Japanese town spends Covid funds on huge squid statue

 

The town of Noto sought to boost tourism in the area where squid is a delicacy

 

...more...

 

 

 

(What they don't say is that soon every town in Japan will have a giant squid statue, and while worship and acts of devotion will not be mandatory, they will be highly encouraged).

What?
RAILSQUID is evolving!


In all honesty, this does sound like the phrase "Give a man a fish/squid and you feed him for a day, teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime"; however in this case the proverbial guy only receives a fishing rod with neither knowledge of how to use it nor any efficient means of getting to the nearest body of water...

All glory to the Hypnosquid. May His divine tentacles of steel and copper spread across the lands and atop the baseboards of many a modeller, and bring prosperity to all.

He's already infiltrated the staff, pretty soon he'll set up a new rule on the forum, you're only allowed in if you own the squid train o.O

Your devotion is appreciated and will be remembered when the time comes.

It actually does seem like a pretty good investment.  There must be a sufficient number of squid otaku who will be drawn to the pilgrimage.
