Who would you erect a statue of in New Jersey?

Since we’re living in a society where statues now need to be vetted before they can remain up, see Christopher Columbus, Asbury Park founder James A Brady, Richard Stockton, etc, etc, etc. I asked “If you were going to erect a statue of someone, who would it be?”  That was followed by several “Buttheads” in search of a Beavis pointing out that I said “erect”. Here are some of the people that were mentioned:

  • Lots of people went Tom Petty
  • Jodi chose Robert Plant

  • Josh Schroeder – President Trump for making liberals cry Like little schoolgirls
  • Craig Stanton – Jerry Lewis, Humanitarian
  • Michael McCabe – The maker of Viagra

  • Michelle Jensen – My husband… He’s the strongest, most kind hearted man I know! Not to mention, he’s the definition of perseverance, dedication and loyalty! He’s my ❤ (Awwww)
  • Tom Barney – Harry Truman. Great President. Last common person to be President.
  • Jimmy Graham – Artie Lange… that way if it falls over it will look natural.
  • Vini Lopez – My statue would be for all of the fishermen and women that work on the Jersey Shore! A very hard working bunch!!
  • Pete Michaels – Neil Armstrong

  • Paul Benn – The Invisible Man
  • Kitty Powell – Bruce Springsteen
  • Mike Matisa – John Cardarelli
  • Mitchell Siegel – Rosa Parks
  • Judi Yaccarino – My dad – not a perfect man, but an intelligent man who went out of his way to defend injustices, loved his family and learned from his mistakes. He was perfectly imperfect.
  • Ed Rufolo – Jack Klugman dressed as Oscar Madison in the robe, Met hat, and cigar in his mouth. Loved that show.
