The orca spotted on highway 50 gave us a laugh. How could this be?

Is this a real orca? Or a photo of one? Drawing/painting of one? Is orca just a "nickname" for what this was? Or is there a pun involved?

Did you in fact see the orca yourself? or only hear about it from someone who did? Relevant?

Is it a real orca, in the meaning toothed whale belonging to the oceanic dolphin family? If so, is it alive? And was it physically present in a spatial, three-dimensional way on highway 50?

Were YOU physically on highway 50? Or were you watching it on TV? Reading about it? Was it a typo? TV-glitch?

By "gave us a laugh" do you mean "made us laugh"? or that it somehow laughed at you? If the former, was it by something it did? Something it said? something about it's appearance?

So it was not alive, nor had it been alive, nor was it a sculpture or any other kind of representation or imitation of an orca - yet it was physically present?

Was it the word "ORCA" you saw somewhere?

It was three dimentional. I suppose it was about the size of a baby orca. It was a type of toy, but be more specific as to what kind. It was plastic. I'm on my phone so I was unable to copy the questions. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Was there an obvious mistake in this orca-like thing? or in the picture? structure? or whatever surrounding it?
Relevant that it was on highway 50?
Relevant where exactly on highway 50 it was?
Was it in a place most far away from the oceans?
Relevant where the orca was there? was it an advertisement? a joke? was there nearby a place called Orca or similarly?

*************************SPOILER*************************

You have all the pieces. It was an inflatable pool toy in the middle of the highway. No water was nearby, so when we saw it, one of my friends wondered how it got there and started joking about implying a real orca was beached on the highway.

Sorry for the disappearence! I shall be on more frequently.
