The Last Straw

Welcome To The Beet Generation

Norfolk farmer Marlon Brooks was struggling to come up with a fearsome enough scarecrow until he created one that looks like singer Amy Winehouse. He says it's scaring off the pigeons that kept attacking his sugar beet. The scarecrow has her trademark beehive and tattoos, and Farmer Brooks reckons the real Amy should win another award - for services to the farming industry.

FOOTNOTE: Scare grow.

LOL...I'd probably run for my life if I came across a scare crow that looked like Amy too! Either that or peck her eyes out. IF they can stay open long enough the see them...LOL!

Hope all is well in your world

Good morning to you.

IF you would, it'd be lovely if you some how gave "the rub" to a collaboration I've joined called Dented Cans. dentedcans.wordpress.com.

Yep...she really does look kinda scary. Good choice.

Even the birds are afraid of her! Really funny! Don't expect she thinks so!

Wonder if a facsimile of Amy would work for keeping the deer out of my garden.....:)

Thanks for your comment on my blog, David!

Does it punch fans, too?
