What the hay?!

Vanessa here...

...with more adventures from my trip south.

In addition to my worshipping Chick-fil-a, I was also exposed to some very interesting art work. Griz wanted to make a pilgrimage to her alma mater (Clemson), so we drove these back country roads to get there. We almost ran off the road when we came upon this large open field on the left hand side of the road featuring the most curious form of art...hay art.

Now, for those of you not familiar with hay and farming, they cut the grass, let it dry on the ground for a while and then this big-ass machine comes along and rolls the hay into this 100 pound roll of hay. Farmers will "serve" this hay to their flock of cows so they can munch on it over a long period of time. However, this farmer found another use for his hay...check it out...

A monster coming from the trees...


A new fangled truck...


Sikorsky's new helicopter...


A bunny rabbit...


An inch worm...


Lying there like a spider...


A big doggie...


Some strange looking deer...


Anyone up for a boat ride?...


Get on that party train...


Captain Caveman?...


Arrrrrrgggghhh, matey...


See...I can't make this shit up, people. Spread the word. Share the link. Let's start a new Internet craze of bailed hay pictures!

Enjoy and hang loose!

Oh, come on "j," it's hilarious! A hay helicopter? Or a boat that floats on hay? It's frickin' genius! This shit should be in the Museum of Natural History or something. *eeeeg*

I once saw a roll of hay painted orange like a pumpkin and a face drawn on it. But it was halloween time, so it made sense. This is just fucking weird.

Dead car on hay bales instead of cinderblocks? How organic and environmentally sound.

LOL Anonymous #2! And Anonymous #1...I *saw* the Big Peach. It's actually called the Peachnoid and it's a water tower in Gaffney (where my friend is from.) Definitely memorable.

Thanks for the comment, Charmander. I should introduce you to Griz. *G*

That was fun to view. I can only imagine your reaction when you first saw them!
Gives new meaning to the exclamation,
"WHAT THE HAY????!"

I've decided I'm going to quit my job and roam the countryside looking for odd art that I can post here. *BG* Maybe not...that student loan won't pay itself off.
