You ain’t seen nothing Yeti

Far be it from me to discourage anyone from acquiring this mostly lovable semi-fictional character:

Bigfoot the Garden Yeti by Design Toscano

Mighty and stunning, the Design Toscano Bigfoot The Garden Yeti Statue is an attractive choice for any home. It features a large yeti that is either on the lookout for some prey or just exploring the surroundings. You can place this statue either at home or next to the trees of your backyard. Made from the toughest quality of 100% resin, the Bigfoot The Garden Yeti Statue from Design Toscano comes with the kind of durability that lasts for generations. This statue is resistant to UV as well as fading and coated in a brown finish. It can be kept as good as new by storing it indoors during the harshest winters. It is available in multiple sizes.

Not even the most abominable snowman can deal with the worst snow.

Two sizes are available: the taller is 28.5 inches, not nearly enough to overshadow your life-size My Little Pony, which shouldn’t be out in your garden in the first place, even if it’s Fluttershy.

List price is $136, but at this writing it’s marked down to $96.

(Via our old friend Lisa Paul.)

Addendum: I was humming this darn thing while cutting and pasting, and I figured, why not?

Live from 1976. (Jonathan Richman, to my eternal surprise, is older than I am.)

    Not even three feet tall? Boo.

    I would want a real, life-sized skunk ape statue for my backyard, especially if the city starts getting snoopy about brush and grass height again.

    A full-sized one set back among the trees at Mustache World Headquarters, where it might be just visible from the road in the wintertime, would be a nice tribute to the Happy Valley Horror.

    Hm. It’s “Hallowe’en Season” already, so maybe one of the party places has one. Maybe even one on a motion detector that roars or something when someone walks by…

    This pose is reminiscent of the famous hoax bigfoot film from the sixties. A deliberate choice, I think.

    filllyjonk, I feel your pain, about the snooty city folks. Last year, my golf-course-lawn neighbor narked on me for my 8-foot tall sunflowers, among other pollinator-friendly natives. I followed the agent around my yard, as she snapped photos of all the most bee-friendly plants (sunflowers, cowpen daisies, other types of daisies). I explained to her that these were NOT weeds, and that the bees and butterflies use them, daily. I asked if she realized that we lost 40 percent of our bees last year, in Oklahoma? She replied (I’m not making this up), “Yeah, I know. I’m a beekeeper”. Could’ve knocked me over with a feather.
    The good news is, I got in touch with some folks, who got in touch with other folks (did you know that OKC has a “Sustainability Office”?) and I got out of paying the fine, and I got to keep most of my sunflowers. The head of code enforcement came out to work with me, and I did have to sacrifice a few.

    I explained to him that I had a nest of bumble bees in one corner of the garden, so would not be able to ‘trim it back’ like the rest, because I’d learned that you can only go so close to their nest. His response was “Well, you shouldn’t have bumblebees on your property. You’re gonna get sued”.

    Sigh.
