Texas Town Collapses In Chaos After "Selfie Statue" Erected In City Square

A statue depicting two women taking a selfie has destroyed the innocence of a small Texas town named after the country music legends, Sugarland.

Sugar Land, Tex., a suburb of the joyless swampland known as Houston (I’m allowed to say this. I did ten years there), has come under fire after a statue of two women posing for a selfie together hit the town square — reminding future generations of a much simpler, happier time when all people did was play on their phones. You know, before the invasion decimated the lands.

From Today:

Residents and visitors in Sugar Land, near Houston, are puzzled or upset about the presence of the bronze statue of two women taking a selfie in front of the city’s town hall.

The statue was donated as part of a 10-piece collection by Sugar Land resident Sandy Levin.

Another piece nearby shows a seated man strumming a guitar. Sugar Land’s Parks and Recreation Advisory Board said the statue project seeks to represent “activities that occur in the Square.”

That’s not even an iPhone. Come on, guys. At least get it right.

Is this a new societal low? Possibly. I don’t think we live in a generation that will be reflected on in a positive light, but history must remember the days of SnapChat, Instagram and Facebook uploads. If for no other reason than to analyze the downfall of a species.

Three prominent citizens groups signed off on the project, so it doesn’t look like this statue is going anywhere unless a group of unruly teens pulls a ‘Hussein‘ on it.

Enjoy the artwork, y’all.
