Pterodactyl Swoops Down On Surfer Statue

A bronze statue of a young surfer can't seem to catch a break. Since the sculpture was unveiled four years ago near San Diego, pranksters have dressed him up as a birthday clown, a Hooters waitress and cupid. Over the weekend, a stealth artist outdid them all with an elaborate prehistoric diorama of a volcano and a pterodactyl carrying the much maligned surfer away.
