Someone Put Googly Eyes on a Statue in Savannah and Police Are Not Amused
Someone Put Googly Eyes on a Statue in Savannah and Police Are Not Amused Googly eyes on the Nathanael Greene Monument City of Savannah/Facebook Joelle Goldstein October 12, 2018 11:40 PM
Things got sticky in Georgia this week after a historical monument was given googly eyes.
The Savannah Police Department is currently searching for the suspect who is responsible for adding a new feature to the Nathanael Greene Monument, reports WSAV .
SPD arrived at Johnson Square on Thursday afternoon after they received a call about a trespasser, and noticed that the statue — which had been there since 1902 — now had some hard-to-miss eyes.
The statue of Greene, a former Savannah resident, was created in honor of the officer’s service and leadership during the Revolutionary War. He is considered one of the country’s top officers from the war — just second to George Washington.
Needless to say, local police were not amused by the prank and immediately removed the eyes from the statue, WSAV said.

Although no damage was caused by the removal process, the person who gave Greene his eyes is facing a trespassing charge — since the person had to jump the fence around the historical monument — and now, the city is out to find the person behind the prank.
In Georgia, criminal trespass — which includes “defacing, mutilating or defiling” a monument to a deceased person who served in the military — is considered a misdemeanor offense , but can be deemed a felony if the damage exceeds $500.
“Who did this?! Someone placed googly eyes on our historic #NathanaelGreene statue in #JohnsonSquare,” the City of Savanah said in a statement on Facebook. “It may look funny but harming our historic monuments and public property is no laughing matter, in fact, it’s a crime.”

Meanwhile, the Internet found humor in the googly eye joke, with many Facebook users commenting on the city’s post, claiming the issue was not as important as others in the community and sharing their own comical googly eye memes.
“I always wanted to visit Savannah, but now that I see how unsafe it is, no thanks! I’ll consider it once they catch this psychopath. Is the FBI involved yet?” one user sarcastically wrote.

“So I’m not a part of this community or anything, but you guys do realize you just dared your entire city to googly eyes all of your monuments right?” added someone else. “Just pick the eyes off and move on.”
“There’s literally a town that’s completely leveled right now and we are worried about $2 eyeballs that barely stick on a good day?” another user wrote, referencing Hurricane Michael . “Let’s worry about something a little more serious. It’d cost 50x more just to put them in jail for a day.”
Savannah Police are currently investigating the incident and reviewing nearby cameras to find the googly eye bandit. They are asking anyone with information to call the Savannah police tip line at 912-525-3124.

Cheech & Chong’s “Up in Smoke” – A look back at the stoner classic
When “Up in Smoke” went up on the big screen 40 years ago, it turned out to be the perfect vehicle for the humor of Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong. And their vehicle of choice, as they searched L.A. for marijuana, was a low rider nicknamed The Love Machine.
John Blackstone asked the comic duo if they were ever under the influence while filming. “Oh, no, sir,” they both replied.
“No, officer. Or whatever!” said Marin.
Chong added, “I use it for medical purposes only.”
Getting high in the low rider: Tommy Chong and Cheech Marin in “Up in Smoke.”
Paramount Pictures That “Up in Smoke” would be remembered four decades later seemed unlikely when it was released. It was a low-budget movie starring two guys who had never before been in a movie. They admitted that at the time they were just trying to figure out which end of the camera to use.
Paramount Pictures And they weren’t the only beginners on the set; so was the director, Lou Adler: “We’re set up and we’re pretty much ready to go, and everybody is waiting. And the [first A.D.] leans over to me and he says, ‘Say action.’ I’d forgotten to say ‘action’!”
Together, these first-time filmmakers were looking for laughs from a subject that until then had been depicted on screen as a menace.
The 1936 movie “Reefer Madness,” which referred to marijuana as “the burning weed with its roots in hell,” helped lead to the first federal laws criminalizing the drug. “Up in Smoke” was all about evading those laws.
That routine started on stage in Los Angeles music clubs in the early ’70s. One night Lou Adler was in the crowd: “That’s the first time I saw Tommy and Cheech. Basically I said to the guy that was with me at the time, ‘I’d like to record these guys.’ And he said, ‘I think you’re crazy. How are you gonna record ’em?'”
Record producer Lou Adler directed his first film with the comedy duo Cheech and Chong.
CBS News Adler was already a successful music producer with big hits and big stars.
Marin recalled, “So, went into his office the next day. He says, ‘Well, what do you wanna do?’ ‘I don’t know.’ Looked around. There’s gold records everywhere. ‘Make a record?’ ‘What kind?’ ‘Gold!'”
Chong continued: “And so he said, ‘What do you need?’ And I said, ‘$1,000 and a little tape recorder.’ And he said, ‘Okay, you got it.’ And then Cheech jumped in, ‘There’s two of us.’
“That’s right,” Marin said, ”So, we need $2,000!'”
Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong.
CBS News With Adler they started thinking about making a movie. He told Blackstone, “We had various ideas. The first idea was Cheech and Chong hits, do the routines. And then it was Tommy, he wrote a song called ‘Up in Smoke.’ And we said, ‘That’s a title.'”
For the 40th anniversary, they added some updated lyrics, acknowledging that marijuana is now legal for recreational or medicinal use in more than half the states. “We’re just coming out of Prohibition right now!” Marin said.
Blackstone asked, “Is ‘Up in Smoke” as relevant as it was 40 years ago?”
“Probably more relevant,” said Marin, “because all the kids that see it for the first time go, ‘Oh, that’s what’s happening. When did they make this? This is happening today!’ Sign of a classic!”
It’s a classic, Adler says, because of the comedy, not because of the pot. “We decided early not to carry a banner for marijuana,” he said.
“But then, why not make it about something else other than marijuana, at a time when marijuana was frowned upon?”
“That was their material!” Adler said. “I was looking to make a film with these two comedians. And their routine was not baseball, it was marijuana.”
