Woopsie: Tourist Destroys Museum Statue After Backing Into It Taking A Selfie

November 10, 2016

Because breaking things is all the rage these days, this is a shot of the 18th century statue of Saint Michael that a Brazilian tourist recently tripped into and broke while taking a selfie at the National Museum of Ancient Art in Lisbon, Portugal. As you may or may not know, Saint Michael is the patron saint of grocers, mariners, paratroopers, and police officers, sadly none of which were able to save him from an oblivious museum goer. Me? I've never broken anything at a museum in my entire life, and I've definitely taken more than my fair share of selfies touching marble penises and porcelain breasts. When reached for comment about the severity of the damage done to the statue, all the king's horses and all the king's men said this was Humpty Dumpty all over again.

Keep going for a shot of Saint Michael during better times.

Thanks to hairless, who agrees if you're going to break something at a museum, try to make it the heart of a person in a painting. I'm sorry, this will just never work out, you're 2-D.
