What Should Be Done To The Joe Paterno Statue? Let's Discuss!

With the recent discovery that the Joe Paterno statue outside of Beaver Stadium is no longer being guarded by police, the Deadspin staff couldn't help but start brainstorming ways that the statue could be altered.

So far we have come up with the following ideas:

  • Replace his outstretched index finger with a shower head
  • Give it a new, artsy name. Like maybe "Of Rape and a Man."
  • Put a funny hat on it
  • Allow it to stay up only if Jay Paterno promises to stand next to it and and spout insane gospel about leadership and legacy for the rest of his life
  • Via commenter Erg: "Put statues of little boys behind Paterno in attitudes of beseechment. Leave Paterno's statue as it is, with his back to the children."

Please share your ideas in the discussion section below.
