A local authority in Japan established a huge statue of squid, spending about 250 thousand dollars. The statue is 13 meters long, 9 meters wide, and 4 meters tall. Most of the construction cost is from the extraordinary grant against COVID-19. Thus, some people say it's a waste of money. However, other people say it's an economic measure because the town's special product is squid. I think it's funny but inappropriate for the way of using taxpayer money.
