The Wonderful World of Scarecrows (Fifth Edition)

untitled2

Sorry that I haven’t done any new posts for three weeks. Since I’ve been working on a project that took me about four weeks to complete. Anyway, given that fall’s coming up, you’re bound to see scarecrows everywhere. After all, fall is usually a time of harvest. Despite that critters can get into the crops all year long. Still, scarecrows were originally erected to scare them off at a time when most pesticides didn’t exist.  Nonetheless, they’re usually made out of straw, wooden stakes, and old clothes. Yet, many communities can also hold scarecrow contests showing all the unique straw figures out there. So for your reading pleasure, I give you another assortment of unique scarecrows. Enjoy.

  1. These scarecrows will check your speed.
_102688221_capture11

Don’t worry, you’re good. But if you go like a race car driver, they will mark you down and give you a ticket.

2. Don’t mind these three old men.

0a3dc153c9b7ec3e746250aa5014fddd

They’re just hanging around in their suits. A couple even read the paper.

3. It’s always fun and games with the Cat in the Hat.

0bf4389e7682f7156f59ca17fe13427b

Though don’t see the Mike Myers adaptation. Still, this is a fair rendition for a scarecrow festival. Sure will make Dr. Seuss proud.

4.  The giant crow’s got the last laugh.

1revenge1-web

You can see this crow’s made out of trash bags. And yes, I think it could scare off any critters. Since it’s a giant freaking bird.

5. This scary scarecrow has a sensitive side.

2e2d263c56ba99d31062047c331f0e03

Sure, he might kill a bunch of misbehaving teenagers on a dark night. But he likes hanging out with the birds.

6. You won’t get anywhere rowing on dry land.

5aabaf2a10d5cf83e4a0cb449fd70775

Well, they’re supposed to be fishing. Still, like their boat name Crow-2.

7. These old folks get by on wheelbarrow.

6c43485146ef13fc87973abc3803bcf0

Since they’re homeless and their car’s been repossessed. Still, these are delightful.

8. Bet you’ve never met the scarecrow Boy Who Lived.

10-19-2017-6-36-36-AM-5534722

I’ve put a Harry Potter scarecrow before. Yet, this one at least gives him darker hair.

9.  They’re off to see the wizard. The wonderful Wizard of Oz.

54bda1a30953509272358d0ebfa69493

Wizard of Oz seems to be a common motif in scarecrow festivals. Maybe it’s the Scarecrow. This display includes the Wicked Witch of the West though.

10. Uncle Sam does it the American way.

59d55bee79b52.image

Yet, he somehow decided to shave before getting atop of his high horse. Still, please don’t mention anything about Cheeto Fascist.

11. This scarecrow is practically perfect in every way.

4-Renee-Simon

Since she’s Mary Poppins, y’all. And I don’t mean Yondo from Guardians of the Galaxy either.

12. Curious George always drives the Man in the Yellow Hat crazy.

59e3f70cd0282.image

Since he’s a curious little monkey who shouldn’t be kept as a pet. No wonder he starts a lot of trouble.

13. This scarecrow girl has a green thumb.

403ef0cd2941e5190f752ca9a92f8186

Though raking is always a chore. But that doesn’t stop him from being excited about it.

15. He’s all prepared for the wharf.

562eb7bbd804e.image

After all, he wears his raincoat and galoshes. So he’s all set for the fishing boat.

16. Behold, the mad tangerine commissar himself.

1024px-Chillerton_&_Gatcombe_Scarecrow_Festival_2017_27

Here he stands on a podium to spew some disparaging remarks about protestors, minorities, the news media, the law enforcement agencies investigating him, political enemies, and immigrants. The Cheeto-Fascist wreaks devastation onto America he certainly won’t make great again. Because he’s a sociopath.

17. “Help me, Obi Wan Kenobi, you’re my only hope.

2017_scarecrows_02

Funny how they use an old vacuum cleaner as R2-D2. Though I think he’s supposed to be bigger. Like enough for a dwarf to fit inside him.

87050a4e232296e0f0be5bccd94a0453

Well, it’s covered in burlap. But the straw’s inside. Still, better not throw a bone at it.

23. You’d call this scarecrow a real jack in the box.

20170915_134323-thumb600x450

He’s between corn and sunflowers. Has nothing to do with the restaurant, however.

24. You’d think this lady was crazy about her cats.

29. These American farmers are just like apple pie.

7953148162b2ee215412bfc2a2306e64

Yes, it’s another rendition of American Gothic. Yet, these two don’t have pumpkin heads. There’s also a cow.

30. Seems like you’re in a Mexican restaurant in November.

1535124583128

The three mariachis wear Dia de los Muertos masks. The waiter presents a bottle of tequila.

37. Hope this monster doesn’t scare your child.

c0627e8ba8605edd915fe61c37ad20fb

He’s actually Sully from Monsters Inc. Sure he scares children. But outside his work, he’s sweet guy. Just ask Boo.

38. This large straw dragon will scare the crows away.

cambriascarecrowsdragon29392

Some Game of Thrones fans must have too much time on their hands. Still, that’s excellent work on this scarecrow.

