    • windowlicker

      If I was a statue, I would remain still too then move and scare people. These statues are scary but funny too. Another great post chive. This made my year. lmao.

      I think that means you're doing it wrong.

        Sadly there are many a girls who think sex is:
        "I lay on my back".

        • Incredible Stud

          Huh…I never met any. Are you related to etcrr?

    • DaddyD

      "What's the matter, darling? Did I hurt you?"
      "No. Why do you ask?"
      "I thought I felt you move."

      Either a funny joke or a horrifying look into the sex life of a necrophiliac.

    These people are going to die way too early.

      So are all of my friends.

  • kissmykarass

    Some of these are quite impressive. Its nice that they only work for a tip. But if there was a museum for this kind of art, I wouldn't regret spending the money to see them.

  • FionnR

    I kind of feel like I've been cheated on, I always thought no. 39 was Dublin's living statue and now I see him whoring around in England 😥 …*sniff*

    Pictures of people pretending to be statues? Please show me more!!! 😀

  • stot

    #36 These are actually real statues lmao

    • Doron

      I believe this is in Antwerp, Belgium. Near the Cathedral.
      The 'statue' on the left is a man.

      • alex86

        Yes it is. He's quite known, he has been a statue for a lot of years now. He has become one of the touristic attractions of Antwerp.

  • Jame

    Taking pictures of living statues is the most pointless thing. The point (if there is one) of a living statue is for them to not move. If you take a picture of anything, it's not moving. So in pictures, EVERYTHING is a living statue

    • Tj Huddleston

      By your logic… The Chive is specifically a site that posts images of statues with FLBP and helps donate to statues who are military heeros

    • Frank & Been

      You know when you think to yourself, "Nawww… no one is that stupid" ?

      I've just been proved wrong.

  • professional sitter

    it must look very nice on your cv

    And if they move it would be scary because statues aren't supposed to move but then they look like statues and then they move. very good chive great post.

    • I'm gay Dan Conrad

      Oh I get it they look like statues so when they move people freak out because statues don't move as they are made of metal, or other materials that don't move. Haha it's do simple

      • gay Dan Conrad

        Do simple??? You asshole

  • AnyoneForCoffee

    You know what, I'm calling it:

    Covering yourself with paint, and then expecting people to give you money while you just stand there, has now been done to death.

    Move along now, please.

    • Simon

      Painting things has been done. photographing things has been done. Making sounds has been done.

      And posting comments has been done.

      I find these interesting.

      • AnyoneForCoffee

        In all of the above, people have improved and evolved the art. Painting, photography and music of today are nothing like what they were last year, which was nothing like ten years ago, which was nothing like twenty years ago….

        *This* all started with people covering themselves in paint and then standing still….

        ….and years later, it is *still* people covering themselves in paint and then standing still.

        It's done.
