Just don't tell anyone you borrowed it.

I overheard this conversation while I was walking across the catwalk from the Excalibur to the Tropicana. For those unfamiliar with this section of The Strip, New York New York hotel is directly across from the Excalibur. It has a bunch of goofy shit, rollercoasters, the hotel is shaped like a bunch of skyscrapers, and then a big copy of the Statue of Liberty.

Man: Oh my, the Statue of Liberty...
Woman: What about it?
Man: I'm just wondering how they got it here so fast.

The woman proceeds to just stare at him for a moment, not really following what he's saying.

Man: I'm wondering how they got it here so quickly. Do you think it's an exhibit or something? I just saw it a week ago when I was in New York.
Woman: You're joking, right?
Man: No! They do quick work. Although I remember it being bigger...

I couldn't contain my laughter as I walked by them. The man just stared at me like I was crazy but the woman had this look on her face like she was constipated.