Durrow-Scarecrow-2017-1080x675

The Wonderful World of Scarecrows (Fourth Edition)

e572006445f3537ea870af8a28fb3813.jpg

Now that it’s fall, it’s the season for scarecrows. Though I’m not sure if any of these can actually scare crows away from your garden vegetables or crops. Or at least once the birds pick at it and realize it’s just a mere figure of straw and old clothes that doesn’t do much of anything. Yet, people still make them anyway for their fall décor. There are even contests. Most of these consists of a mannequin dressed in old clothes and stuffed with straw. Yet, you’ll find a few made of metal and other materials. Some don’t even have clothes on at all. Of course, some people decide to get creative with these guys. So some of them can be well beyond the farmer image we’re used to. So for your reading pleasure, I give you another assortment of delightful scarecrows for the fall.

5. Have room for an old crow?

39. This scarecrow’s sawing logs.

b3fde48f33fc6dc1033573f53881e42d

And he’s using am manual saw. Mostly because you wouldn’t use a chainsaw in a scarecrow display.

40. Even a fall bride should have a sensational gown.

b8ba038a56ca5c344e7afd921ede7725

Wonder if that’s an old wedding dress. Wouldn’t be surprise. But her head is a pumpkin.

41. Hope you enjoy this scarecrow clown.

b16ddb75e7928a288b7e53ce723b9e8a

bba7fc5eb2e07cbc5ed33277adb69f89

Well, the seaside seems hardly picturesque. But the bride is exquisitely stunning.

44. Strange to see promgoers during the daytime.

The three are under an umbrella. Wonder if those are actually prom dresses.

45. This scarecrow is all plastic.

dc350bd31ee994f87dd6fa0b977c5894

53. Looks like he’s struck out with the baseball in his mouth.

This is from Disneyland in California, by the way. And yes, he plays for the Scarecrows.

54. This scarecrow has gone to the next hole.

f959ad946d7e7fe8aae46a4d6708c68b

Not sure how he’s doing. But at least he’s not golfing at a Trump property.

55. Apparently, the news seems to be on the Dark Side.

fd1606ad16a637bbf84819536626b9b6

Had to put a Darth Vade scarecrow at some point. The cape is made out of a trash bag, by the way.

56. With him, there are always springs attached.

Since he mainly consists of a mattress frame. I’m sure he’ll scare the crows in the patch.

The Wonderful World of Scarecrows (Third Edition)

002

Though fall may be upon us, it still seems too early for Halloween mostly because it’s September. Yet, you might not be able to tell by how the stores see it since it’s a rather profitable holiday. However, there are some decorations you can put in your home or garden right now since they’re generally for fall. One of these are scarecrows. Sure they may not be great for discouraging birds from getting into field crops or garden veggies. Nor do they often seem scary. But if you have straw and some old clothes lying around, you might be able to make one. And you don’t have to be a farmer or gardener either. After all, there are plenty of scarecrow festivals and contests, especially in Great Britain. Though a lot of the British ones usually take place during the spring and summer. But there’s a fall scarecrow festival in the Canadian Nova Scotia involving “pumpkin people” or scarecrows with pumpkin heads. You might also find scarecrow villages such as Nagoro, Japan that consists of 350 of them in a town of 35 people. Or at Joe’s Scarecrow Village in Cape Breton, Canada that’s mainly seen as a roadside attraction. Nevertheless, for your reading pleasure, I give you another assortment of scarecrows to enjoy.

  1. Apparently, we’ve just experienced a strong gust of wind.

Okay, maybe not since they’re made holding a pole. But they just seem totally blown away.

2. Never thought I’d see a crow in flannels.

Though the crow doesn’t seem right in the head. Still, it’s pretty clever.

3. Sometimes a simple dress is all you need.

This one doesn’t seem to take a lot of effort to make. Just a wooden frame, gloves, a dress, and a potted plant.

4. How about sit back and smell the flowers?

She may be sitting in the shade. But even a gardener needs a break now and then.

5. You’d have to wonder why these old crows keep up their spirits.

I mean one’s riding a wheelbarrow because they had their car repossessed. Don’t believe me? It says so on the sign.

6. If you want to stand out, it pays to dress in pink.

She even has a straw hat and straw braids with pink bows. So lovely.

7. Looks like someone’s afraid of heights.

Well, it’s not going to help looking down. Also, you can easily jump off if you want to.

8. Perhaps you might want to ride a bike in the countryside.

Because there’s nothing like the wind against your back in the fresh country air. Though I’d wear a helmet for safety’s sake.

9. “Go ahead, nip at me all you want.”

For some reason, the crows don’t seem to mind him too much. Then again, his head is a literal pumpkin.

10. This old man is all potted from head to toe.

Seems kind of spiffy with his bow tie and buttons. Yet, has some grass coming out of his head.

11. Surely, you can’t find a more noble knight like this.

Yes, he has a foam sword and can’t fight. But he at least got a ribbon.

12. All this hippie scarecrow wants is peace, man.

Here he sits with his guitar in hand. However, please don’t give him a joint since he’s flammable.

13. You can always keep fit on an exercise bike.

Though it took me awhile to notice what it was. Guess it’s a simpler model.

14. Here comes a milkmaid with her pails.

Sure we don’t have milkmaids anymore. But she doesn’t seem to mind the extra weight on her shoulders.

15. You can tell this bishop’s in a thoughtful mood.

Though he is an Anglican bishop. Yet, you have to admire his fancy attire.

