I know Irony is allegedly dead

But must it be repeatedly dug up and mutilated like poor Pope Formosus?
The Hall of Famous Missourians in the Missouri State Capitol is filled with the busts of famous people from the Show-Me State... Right-wing radio personality Rush Limbaugh...will soon be joining that esteemed group.
Okay, that's ridiculous. Could it be any worse?

Would I rhetorically ask if it could not? 
On Feb. 13, Kansas City, Mo. sculptor E. Spencer Schubert posted on his blog that he was in the process of sculpting busts of Limbaugh and Dred Scott
Didn't poor Mr. Scott suffer enough indignities the 19th Century?  Must he spend his posterity in the proximity of that posterior?

When it comes to Rusty, like the three ex-Mrs. Limbaughs, haven't we all had enough of that?
