    Erik in this politically correct world you would call them petroleum based enabled people, because they are made of plastic which comes from fossil fuel oils. Please try and be a little more sensitive next time. Richard from the Amish community of Lebanon county.

    As ive e-mailed Erik about this, the Martyrs Mirrors that Erik talked about in his post a little while back were sold along with a few other rare books for 25,000. Not bad but i had thought those 2 Martyrs Mirrors would have sold for that alone, and more. Richard from the Amish community of Lebanon county.

    Giant Amish Man

    Have you seen the giant fiberglass Amish man in front of Hershey Farm in Strasburg? He originally stood in front of a diner, I believe in Adamstown. We had fun taking pictures with him. They told me his name but I can’t remember it.

    I know if i melt those 2 and pour them in my gas tank i could circle the world 2 times, and never be late for dinner. I’m not sure what i just said but it sounded good while it was in my head. Richard from the Amish community of Lebanon county.

    OMG!

    I wonder if the happy couple misses their family enough to wander off in the dark of night? Alas, I live too far away to help them.

    Tell them: “Put down the pitchfork and I might be your friend.”

    Loving the responses :) Lindsay, Ghostbusters was brilliant. There’s something in the eyes there…

    I want to like these guys but something is…off. Is she suffering from a bad case of indigestion or just trying to warn us…??

    I think the lesson is, never trust a pitchfork-wielding Amish farmer in a red shirt.

    Must be part of those “large” Amish families I always see people writing about.

    This is almost as disturbing as that burger king commercials, the ones with the “King” with that plastic face. Make it go away Erik, I’m not sure if i will ever be able to promote my blog again. Well that’s not going to happen, i bet i had you going for a min,lol. Richard from the Amish settlement of Lebanon county.

    Is the cage around them to protect them? I could see photo ops, people wanting to prop the kiddies up in the laps of the huge, friendly, smiling fiberglass Amish couple

    Comment on Anybody got a donut? (June 1st, 2011 at 21:40)

    Anybody got a donut?

    I’ve never been there, but it evokes images of that figure in Los Angeles and his giant iconic Donut. In Ontario we have giant Geese and slightly bigger than life size Elephants, oh and the money is big too.

    One thing is for sure, these Giant Order Amish would direct photography-taker’s attention from regular-sized Amish, and maybe even cause the teeny tiny OOs to sneak a picture too.

    roadside america

    Is this from Roadside America in Shartlesville? I’ve read about that place and would like to see some pictures, as well as know more about it. And how far is it from Lancaster County?

    I’d bet that this is one of those cases where the person that dreamed this up thought; “This will be great!” and the person they hired to create this “masterpiece” said; “I can do that & it will be really nice!”. Update: Nope, in both both cases.

    Loretta, I believe it is. The author of the photo had tagged this as Roadside America. I personally don’t know a lot about it, other than it looks to be in northern Berks County, which is the next county up from Lancaster.

    This wasn’t an official contest, but lot of good captions and funny comments here. Seems like most people are slightly disturbed by our Jumbo Amish friends, like I was.

    Forsythia I especially enjoyed your 2nd comment on ‘large’ Amish families. They just keep getting bigger it seems.