16. The choice is yours: scarecrow or puppet?

Okay, that’s actually pretty scary. But what’s scarier is that 63 million Americans were willing to vote for him.

17. “I ate his stuffing with a fine Chianti and some fava beans.”

Yes, that’s Hannibal Lecter from Silence of the Lambs. Sure he’s supposed to be scary, but he kind of has a rather magnetic personality.

18. Ali Baba is always up for adventure.

Though don’t mind what’s in the basket. Really, it’s kind of horrifying.

19. Introducing from Jamaica Usain Bolt.

So he’s actually made out of bolts. Okay, that’s actually very clever.

20. All hail the divine fidget spinner.

Now that has to be one large fidget spinner. Not sure how you can fit that in your pocket.

21. Shaun the Sheep hangs out with the farmer.

Shaun the Sheep is a claymation cartoon in Britain. It’s mostly slapstick but it’s cute.

22. Beware of the dark figure on a black horse.

Yes, it looks like one of those ring wraiths from Lord of the Rings. But you have to admire how it’s made out of trash bags.

23. Don’t tell me the Three Wisemen have shown up.

Okay, it’s kind of early for that. I mean it’s September and Christmas won’t be until December.

24. Wonder what these cowboys are watching.

Sure they may not have much straw in them. But they seem to be avid fans at whatever they’re watching. Like how they use normal street clothes.

25. You can’t find anything lovelier than an umbrella dress.

So she may be a doll. But at least you have to love her purple umbrella skirt with flowers. So pretty.

26. Don’t look now, but I see some minions on the roof.

Guess this is from Despicable Me 2. As far as the purple minion is concerned.

27. I’m sure you can’t resist this all-American girl.

I’m sure she’s perfect for any Rhinestone Cowboy. And she’s even wearing American flag tights.

28. Seems like this scarecrow painter is quite the artist.

Seems like the guy could paint better than most people. Then again, some repressed art major probably made him and his work.

29. The Caped Crusader seems very stuffed for some reason.

Okay, so whoever made this didn’t get Batman’s chest right. However, it’s very difficult to make a chiseled chest from straw.

30. How about a nice bottle of wine with this country gentleman?

My. he appears spiffy. Even has a sunflower on his lapel.

31. Behold, the dreaded squid king.

Not sure why this exist. But I think it more likely draws crows in than scares them away.

32. This bearded scarecrow knows how to keep it cool.

Cause if you’re all full of straw, there’s not much to stuff about. Also, you have to admire the sunglasses and beard.

33. Apparently, this hive’s all out of honey.

Actually this hive is made out of straw. But don’t worry, there aren’t any bees around this beekeeper to sting you.

34. Bet you’d never come across this angel in a tree.

On one hand, she kind of looks a bit creepy with those eyes. On the other hand, you have to like her tinsel and pigtails.

35. You’d swear it was the 1960s for these ladies.

Okay, so it’s not the Vietnam era. But you have to love their hats and tie-dye dresses.

36. Wallace and Gromit are always a delight on any afternoon.

Even has Sean the Sheep. Like how they have a table with cheese and Gromit reading a magazine.

37. You’d almost think these two merely boarded together.

After all, they’re both made from wooden ironing boards. But they certainly make a lovely couple.

38. Bet you’d never thought these scarecrows could make it in time.

Even has a dalek alongside him. Though to be fair, this was from 2006. And we know the new Doctor has gotten blonde and more ladylike since then.

39. This Humpty Dumpty scarecrow is up on a brick wall.

Though I wouldn’t push him because you can’t put him back together again. Seriously, you can’t.

40. This guitarist is all made of straw.

This one is from Taiwan. And yes, even if its guitar is made from hay.

41. Guess Dracula really can go out on a sunny day.

Though I do admit, this does make a great Halloween decoration. Wouldn’t mind seeing this on someone’s lawn.

42. Here we come to a knight with his sword and shield.

Well, he certainly looks like you can find him in a castle. Though medieval knights were anything but noble.

43. Of course, nobody can resist scarecrows of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.

Kind of disappointing that this Snow White’s singing may not get woodland creatures to clean your home. But these are adorable.

44. A Scottish scarecrow always looks dashing in a kilt.

Though he’s wearing pants under it. Mostly because he’s stuffed with straw.

45. I’m sure you might admire this ravishing beauty queen.

She’s from a scarecrow festival in France. Yet, I love how her dress is decked with butterflies.

46. You’d have to admire this Indian chief’s rainbow headdress.

Well, at least the warbonnet being used on an Indian. Though to be fair, this is from a festival in France. Still, love it.

47. If you love Rococo, this Marie Antoinette scarecrow will suit your fancy.

Her hair is made from styrofoam balls. Her skirt is made from an umbrella and table cloth.

48. Seems like we have a Loch Ness monster along the hedges.

Unlike the real Loch Ness monster, you know this one definitely exists. Sure it’s not scary, but it’s great.

49. Take some time to visit some pickle ladies.

This is from a festival in Mississippi. And yes, it’s for a pickle factory.

50. Need a haircut? These salon ladies got you covered.

Not sure what to make about the pink covers. But it’s quite an inventive display.

51. This cleaning lady will make your house spotless.

Or she could just be a British housewife with an apron and a babushka. Though she does have a head made from a volleyball.

52. Seems like this cowboy would rather hang out near his shed.

Or is it his house. Either way, he seems to take it easy for some reason.

