An extremely funny prankster glued googly eyes to the statue of Revolutionary War commander Nathaniel Greene; the City of Savannah took to its Facebook page to insist that this was "not funny" but rather "vandalism" and saying that the police had been involved.
Savannah Police are not impressed by the city's wrath. Noting that the eyes didn't do any damage, the police promised to review its CCTV footage to see if they could prosecute someone for trespassing.
"It may look funny but harming our historic monuments and public property is no laughing matter," the city wrote. "In fact, it's a crime."
City officials urged anyone with information to contact local police. "We are hoping to find the person responsible!" they wrote.
