Beep Beep Recycled

He -- or she -- lives in an eastbound rest area outside of Las Cruces, New Mexico and watches over the traffic speeding below. Twenty feet tall, with a belly made of old shoes, and a body made of... just about anything normally found in a dump. Scrap metal, telephone cords, old tires, and even a computer keyboard form the rest of the body, the head, the huge feet, and the tail feathers. Did I mention this is a giant roadrunner? Wile E. Coyote doesn't stand a chance.

OMG! I love really should submit that to "Wow That's . . . ." at (a friend of mine).


Is this a piece of "art" or what?

Froggi -- I don't think I can -- I didn't see it on a cycle!

Aydin -- I heard that it used to be at a landfill (aka, Its Nest?), and when the landfill closed people moved it here to save it. It's art if you think it is -- and I think it is!
