Above: In 1978, University of Wisconsin students Leon Varjian and Jim Mallon, representing the prank student government part Pale & Shovel, promised that, if they won the election, they would bring the Statue of Liberty to Lake Mendota. Much to everyone’s surprise (including Varjian and Mallon’s) they won! With $4,000 in funds, they assembled their Lady Liberty on the frozen lake. This is the picture of the original statue, which sunk when the ice melted.  After that, another statue was created (see the article, above).