53. It takes a certain kind of woman to pull off a polka dot dress.

Well, a polka dot pink dress anyway. Still, you have to love her hair.

54. Seems like someone is in a real emergency situation.

It’s a rescue helicopter that lifts injured people to a hospital. And yes, the helicopter itself is made from straw.

55. Kids, sleep tight if you want Flossina the Tooth Fairy to leave something for you.

Didn’t know the tooth fairy even had a name. Still, this is quite clever.

56. Apparently, they’re about to start the operation.

Though the doctors seem like they’re carrying on. Then again, they’re smiling because they have plastic pumpkin heads.

57. There’s nothing more holy for your garden than a St. Francis scarecrow.

He’s even surrounded by animals. Got some critters on his arms. Wonder if he gets these creatures to clean his house.

58. Nothing beats a scarecrow lightsaber duel in your front lawn.

This part of a scarecrow display on some Star Wars fan’s lawn. And yes, that’s a straw Death Star.

59. Bet you’ve never seen this cowboy jumping a fence.

Almost what you see in the western movies. And yes, even the horse is straw.

60. This Imperial Stormtrooper will shoot the stuffing out of you.

Okay, I’m just kidding since Stormtroopers don’t hit anything. Yet, you have to like his cardboard helmet.

61. These brooms could almost sweep you of your feet.

They also have hangers for arms and shoulders. Still, they look so happy together.

62. How about seeing Zorro in your flower garden?

Not exactly Antonio Banderas, but a pretty good rendition. The horse is covered with trash bags by the way.

63. Hope this scientist can get to the bottom of this.

Seems like he has 3 high tech microscopes on the table. Wonder what his findings are about hay fever.

64. And now, we got a straw man on the trampoline.

He’s even wearing a jumpsuit. Though trampolining isn’t what I’d call a sport.

65. Here we come to a scarecrow from the 18th century.

Even has crows near its straw. Wonder if there’s a scarecrow nearby of the Headless Horseman.

66. Bet you didn’t expect this trusty pirate.

Yes, that’s a pirate. I know it seems hard to see. But look closer and you’ll get what I mean.

67. “Help me, Obi Wan Kenobi, you’re my only hope.”

R2-D2 is a trash can in this one. And even Princess Leia’s sticky bun hair is made from straw.

68. Chances are you’ve never seen a scarecrow go through a ring of fire.

Okay, that’s not a real ring of fire obviously. But it’s a killer daredevil stunt.

69. Sometimes a grenadier at your door is all you need.

Though the head on a pike shows that he’s not fooling around. Yet, he stands still at the door always keeping watch.

70. Here we find Fred Flintstone and Barney Rubble joy riding on the town.

Of course, they have to put their feet to the car to move. I know Stone Age technology is a bitch.

71. Hope you get some tasty buns from these bakers.

Sure they may not be tasty on the barrel or tray. But you can give them all hay for it.

72. Apparently, stripper scarecrows also exist.

She’s even offering pole dancing classes. Like anyone would want to take that. Well, unless they’re needing the money.

73. Seems like Queen Victoria isn’t amused.

Here we have the Queen in full mourning attire after Prince Albert died of typhus. She’d dress like that from 1861 to her death in 1901.

74. Why take this Joker so seriously?

Because the Joker is totally nuts and is a walking hazard on Gotham. Also, he’s a total and raging psychopath Batman often fights with.

75. Someone has their head in the sand.

Guess this is what the Republican Party has become these days. That or this guy really wants to get rid of that mole.

76. You’d swear this scarecrow astronaut is out of this world.

Though you wouldn’t be wearing a suit like that while in space. Also, astronauts wear diapers under them.

77. “I call him mini Santa.”

It’s supposed to be Santa on vacation. Not sure why he has the mini Santa with him.

78. This bookworm has quite the literary taste.

Well, I have to admit, books are great. After all, I would know.

She has pink hair and a strapless dress. And I don’t think she’s wearing shoes either.

80. Rejoice for he has ascended into hayven.

Here we have Jesus risen up to heaven. May not scare or convert crows. But it’s sure a rather sacred piece made from straw.

The Wonderful World of Scarecrows (Second Edition)

SONY DSC

As September rolls in, fall will soon be in the air. And when it comes to fall decorations, there’s almost nothing to beat than the scarecrow. Two years ago, I did a scarecrow post which got really popular around this time of year so I decided to do another one. Still, contrary to the name, most scarecrows aren’t really that scary. Besides, using a scarecrow to ward off crows isn’t going to help rid them from your garden. I mean crows are very smart birds and probably know that the figure in your plot is just a guy full of straw. But not always. So they probably won’t be scared of it. Nevertheless, people love them so much that there are even contests for them at fall festivals and even one post can’t show the amount of creativity you might see in these things. Many of these have straw but they don’t always have to. And a lot of them are dressed in old clothes. So for your reading pleasure, I give you another glimpse into the wonderful world of scarecrows.

  1. Look, it’s none other than Gandalf the Straw-Haired.
The wizard beard is a stroke of genius. Also like the flower eyes and carrot nose. But you wonder why they don't have scarecrows like that in the Shire.

4. Guess somebody is ready for a wheelbarrow ride.

But the guy gets the ride while the woman has to push him around. Love the flower hat though.

