Take note American farmers, you are doing hay incorrectly. Why are you rolling it into those stupid bales? You could be doing something awesome, like making a t-rex!

In Japan’s Niigata Prefecture, there’s a festival at the end of every August called the Wara Art Festival. During the event, students, artists, and volunteers celebrate the end of the local rice harvest by creating these awesome and massive statues out of straw. Some of this year’s statues include: T-rex, triceratops, crab, praying mantis, and a rubber duckie.

Oh, how I wish this festival ended with a bonfire!
