There’s a new petition circulating that calls for a statue of the late GWAR frontman Oderus Urungus to replace a statue of Rober E. Lee in his home state of Virginia. Oderus, real name David Brockie, was born in Canada but moved to Virginia as a child. “Robert E. Lee is a failed war general that supported a racist cause,” says the petition. “We the scumdogs of the universe call on the city of Richmond to erect a statue of great local leader Oderus Urungus in its place.” The petition has already received 15,000 signatures.