5. Apparently, there are even NRA scarecrows out there.

And here is one standing with his gun and a chain of bullets. However, instead of scaring crows, his function is to scare potential terrorists, home invaders, and undocumented immigrants.

And here is one standing with his gun and a chain of bullets. However, instead of scaring crows, his function is to scare potential intruders and minorities.

6. It’s widely noted that they call her the Iron Lady since she comes off a little stiff.

Well, she's made with an ironing board. But yes, she seems a bit flat and stiff.

7. Just going out for a morning stroll with the baby, nothing special.

Seems like whoever made this has kids who are no longer toddlers. Well, at least they used it for something like this.

Seems like whoever made this has kids who are no longer toddlers. Well, at least they used it for something like this. Very clever.

8. Nothing to see here, just an old man tending his garden.

For a second, I almost thought it was a real guy. Until I saw the pumpkin head and the stuffed arms. Like the beard.

9. What’s this? Jack Skellington and Sally from Nightmare Before Christmas?

Yes, that's it. However, do these two seem like they're getting married? Because Sally is dressed in a nice white dress.

Yes, that’s it. However, do these two seem like they’re getting married? Because Sally is dressed in a nice white dress.

10. This veterinarian always tries to be good to animals.

However, that dog is kind of freaky looking to me. So is the vet's pumpkin head.

11. Guess someone has shown up with a sun flowery face.

Well, a sunflower head, anyway. Still, seems to make everything seem sunny even in patched overalls.

12. Seems like Gulliver shouldn’t have been sleeping.

This is from Gulliver's Travels where the Lilliputains tie him off on the beach and see him as a giant.

13. Seems like somebody has been sleeping on the job.

He should be out trying to scare crows off. But he's just taking a snooze. Lazy bum.

He should be out trying to scare crows off. But he’s just taking a snooze. Lazy bum.

14. Now this is a real corn maiden here.

Since she has a dress made from corn stalks as well as decked in full fall regalia. Kind of wish she was in an outdoor setting though.

15. This lady seems to have a head full of grains.

Well, her head consists of wheat. Yet, she's almost entirely made from straw. Guess she sometimes makes it hay.

16. Guess this woman seems to be waiting for the bus or something.

She's just sitting on the bench. Too bad she has straw in her boots. Then again, she's a scarecrow.

17. These two scarecrows surely adore their little pumpkin.

Too bad it doesn't have a jack o'lantern face yet. Guess it's too young to get one.

18. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you Princess Ladybug.

Well, she's wearing a ladybug dress. But that was what her name was on Pinterest so I'm going with that.

19. Looks like we’ve found ourselves in Tin Can Alley.

Seems like we come across a tin can lady and her metal dog. Not scary, but adorable for any Tin Man to love.

20. Seems like this old rusty truck needs some fixing.

Well, that's one way you can reuse an old busted truck. Like the scarecrow pumpkin mechanics the best though.

21. This scarecrow lady has to look her best when she’s out on the town.

She even has her straw lapdog in a shirt that she has around her arm. Like the purple purse and turquoise scarf.

22. To scare the crows away, this guy resorts to cartwheels.

Then again, it might for some of the crows. But this is a really creative, especially with having the scarecrow being upside down.

23. Heard about Angry Birds? How about Angry Bales?

Well, they're Angry Birds as hay bales. Basically consists of spray-paint and straw. Fans will love it.

27. This little dog seems to come out right from the haystack.

Sure it looks like a normal pile of hay until you see the dog's face. But sometimes you don't know where the straw dog begins and the bale ends.

28. This scarecrow appears to be a bit potted lately.

After all, he's made from a lot of flower pots that were probably sold at discount prices. Like the hay in the hands and head.

29. There’s nothing more relaxing to this garden lady than picking some flowers.

Sure her head is a flower pot and she wears a flower hat. But you have to admire how her bright green gloves would stand out. Also, that's not an outfit you wear for gardening.

30. Wonder what that scarecrow is doing in his long underwear or pajamas.

36. This redhead pumpkin head revels in her polka dot dress.

Not a fan of polka dots, but she does seem to rock the outfit without being tacky. Like the flowers in her hair, too.

37. How about you come in and stay for a spell?

I think this was for a town scarecrow contest. But I love how these ladies are wearing bright colored dresses. And how one of them sits on the hay bale.

38. Since Christ was born in a stable, it’s only fair we have a scarecrow nativity scene.

45. Supercrow his here to save the day from grasshopper infestation!

Like how he's hanging. But the fact this guy could flatten entire cities in his encounters with fellow Kryptonians should have the crows proceed with caution.

Yes, these are road workers. But the sign should clearly say, "Give me a break. Break me off a piece of that Kit Kat Bar." The slogan's wrong.

60. Harry Potter tends to make an entrance on his Firebolt.

However, the hair doesn't exactly look right on this. Because Harry has black hair, not straw colored. But seems like whoever made this didn't have the time.

77. Guess you wouldn’t want to go to this scarecrow for marriage advice.

Then again, he only beheaded two of his wives. But Henry VIII also put the ax to a lot of his friends and advisers who either refused to go along with what he wanted (like Thomas More) or screwed over big time (like Thomas Cromwell).

