“40-foot-tall statue”

***UPDATE: Hobe Joe has gone missing***

Erected in 1989, the Hobo Joe in Buckeye, Arizona, is one of the only remaining statues that once fronted a now-defunct restaurant chain called Hobo Joe's. This 40-foot-tall statue is enjoying a second career as a memorial to one Marvin Ransdell at a meatpacking company in downtown Buckeye. When he was actively fronting restaurants, Hobo Joe was marketed as "World Traveler, Philosopher, and Connoisseur of Good Food.

This guy has seen better days and could use a little maintenance, but he's a friendly looking sort and we enjoyed stopping by for photos. There were some cows behind him keeping him company as he looks a little lonely at the end of the dusty road.

The statue was a little tucked away a and the roads were not clearly marked but it wasn't too much of a hassle to find it.
