If you spend any time driving around country roads in Wisconsin, you will eventually encounter the Midwestern phenomenon I call the GFA Syndrome. We Midwesterners tend to create giant fiberglass animals and place them in public view. The giant muskellunge in Hawyard. The giant loon in Mercer. The big mouse in Fennimore. Delevan's giraffes and elephants.
There are also wonderful examples of GFAs in other states -- Audubon, Iowa has has the giant Hereford, Albert. Idaho has a giant potato (shocker). Apparently there are giant lobsters in the northeast. Crabs in Maryland.
Anyway...I was driving across Highway 13 and saw this cute little guy on the side of the road. The addition of a billboard built into his side made him even more interesting. Herefords are not normally green and white either.
Better yet...you can rent the Giant Fiberglass Animal.
I am SO tempted.