The Wonderful World of Scarecrows

93870-004-5ab35ff6

Soon autumn will be upon us and so would Halloween. Fall is known as the harvest season and one of the most iconic images of harvest is the scarecrow, which is meant to scare birds like crows or sparrows from eating the crops. Yet, I’m sure that the critters would be frightened but a human effigy filled with straw, not. Yet they are seen as cultural icons in literature and are portrayed with different personalities. The Scarecrow in The Wizard of Oz is said to have no brain (or so what he thinks) and does great choreography due to the talents of Ray Bolger. In the Kojiki from 712, the Japanese Kuebiko may no be able to walk but knows everything about the world as well as worshiped as a god of agriculture, wisdom, and scholarship, which is pretty ironic for one to sing, “If I Only Had a Brain.” Then Nathaniel Hawthorne’s Feathertop is in league with the devil and the Scarecrow is seen as a villainous character in the DC universe. Still, there are also a lot of scarecrow festivals which have people making their own straw garden figures such as in the UK since the 1990s, where it is also a significant figure in culture (especially in a nation of gardening fanatics). In this post we cover a lot of people’s fall creations of these loveable straw stuffed icons which I shall list accordingly.

1. “The hills are alive with the sound of scarecrows.”

I'm sorry but Fraulein Maria hailed from Austria not Thornhill. Still, I like how they have

I’m sorry but Fraulein Maria hailed from Austria not Thornhill. Still, I like how they have “Problem, Maria?” on her chest.

2. Hey, I didn’t know I could use one of those to water my plants.

Of course, there's no magic charm to make it animated. Yet, I think this is quite clever.

3. Well, as Bob Dylan said, “The answer my friends is blowing in the wind. The answer is blowing in the wind.”

So this is either a tribute to Bob Dylan's

So this is either a tribute to Bob Dylan’s “Blowin’ in the Wind,” or to Gene Kelly’s “Singin’ in the Rain.” I’ll probably go with the former because I don’t remember Gene Kelly having to cling to a lampost in that movie.

4. Oh, look it’s the Swan Princess.

Then again, this seems like a goose bride than a swan princess. Still, I do love that white dress with the feathers on it. Wonder if its creator ever wore it in her own wedding assuming it's a she.

5. Of course, what would this post be without a scarecrow of Lady Gaga?

Still, I can't help but be disappointed in this scarecrow. I mean given Lady Gaga's reputation for wearing outlandish outfits, her dress is pretty tame. Perhaps her dressing up as a straw princess or a crow would've been more appropriate.

6. As Forrest Grump said, “Life is like a box of eyeballs, you never know what you’re gonna get.”

Of course, for those who don't know anything about Forrest Grump, it's a lot like Forrest Gump but with zombies. Still, stupid is as stupid does.

7. If you’re into cutesy things from Japan, then you’d certainly love this Hello Kitty scarecrow.

Still, I have to explain that it's creator said that Hello Kitty isn't actually a cat. Also, this isn't really a Hello Kitty scarecrow. Yet, I like the bamboo heart.

8. Now I didn’t know that there were scarecrows into reggae music.

Still, I'm not sure if newspaper makes convincing dreadlocks. Yet, I have to admire the creator's intent on making a scarecrow that's more eco-friendly.

9. Hey, it’s Scarecrow Gru and his pumpkin minions from Despicable Me.

The minions from Despicable Me is a popular scarecrow subject at festivals since they're easy to make. Still, I bet the guy who did this took great advantage of early pumpkin sales and paint.

10. “It’s fun to scare at the Y. M. C. A.”

How did they manage to get pumpkin carvings that resembled sport and have them be so smooth like that, I have no idea. This especially goes to the football head.

11. Hey, I didn’t know they had scarecrow versions of the Munsters.

Seems like a recreation of the time when Herman was talking about proposing to Lily with Grandpa. Then again, it's not that the Munsters see themselves as anything other than being the average American family.

12. “Here comes the sun, and I say, it’s all right.”

Now this scarecrow may seem a little creepy, but I think its folksy disposition makes it a much better spokesman for Jimmy Dean sausage than the Sun they have now.

13. It’s Halloween with Charlie Brown and Snoopy.

Well, unlike what you see in the comics, this Charlie Brown scarecrow display seems like a winner as I see from the ribbon.

14. I’ve found Scarecrow Waldo!

Of course, a scarecrow of Waldo isn't really that hard to spot. Still, it's pretty funny.

15. Of course, scarecrows aren’t just a thing in the west you know.

I mean Japan has worshiped one as a god for years. Still, I'm sure you couldn't tell this family was Asian if you didn't see what the dad was wearing.

16. Ladies and gentleman, may introduce to you the Tinman’s brother, Watering Can Man.

Of course, unlike his famous brother from The Wizard of Oz, Watering Can Man works in the landscaping business as shown by his gardening implements.

17. Well, wedding bales are surely ringing in this time of year.

Notice that I said,

Notice that I said, “wedding bales” instead of “wedding bells.” Still, these two really seem to be made for each other. Then again, they literally are.

18. My, my, that’s one purdy scare cow you have there, sir.

Seriously, if it weren't for the straw sticking out, I'd sure almost mistake that cow as the real thing or a large stuffed animal.

Seriously, if it weren’t for the straw sticking out, I’d sure almost mistake that cow as the real thing or a large stuffed animal.

19. Now here’s a nice tribute for Gone with the Wind with a Scarlett O’Hara scarecrow.

Actually, that's Scarlett O'Hara from the Gone with the Wind spoof on The Carol Burnett Show. Of course, she just saw that curtain dress in the window and just had to have it.

