And I thought Iowa was the Corny State …

But, apparently, curators with the Wisconsin Historical Society are cornier. They have a collection of vintage postcards titled, “Exaggerated Postcards, 1900-.” I assume that means they’re still working on the collection.

But who knew corn could break a wagon? Or be ridden like a horse? Or that it could take a whole train car to move one ear of corn?

You can see the whole collection online, so if you need a reason to procrastinate, say you’re researching faked photos and you can get away with this.
