Its a fricken statue for f**ks sake

Pania of the Reef, Napier’s iconic bronze statue, will be back on her perch in Marine Parade next week.

So what!!

The statue, which has become a national and international tourism icon since it was cast in 1954, was stolen more than a fortnight ago after it was wrenched from its base.

BFD, no news here.

She was discovered a week ago in a Napier backyard and three people were facing court charges over her disappearance.

Good, crime, criminals, action…good.

Napier mayor Barbara Arnott said today slight damage to the 100kg bronze statue had been repaired and it would go back onto its base before dawn next Wednesday.

So far so good

The statue would be allowed to set on its new adhesive throughout the day before the public was invited to a special ceremony to welcome her home at 5.30pm.

WTF!!! a welcoming home ceremony, oh for crying out loud, its a fricken statue!!!!
