Go to the Boing Boing link for more info. The statue was placed on a trail in Florida. Can you imagine running along some backcountry trail, doing your Ultrarunning thing, and all of a sudden you look ahead and see that?
I can well imagine simply dropping dead on the spot. Here's hoping that you or I NEVER encounter such a creepy thing. May our trail miles and hours be benevolent and healing and fun. Anything but this.
