The Baker Man statue in Shirley, Indiana is a friendly, plump man dressed in orange striped pants and a white chef’s hat. He stands with a raised hand, waving at locals and road trippers who come to sneak a peek.

His round figure has earned this Indiana roadside attraction the nickname, “Puffy the Baker,” but he was originally called “Mister Fifteen.”

Mister Fifteen used to stand on top of a sign at a Mister Fifteen drive-in’s location, so named because the burgers cost 15 cents. Back then, he held up a giant hamburger in his left hand (where’s the world’s largest catsup bottle when I need it?).

Mister Fifteen closed in the 1970s, and was renamed Burger Man. That too eventually closed and and at some point after this burger man/baker man/fifteen cent man moved to its current location (at a liquor depot) in Shirley.

And Shirley, it’s a sight to see.
