I’d say it was funny, but then I think how many bombers we lost over Germany.
thinking strategically, it would have been smarter to use it as a last resort alternate target, meaning that if a bomber had to turn back from “real” targets for whatever reason (mechanical issues, loss of fighter cover), rather than carry the bombs back across the channel (we had a lot of bombs, trained aircrews and viable airframes were another matter) dump them on the dummy farm.
Never hurts to make the enemy THINK they are fooling you if you know better.
