Odd sighting of the day


As I drove down Gasoline Alley in Red Deer this morning, I saw a sign advertising "Statues for sale". I looked around, expecting to see some stone fountains or the like. Instead I see two giant chicken statues. They had to have been about 10 feet tall, one was white, and one was a brown/black. First of all, where in the world could they have found these fibreglass chickens, and secondly, who on earth would want to buy them? I suppose you could play a practical joke with them like they do with the flamingos and buzzards, but you would need to rent a truck and trailer just to transport them. I'll be curious to see if they're still around in a week...

How much did they cost? I always wanted a giant chicken but two giant chickens would make all my childhood dreams come true!! Can you get a picture of one for me.
