It may not surprise you to know that there are some big Indiana Jones fans out there, and one of them has quite a collection of props going. Among them is a series of replicas of the Aztec idol from Raiders Of The Lost Ark.
I’ll just say it. I want one of these idols (and a stand) for my desk at work. Now ideally, I’d have a dark office at the end of a long hall to go with it, but sadly, I do not. I just think it would be funny to have that on my desk all the time, but then never really acknowledge it. You know, talk to people as if there weren’t this giant golden fertility idol sitting there. Offer them no explanation for it. I guess I don’t really have enough foot traffic of new people though to put it to good use, and most of the folks at my work probably wouldn’t get it anyway. Which is too bad, because what a great prank it would be to come in one morning to find it replaced with a sack of sand.
