Along a bikeway: Whimsy or what?

Maybe there's some significance to the presence of this plastic cherub by the side of the Highway 34 bikeway, and maybe not.

Riding west on the new bikeway alongside Highway 34 the other day, I saw this little plastic doll resting against the base of a Pacific Power pole and didn't think anything of it. Then I came to the power pole next in line.

And there saw this:

And a few turns of the pedals later, leaning against the next pole in line:

So, a plastic cherub with an ear of plastic corn and a rotten apple, followed by a figurine of indeterminate character and then a colorful unicorn -- it's got to mean something, right?

Or perhaps not. Maybe it's the merely result of somebody's idea of adding some whimsy to what otherwise is a rather uneventful ride. But I didn't get the joke. Or if there was some other message, I didn't get that either. (hh)
