Shark Attack

Okay, this one requires some set-up: There's a house on the outskirts of Oxford, England. It seems the gentleman who owns it wanted to build some sort of deck, but had to get permission from a town commission/building committee (I may not have the terms right, but you get the point). Even though what he wanted to build was something he considered tasteful, it wasn't allowed by whatever regulations governed these things. Not to be deterred, the resourceful fellow studied all the rules and determined that there was absolutely nothing that prohibited him from placing a large shark through the roof! Here's the result. It's been there for years and has become quite the tourist attraction. I understand you can buy postcards of it. I took this photo as we drove by.

Well that's something that you don't see every day. :)
