    Took the kids to the National Cattle Congress Fair here in town this weekend, and we saw this thing walking around, it was really cool looking.

    I dont know who this is, but he would wrap his arms around people when they went and stood next to him.

    Reminds me of when we were in Vegas last year, there were these two people painted silver and looked like metal statues and when someone would walk by or say something they would jump at them and scare the &hit out of them. They would stand still for several minutes not moving at all. There was also a person dressed as a US army statue painted head to toe in gold paint with his bag laying on the ground next to him, he would take donations for one of the veterans charities, you could take your pic with him for some donation. It is amazing how still they were.

    And if you didn't catch him you'd sure scare him to death and he'd never be back again! He'd never trust another tree again, lol!

    Very cool statue, DoIt99! I agree, great joke for Halloween front yards! T'Mann, we saw a lady sprayed white in downtown San Diego, with white dress, looked like the ballerina in a jewelry box, and she swayed to the music and was on a turning pedestal as well, very unique!
