The creepiest/randomest thing I saw today

Driving on a less traveled road (Larpenter Ave by the St. Paul Campus farm fields), I cruised by a random and creepy item perched on a street corner. It looked as though it was waiting for the bus or a taxi.

It was a military uniform of some kind stuffed and tied up to a gurney that was standing on end. A happy human skull (perhaps fake, but this was unconfirmed) was placed on the uniform- just a grinnin’ in the sun.


Perhaps it was some sort of marker for an event “Turn right at the creepy skull army guy on a gurney”, but it had no sign or other detail to lead the passerby to confirm that.

Perhaps it was a real soldier whose ride to the VA never showed up……

I got a big laugh about the ride not showing up. That would seem about right...

What a great, strange thing to see. Thanks for passing it on!

maybe it was some sort of obscure political commentary.

Just as an update- my friend drove by yesterday and this skull guy was no longer there. I guess I just got lucky!
