However, in the aftermath of the meltdown occasioned by the 'toxic debt' farrago and the 'credit crunch' hysteria, it must be clear even to those with severely impaired mental facilities, that the symbolism of 'The Charging Bull' is completely misplaced and inappropriate.
The Bull needs hurling into the East River and new, more relevant statue or statues erected in its place, that might serve to warn future generations from ever being suckered into financial self-destruction again.
A Snake in The Grass - reflecting the public's revulsion and opinion of those responsible for engendering these calamitous happenings.
So there we have it - a marble plinth bedecked with A HEADLESS CHICKEN, A FAT CAT & A SNAKE IN THE GRASS. Or to economise in this period of recession, repossessions and redundancies, just one statue of A FAT HEADLESS SNAKE!
