When it was built in 1998, this massive, majestic fork in Springfield, Missouri jutting defiantly into the sky against the diets of the world stood before a restaurant. That restaurant went out of business. Now the building is occupied by an advertising agency. It must be a marvelous navigational aid. How can they help prospective clients find their offices? Tell them to look for the giant fork.
This is one of 10 bizarre and surreal public sculptures rounded up by When on Earth. You can view the others here, which include a headless businessman and a giant erupting from the ground.
