A screenshot from the movie "A few good men" starrying Dustin Hoffman and Robert DeNiro, where they are manufacturing a false war against Albania and fabricate a soldier remaining behind the enemy lines, nicknamed "old shoe" - people start throwing their old shoes over trees and lamp posts as a tribute to the "hero".

Probably not the real answer, but it is really similar.

You read too much Xanth, like me. That's a shoe tree. Now stop making silly puns.

Actually, it is called The Shoe Tree. Apparently it got started because a couple after they got married through their shoes up there. And then their children, etc. Well, after awhile it became well known so people from all over started tossing them up there. A half dozen other trees can be found around the country.

That's not very wacky, interesting, strange or weird.

But I'll beat the system, that's a one of those corners of a castle, but they forgot to build the rest.

Sentry tower set away from a castle to warn the monarch of approaching enemies. (Like the one the Wart [Rhymes with art.] finds in the book The Sword and the Stone by [Can't remember initials... TH maybe?] White.)

Actually it, thought it doesn't look it, is very interesting. This is the for real castle of Count Vlad Dracula in Transylvania. Flocks of large bats live in the eeves even.

It is, of course, a float (Not like the drink.) for a company that is trying to rival Legos called Cylindros (It's main building is in California). It's a giant replica of one of their favorite new additions to the line of Zoo-Animals. (Not to be mistaken for the spider-monkey found in their Domestic-Animals line.)

It is titled, simply, Barrel Man. Some junk artist stuck it out on the side of the road. Not very interesting story... but it looks cool

Someones about to get stabbed with many spikes in a painful fashion...Oh, wait, that's just a metal figurine.

So, it's a waste of time and money. It's something Bill Gates hired a bunch of people to build up as a monument celebrating his backyard.

It's a guy with spikey hair looking up at a big metal thing standing on a pile of hay.

*shrug* I'm feeling literal.

Exclamation

As far as I can make out it is a place where wackos, nutcases and those of alternative hairstyles go... its kinda bizarre.

Here is the link to some info about it:

Another waste of time and money. All the coal miners have to walk sideways in the cave.
