a very “corny” political statement

September 16th, 2008


Every year, Lebanon, Ohio farmer Bill Irons creates a design in his corn field.  This year, it’s a 12-acre maze with an election theme.

Irons creates his design the old-fashioned way.  He draws it out on graph paper, then enlarges it on 16 to 20 pages of graph paper that he tapes together and mounts on a board.

The corn field gets special attention, too.  It’s planted in two directions – like the intersections on a grid, he said.  The corn comes up extra thick that way.

When the corn starts growing, Irons gets out his tractor, and sometimes a hoe.  He grooms his creation the entire growing season.

Irons chooses not to use a GPS device that would guide him more easily through the cutting process. “I use my head and my hands,” he said.

    I think it’s cool he decided not to endorse either party, but let’s be real…OBAMA is the only intelligent choice. McCain can’t even raise his arms over his head, and Palin is clearly not qualified…
