Stone Heads On Doorsteps

 - Oct 5, 2007
Are the replica stone heads recently found on Northern England doorsteps a marketing scheme? More than likely. That, or someone has a lot of time on their hands, or is getting ready to ride the tail of Halebop, if you know what I mean. The stone statues mimic their larger brethren from Easter Island. The intriguing part of this story is that each of the 18 inch heads have the same riddle attached.

"Twinkle twinkle like a star, does love blaze less from afar?" it reads, with the word "paradox" written around the points of a star.
