Visit Canada, home of the giant skunk

SquirtIf you happen to be interested in small Canadian towns whose tourism marketing consists mainly of “fantastic and awe inspiring monuments,” then we have a Web site for you: BigThings.ca. The site features 274 such statues, including “Squirt” the skunk, who is the official mascot of Beiseker, Alberta. Beiseker, which has a pretty cool Flash Web site for a tiny town, draws visitors with the motto, “It makes scents to stop in Beiseker.”
