Japanese Scarecrow

Everything's so much weirder in Japan ... their scarecrows are no exception:

While frightening the birds away, about 60 scarecrows along a stretch of the Route 280 Bypass in Aomori are attracting the attention of passing motorists. The scarecrow display, which includes one modeled after sumo wrestler Asashoryu scandalously playing soccer, is part of Kakashi Road 280 (kakashi means “scarecrow”), a recently established annual September event designed to stimulate the local economy and welcome the 2010 opening of Tohoku Shinkansen Shin-Aomori station. Organizers hope to eventually create 150 scarecrows to watch over the 15-kilometer stretch of road.

The best scarecrow is apparently a dead bird. Hang it from a pole or branch by one leg letting it dangle with the wings out spread.

No surprise, since it's made by 4yrs old kids in kindergartens as you COULD see.
What make it weirder is how you treat these news as "OMG everything in Japan is creepy".
