Statue-Gazing: Munich

Is it just me, or does it look like Mary is about to get on board with the whole "spare the rod, spoil the Messiah" theory of parenting?

Good choice for first statue on the base of the "Bad Baby Jesus" plinth: A toddler killing a snake -- that's a theme the whole family can get behind (except maybe the kid pressganged into serpenticide duties).

Once the snakes are gone, dragons are a huge problem. Good call on getting rid of them.

Nothing ruins a town faster than a bunch of man-eating lions. It happened to Babylon AND Detroit, it could happen here. A proactive choice for a proactive city.

Snakes, Dragons, Lions -- all gone. Now it's time to take on the real threat: chickens*. You have to be kidding me -- chickens? Granted, that's one big-ass, angry chicken, but c'mon. No bears? Why not stick some guy with a penciled-on mustache in a striped shirt & beret there instead? Nobody's scared of Frenchie, either.

Yes, I know it's a basilisk. But that's not as funny as a chicken.
