Phone Girl’s Been Disconnected Again

Call me?

Oh for goodness sakes people can you leave the friggin Phone Girl statue alone. One of Shanghai’s most well known statues has been damaged once again. Yesterday morning people were greeted by the sad and sorry sight of the “call girl” lying on her side and broken in two, next to the telephone stand. The statue was sculpted by He Yong in 1996 but has been cursed with bad luck ever since. In 1998 it was pulled down by would-be thieves and then in 2000 it was nicked by two junk collectors. It took four years for the police to finally catch the thieves who are both serving 12 year jail sentences. In 2006 the phone was stolen.

  1. Maybe they are taking a stand against corporate greed and corruption. Or maybe the whole communist dealio. Or maybe it was a sex thing? Or an alcohol fueled scavenger hunt? I’m leaving your posts today with many more questions than answers.

    Phone girl statute, of pulease. What is supposed to be the message here , you get ten years if you tamper with me? Statutes need to be symbolic in some way. I’ll have to go Google.
