Welcome to Wisconsin, Americas Dairyland! Cheese shops aren’t always the only cheesy destinations in the state that feature giant mice roadside attractions! At a truck stop parking lot in Oakdale, Wisconsin, you can find another big rodent! This giant Western mouse wears bright blue jeans, a red shirt, a yellow bandana, brown cowboy boots, and a giant cowboy hat. He holds up a sign “Welcome to Wisconsin” sign, welcoming all passersby to the great cheese state of Wisconsin.
Normally, a giant mouse might be the last thing you would want to see hanging around at a gas station when you pull up to fill up your tank… but this cowboy mouse is A-Okay.
The silly mouse with cowboy hat is a friendly face when you need to take a pit stop for provisions…especially when rising gas prices abound!
Or should that be yippie ki-SQUEAK?!?!
