The Weirdest Bowling Alley in the World

One day I was driving through Bend, Oregon when I came across this cupid arrow and garden of love

I was quickly distracted, however, by the rainbow and pot of gold behind it

I had to know what kind of farm this was.

A Farm Fun The!!!!!

There were signs about there being cattle on this farm, but I never saw any.

The farm was a little creepy at first. Like a stagecoach with no pioneers

wagon

and a fire truck with no firemen.

There was also a boat

but it had a lady with no hands and some bushes living in it.

The boat was next to the lighthouse

which was guarded by penguins with paddles

The farmhouse next to the barn was also a store

guarded by General Junk

They had so many amazing junk items in their front yard

and flower pot shoes and toilet bowl.

Unfortunately, I didn’t get to go inside because of their weird store hours.

So I poked around the side of the house

to look at its decorations

and noticed these signs.

I had to find the fainting goats and bowling ball garden.

I knew I was heading in the right direction when I saw a line of bowling balls

and a bowling ball tree!

Sure enough, there was the garden!

It was so nice. It even had a fountain made out of tractor tires for the flamingos to drink from

although most of them were laying on a tarp and seemed either sick or dead.

I lost interest in the flamingos, however, when I noticed the hot siamese marathon runners behind them

While I do have a weakness for hippies

I’m not really into guys who wear scarves

heads

or who are missing fingers

hands

I noticed they were about to go bowling though

So I found the bowling alley.

It was right in front of the cemetary

While I was looking at the graves, I noticed something in the woods behind the cemetary

I could tolerate the no hands or fingers thing, but the antlers on this scuba diver lady’s head was just plain freaky. I got the hell out of there. FAST!

Best day of bowling on Sumer Tour 2009 ever!
