I thought the invisible men statues are pretty cool.

Not impressed unless it is in  Minnesota.

I'm really glad China has a whole bunch of money to be blowing in stuff like that. I wonder where they get it from.

I was going to joke that in addition to the largest ball of twine, Minnesota also has a Tweed Museum.

(it was just the name of one of the primary founders though.)

It's China. Worst you have to worry about is cat, rat, or a baby Chinese girl.

I didn't think the Chinese were too big on circular forms. You know, what with being subjugated by Japan last century.

The Out Of Body Experience sculpture is pretty fantastic.

Yobogoya, the taste will destroy-ya!
The cheapest bucket of beef in Illinoi-a!
Yobogoya, Yobogoya, Yoyoyoyoyobagoya!
Yobagoya, makes you jump for joy-a!
What kind of meat is it? It's a mystery for ya.
Legally we're not allowed to call it meat,
So bring the whole family for a tasty brown treat!

I like the BMW made from stone. Rendering a facsimile of something from the wrong material is interesting to me.

For instance a fuzzy duck cast in bronze.
