Lady of the Lake.

Lady of the Lake

Field review by the editors.

Elberta, Alabama

Built by Foamhenge creator Mark Cline, the giant Lady appears to be using the Bayou La Launch as a bathtub. Only her knees and head are visible above the water.

Mark built the Lady in 2012 as one of his long series of April Fools jokes, and floated her in a pond at Barber Motorsports Park in Leeds, Alabama. But Mr. Barber -- who happens to be a millionaire -- liked the Lady so much that he kept her around for months, then paid to have her trucked south and permanently floated in his public marina on the Gulf Coast. And then he paid Mark to build Bamahenge -- a full-size replica of Stonehenge -- on the property as well.
