Hope this is a joke! This is more like a shrine to man`s bull%*&t !What a farce and insult to this beautiful piece of rock,no longer the Big Chief but now reduced to a mere bitch with someone`s phallus (the Oscar)rammed down her proverbial throat.It`s all going the way of all flesh and turning into a circus,just like Everest et al!  Pure vanity!