20. Never in my life have I seen a firefighter so flammable as this one.

Of course, this scarecrow was probably made by a local fire department. Yet, I'm not sure if being stuffed with straw makes a good firefighter.

21. Hey, look, it’s the Cheese String Man.

Of course, this might be at tribute to WuShock, the mascot from Wichita State, but I hope not. Still, Cheese String Man is much better as a scarecrow.

22. Ladies and gentlemen, the Beatles.

You know that I wasn't going to leave out the Beatles, did you? I always seem to have the Beatles in Sand Sculptures in Peep Dioramas for some reason.

23. Of course, I’m sure that a Hipster Scarecrow can do the job of scaring critters.

I'm sure nobody wants to hear what this scarecrow has on his or her ipod. I mean crows just can't stand the music from Counting Crows, get it?

24. So would you want some milk with that?

I'm sure that scarecrow's mother is worried about him possibly breaking his neck when he's climbing buildings like this. Still, pretty clever.

25. Of course, no scarecrow post would be complete without a tribute to Grant Wood’s American Gothic.

Now I'm sure Depression era farmers would have much better things to do than just make scarecrows for some contest like surviving the Dust Bowl. Still, American Gothic is a very iconic American painting.

26. Now I can’t believe crows could ever do this to each other.

Still, despite unfortunate implications, I'm sure this scarecrow display may actually scare crows. I mean to them, it's suggestive of cannibalism.

Still, despite unfortunate implications, I’m sure this scarecrow display may actually scare crows. I mean to them, it’s suggestive of cannibalism.

27. Even scarecrows need self-help books about scaring crows now and then.

I mean no scarecrow is born with the innate ability to scare crows. Crow scaring is an art that needs to be learned.

28. Of course, you can’t have a scarecrow contest without one of Edward Scissorhands.

Sure he may have scissors as hands, but Edward isn't that scary once you get to know him. In fact, he's quite nice really but that doesn't mean you should shake hands with him.

29. Of course, you can’t have a scarecrow post without posting a display from The Wizard of Oz.

Because one of the main characters we remember from that movie is a scarecrow. Get it? Still, looks pretty creepy.

I wouldn't disturb him if I were you. I mean you don't want him to force choke you? Oh, wait he does that to guys who fail him.

33. Since when do crows actually wear clothes?

Sure it's cute and sharp dressed. However, I hopes it's not one of the racist crow caricatures from Dumbo. You don't want any unfortunate implications there.

34. Hey, I’ve never seen an invisible scarecrow before.

I'm sure the crows would be more frightened by an invisible scarecrow than a visible one. Still, it's pretty clever if I do say so myself.

35. Of course, you might not want to go anywhere near this scarecrow crime scene or contamination site.

“I’m afraid this one died from a wound that resulted in the loss of an excessive amount of straw. I say it was the neighborhood dog.”

36. Hey, it’s nice that these two scarecrow ladies seem nice enough to offer refreshments.

Now I'm sure these two are from a movie I've seen or something but I'm not sure where from. Still, they seem pretty creepy if you ask me. I mean they seem to hate their waitress jobs so much that they're willing to kill a few unsatisfied customers for kicks.

Wow, that picture really looks just like him which is more than I can say about anything I could do.

Wow, that picture really looks just like him which is more than I can say about anything I could do. Seriously, he has a lot of talent.

38. Seems like a great graveyard wedding going on here.

I'm sure this ghost or corpse bride will be very happy with her new accountant ghost for all eternity. Of course, he doesn't seem to be that scary.

39. Seems that this scarecrow is doing some surveying work during this time.

I hope this scarecrow isn't from the gas companies. I seriously hope he's not. Let's just say I have absolutely no confidence that fracking is safe and leave it at that.

40. “Hello, hello, hello, what have we got here?”

In the world of British murder mysteries, this scene may look like a suicide judging by the gas can and shoes. However, it's actually murder though I'm not sure who did it.

41. Wow, I didn’t know they had scarecrow fairies out there.

She does have a very pretty dress and wings as well as seems like something designed by a 10 year old girl. Still, I can't hate this.

42. Hey, it’s Catwoman!

Of course, while Catwoman would've had an easier life if she'd just marry Batman, she seems to like stealing things for some reason. Still, reminds me of the Catwoman from the 1960s show more than anything.

43. Looks like this scarecrow knows what to do with that old broken down tractor.

Of course, this is how people go on fall hayrides in Venice, Italy. Still, I'm not sure about the whole water hayride bit.

44. Look, it’s Linus in the pumpkin patch waiting for the Great Pumpkin.

Of course, we all should know that Linus tends to waste his Halloween waiting for the Great Pumpkin every year. Let's face it, the Great Pumpkin never comes.

45. Just a bunch of camping scarecrows roasting marshmallows by the fire.

Seems that they seem to like camping despite that a campfire would basically consume them in flames. Still, who doesn't love smores?

47. For you Olympic lovers out there, here’s a scarecrow of Michael Phelps to tell you he’s the greatest swimmer around.

Of course, Michael Phelps didn't win all those gold medals from nothing. Still, who cares whether he was caught smoking pot from a bong?

48. Well, I didn’t know that scarecrows did road construction.

Wait a minute, road season is during the summer while scarecrows are associated with fall. I'm so confused.

