The giant ears of corn remind me of McBroom's Ear, one in a series of tall tales about a wondrous farm on a single acre. The soil of McBroom's farm was so rich one of his children dropped a nickel and it grew into quarter.

The giant ear of corn attracted a swarm of locusts so thick "you could swing a bucket once and fill it twice".

"Texas Jackalope card" thats a big jack rabbit - Jackalope's are mythical creatures that look like rabbits with antlers.

I was in Austin early this Spring, and bought a postcard with a giant armadillo. I'd post a picture, but I mailed it to a friend -- because it was funny and weird.

And jackalopes are usually rabbit sized.

I remember the Japanese being into miniaturisation. Are there any examples of, umm, corresponding postcardy inaggeration?

Clearly this is a propaganda placement by Big Bunny interests and other Jackalope deniers. Follow the money.

The corn brings this to mind.
