The International Herald Tribune recently reported about myths surrounding Michelangelo's David and its mysterious magical qualities.

Among others, people around Florence have alleged for many years about seeing a pale naked man resembling the statue walking the streets at night. Rumors began to spread that like Pygmalion's Galatea, David had come to life!

Recently,   The Accademia dell'Arte del Disegno, in Florence,  inexplicably closed its doors for a few days.   When pressed for an explanation, spokesman Rudolfo Laspari, said that they were just  taking inventory, to be followed by a short vacation in the United States.

Shortly thereafter there were reports of a naked, circumcised man,  walking the streets of New York.   It was assumed that the man was the famous Naked Cowboy,  for in fact the two,  like Clark Kent and Superman , had never been seen together.

At a McDonald's Restaurant in Time Square, customers also claimed to spot the man.  Then later that day at the Stage Deli having a large stuffed sandwich.  Every day for two weeks there would be reported sitings, with one inconsistency, the man's weight.

Then suddenly one day at the Palm Steakhouse on Second Avenue an obese naked man was apprehended.

The headline in the New York Post read:  Man Arrested for Indecent Exposure;  Taken to Small Claims Court!

Bill O'Reilly of Fox News was outraged that the authorities said the evidence was too small to charge him with anything, but a misdemeanor!

As mysteriously as the man arrived he was bailed out.  It would later be learned that he failed to show on his court date.

Suddenly,  two days after this man was bailed out The Accademia dell'Arte del Disegno, in Florence,  reopened with no explanation about it's short closing or the strange appearance of Michelangelo's David.
