Shaq to Fans: I’ll pose for a Tacky Tourist Photo!

Boston Celtics star Shaquille O'Neal has promised to pose as a statue for fans, a la the bronzed Red Auerbach

Why wait until you’re dead to let fans climb all over your likeness?

According to the Boston Herald, basketball lovers will soon have a chance to pose with Shaq while he pretends to be a statue in Harvard Square. The groundrules: No talking, no autographs, just snapshots like you’d take with any tourist landmark.

Here’s the scoop:

Shamroq, as he would now like to be called, told 98.5 The Sports Hub’s Toucher and Rich yesterday that he’ll tweet the deets soon. But remember, there’s “no conversation.” Just sitting and snapping of pics for an hour. And shooing away pigeons, we guess!

“Am I allowed to put my arm around you?” asked Toucher.

“Yes, of course, I’m a statue,” said Shaq.

“Can I put my son in your lap?” inquired Fred.

“Of course,” said the big (patient) one. “I’m a statue.”

We hope that tourists are nicer to Shaq than they are to Red!

Digging for bronze mucus apparently is a turn-on for some people.
