“The giant turtle on the side of Century Avenue in Dunseith, North Dakota, was erected in 1982 to pay homage to the nearby Turtle Mountain State Park. The 18-foot-tall tortoise was built from 2,000 old wheel rims, and has been known to sport a festive Santa hat during the holidays.” Address: Junction of Highways 3, 5 and 281, Dunseith, North Dakota

Ok, seriously? These people are both crazy and amazing. I was informed that the most recent episode of the simpsons featured a tortoise on a velvet pillow. I googled to find a clip and came upon this piece of youtube insanity. There may not actually be a tortoise or turtle but I laughed hard enough I thought it deserved a post. Turtle, the simpsons, das experiment….
