a Robocop statue would be kitschy, but that doesn’t mean it wouldn’t be a tourist attraction, and a good one at that. And it would be fun, which I’m under the impression would possibly help that whole image thing you’re so worried about. Frankly, I think OCP got to Bing, guys. Although if he makes a statue of Clarence Boddiker with a plaque reading “BITCHES LEAVE” underneath, I’ll forgive him. (Via /Film)
