Tucson's Snake Bridge.

Giant Rattlesnake Bridge

There's a brand spanking new pedestrian/bicycle bridge across six lanes of traffic in downtown Tucson made to look like a giant diamondback rattlesnake. One end of the bridge has the snake's head, where users enter between the snake's fangs. The other end has a giant rattle sticking straight up in the air.

Tucson residents are (of course) divided over the snake. Some like it and think it's cool. Others hate it and think it makes downtown Tucson look like a miniature golf course. So what's so wrong with looking like a miniature golf course?
