Then, after nightfall, it turns into a heinous beast set on world domination. I can see it hovering around eating small children, puppies and the occasional goat. It uses that orange beacon on it’s head to draw the victims near, then strangles them with it’s tentacles cleverly hidden as ivy vines.
Either that, or it’s just a goofy lamp post….
