This is Kissimmee's newest version of the Statue of Liberty. I was driving home yesterday when this monstrosity appeared on a corner lot where two main roads intersect. I had to pull over and take the photo. It is an advertising blowup for Liberty Tax Services.

While in Paris I saw a smaller version of our Lady Liberty and this one does not resemble her at all. In fact the face reminds me of the Muppet, Miss Piggy. I guess she'll remain where she is until tax season ends in April.

Too funny! Did you see the one on Ile des Cygnes or Luxembourg Gardens?

Oh they'll blow up anything these days. You're right, this one looks like Miss Piggy for sure. Makes you want to walk by with a thumb tack in your hand!

Eeeeek, what a monstruosity!
I'll second Virginia's suggestion...

Thanks for the comments.. I think it's awful but doubt I'd have the courage to stick a pin in it.. It would probably take a sword to take it down.
