Once (half) awake, of course, they realize that their sell by date may extend for more than the few seconds they were expecting. The alien creature in front of them is still and lifeless. Instead of a cry for Arnold or Danny they find they can take a second glance at the steel leviathan in front of them.
Plus, he won’t disappear in a flash, only to whip the skull out of their head a moment later. This is one static predator. Having said this, approaching this beast makes the more poetic among commuters want to start exclaiming Behold! A giant am I!
A junk yard is probably far too harsh a word for it. However, each morning the proprietors of Aladdin’s Cave in Lewisham, South East London, drag to the forefront a massive eight foot replica of one of our favorite scary movie beasts, the Predator. They are vague about the origins of the structure, but not so much about the price attached to it. Although they are more than willing to haggle, your starting gambit had better start at several thousand (British) pounds. Otherwise, leave it out!
If you are having problems with the birds in your garden, and you have the kind of spare cash that has three zeros at the end of the initial number, you may wish to consider this giant among scarecrows. Magnificent he certainly is, but this giant needs a home soon. Oxidization is beginning to happen and he may only be able to stay intact at this spot for another few thousand years or so. As there is no Battersea Predator’s Home willing to give him a kennel and a staple diet, this poor guy may rust himself (determinedly and without mercy) to the spot before long!
Some of you who read this and who live in the area may well remember a similar model was on sale in the same place in 2008. Perhaps a (slow but sure) invasion is underway.
