Woman poses next to what must be a Sammy Sosa wax scultpure … wait, what? (photo)


I’m not sure why this story is considered newsworthy, but a photo of a young woman posing next to a wax sculpture of former Chicago Cubs slugger Sammy Sosa is making its way around the Internet. Sure, Sosa’s ill-conceived Pinterest page was hilarious and warranted attention, but this pic? Strange.

I have to say that it is an odd setup for a Madame Tussauds display. Usually, wax figures are put in some kind of relevant scene to help patrons understand the person’s historical significance and why he or she is worthy of inclusion in the was museum.

What’s that? That’s really Sammy Sosa? Wow. What happened to his face? And here I was about to say that the figure looked “so reeeeeeal…”
