Warning: The following post will to attempt the break the record for most references to the "I'd buy that for a dollar!" line in 'RoboCop.'
A RoboCop statue in Detroit? I'd buy that for a dollar! However, Dave Bing, Mayor of Detroit, is less receptive to the idea.
Bing recently took to the Internet to solicit ways to clean up his city. Twitter user MT offered the creative suggestion of erecting a RoboCop statue --- as RoboCop is, in MT's words, "a GREAT ambassador for Detroit." Unfortunately, Bing played the part of buzzkill, perhaps after taking a payout from Omni Consumer Products, by replying (via Badass Digest): "There are not any plans to erect a statue to Robocop"
Bing thought the idea was quashed, but MSNBC reports that RoboCop fans are rallying around the suggestion. And now they're begging the mayor to build that statue? I'd buy that for a dollar!
