Giant Things of Lake Erie

Monday, May 26, 2008
I recently caught on film (with my digital camera) this rare creature which has been haunting the Lakeside area of Ohio's Lake Erie shore for the past five decades. It was vastly larger than my van, which scared me stupid, just like Ernest.

I believe this lumbering behemoth was returning to The Prehistoric Forest region after lunching at the nearby Cheesehaven.

According to my field guide this is a Goudasaurus and is made entirely of soft Dutch cheese.

Uh... I don't recall Gouda being quite that color, but then again, it is 50 years old... ;c)

Does the Goudasaurus change color with age or the seasons? Or, does it have some chameleon DNA? I have seen this rare creature, but don't recall that particular color morph.

I had several giant horse sightings on my recent trip to western Lake Erie, and thought of you, but couldn't get photos.

If you are in the Indiana area, you must visit Muncie, about an hour north of Indy. You would be in giant statue heaven. There are giant purple hippos, lumberjacks, etc... I will have to get some pics next time I am up there! I think there is at least seven, maybe more giant statues, plus bonus chainsaw art to boot.

Here is a link to someone who blogged about it-

I had no idea that giant cheese creatures were roaming in the wild! I think I'll get my fork ...
