The curious case of the running daikon radish

What would you do if you unearthed an oddly-shaped daikon radish that resembled someone swinging their arms and legs back and forth in a sprinting position? Would you place it in humorous situations and photograph it? Well that’s exactly what a farmer in Hyogo prefecture, who goes by the twitter handle @konsai_umemama, decided to do.
