This Forever Alone statue is very meta. Or maybe it’s ironic. We’re not sure. But it’s a wonderful 7 inch tall 3D-print of the famous Internet meme. We think it’s ironic/meta (semantics are hard) because the Forever Alone guy is, well, forever alone, right? But if you buy this statue and place it on your dinner table as is suggested in the image below, you won’t technically be alone. You’ll have the statue as a friend. Which defeats, in a way, what the statue represents.
Oh sure, a statue is not a real person, you’ll say. We suppose you’re right, and the fact that you’d accept the company of an inanimate object at dinner only further emphasizes your loneliness. But still, perhaps some of you see our point. Or maybe it’s time we stopped thinking about stuff in quite this much depth. It is, after all, just a darn statue. It’s $30, and it’s exclusive to Thinkgeek.
