Here is a question many of us face on a regular basis, would you rather keep your nose to grindstone or just jump off a bridge?
Each year creatively created scarecrows suddenly appear in Frenchtown. Every night they wander the streets and change places before dawn. Hundreds of people have investigated this strange manifestation but no one yet has been able to explain it.