Wait a minute, road season is during the summer while scarecrows are associated with fall. I’m so confused. Then again, he may not be from PennDOT since he seems to be coming from a manhole.

49. Can’t do a post for scarecrows without including Wallace and Gromit.

Of course, Wallace is one of the few guys who can don a sweater vest and not have anyone think him lame. Still, without his trusty dog Gromit bailing him out, he'd be sunk.

50. This scarecrow seems to be from the land of Mexico.

Despite the Mexican stereotypes, this is actually a good Mexican scarecrow, especially with the skull mask from The Day of the Dead. Still, are those cowboy boots?

51. Hey, keep those pumpkin buns in your pants won’t you?

Sometimes scarecrows can have the poorest manners comparable to fratboys. Still, he should think of the children.

52. Look, kiddies, here’s Strawbob Squarepants.

The reason he's called Strawbob is because he's made out of straw not sponge. Of course, I don't need to tell you where this takes off from.

53. Of course, all scarecrow race car drivers need a pit stop now and then.

Still, we should probably give this guy some privacy as he does his duty.

54. Hey, what the hell is this supposed to be? An escaped inmate from the asylum?

Actually, this would make a good scarecrow of Lady Gaga. Still, this will certainly scare crows if you know what I mean.

55. Now that scarecrow lady seems to have had too much plastic surgery.

Still, I can't help but wonder if this one was made for some theme park or something. It doesn't seem to be made from old clothes.

56. Since October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, here are some scarecrows in pink.

Sure it may seem childish or a little girl's dream but it's for a good cause nonetheless. And breast cancer is a very nasty disease that does kill people.

57. Who’s my little scarecrow? You are, you are.

Now that is one creepy little scarecrow. Imagine what he'll become when he gets older. Also, what's that in his bowl?

Still, I wonder how the flowers seem to be so lifelike yet not appear to die. Oh, I get it they're fake.

59. Of course, scarecrows do have their share of potheads.

I mean scarecrows that have pots for heads, get it? Still, this one does seem to sport a hair style that seems to remind me of someone off The Simpsons.

60. Of course, sometimes you have to make a scarecrow with all you got, even stuff from a junkyard.

Of course, he doesn't really look that bad save being a bit rusty. Also, the name

Of course, he doesn’t really look that bad save being a bit rusty. Also, the name “Rusty” kind of suits him.

61. Just a lovely afternoon with the Tinman, his wife, and their dog.

Yes, they have flowers on their heads. Yes, that's a dog made out of cans. And yes, Mrs. Tinman's breasts are cone shaped. Still, it's just a scarecrow display, man.

62. Man, that scarecrow must be very strong to lift weights like that.

Seems pretty strong despite his thin arms. Then again, those bar bells seemed to be made of plastic.

63. Bring in the harvest season with the spirit of fall.

Of course, I wonder how she managed to make a skirt out of those leaves. Yet, I love her sunflower laden hair.

65. Even scarecrows can be real knit wits if you know what I mean.

How does this scarecrow manage to make colorful outfits without moving its arms I have no idea. Still, very pretty.

66. Ladies and gentlemen, Counting Crows.

Forgot that Counting Crows didn't consist of actual crows. My mistake. Probably just a cover group.

Of course, I kind of find the concept with this one behind a camcorder rather creepy if you ask me.

68. Sometimes scarecrows just like to dress up.

And I see this group of pumpkin headed straw stuffed people are very much styling.

69. Sometimes scarecrows are used to protect crops and sometimes they are made out of them.

This one won't be scaring crows as much as helping critters to an all you can eat buffet. Seriously, it's basically saying,

70. Scarecrow Mona Lisa seems to like sitting on a ledge.

Of course, she's sitting on a chair on a railing. Still, you have to include a Mona Lisa scarecrow in this post.

71. A scarecrow mother’s work is never done.

This is especially true if she's working a shift as a cashier at some grocery store which I think this one does.

72. Man, seems like scarecrow nuns really like to jam to music.

Of course, we all know that these scarecrow nuns are singing,

Of course, we all know that these scarecrow nuns are singing, “How Do You Solve a Problem Like Maria?” The priest is just trying to do the Robot but is really bad at it.

73. Sometimes scarecrows can catch certain moments you remember like the scene from Titanic.

Of course, we all know what happens to Jack after this. Still, how did this person have all that time on their hands to design this?

74. This scarecrow seems to really like the birds.

Still, she's a scarecrow which means she usually tries to scare crows. Still, I'm sure she delights in those paper birds.

77. Of course, if you want to scare dogs, you might want to go with this.

Yeah, since basically Cruella De Vil wants to make coats from domestic dog fur. Such acts are illegal and really won't make you any friends with the ASPCA or the Humane Society.

78. Seems like the wind so strong he’s trying not to get blown away.

Then again, straw is a fairly light material. Still, I think this scarecrow display is quite funny as he's hanging from a pole.

79. “Say aah! This won’t hurt a bit.”

Not sure if a dentist scarecrow is guaranteed to scare crows. But it'll sure scare some people who are afraid of dentists.

80. Of course, when it comes to scarecrows, it’s best that you go with a cat one.

Not sure if the Cat in the Hat is guaranteed to scare crows. But since it's the most famous Dr. Seuss character, I'll put it in this post.
