Cara and Big Tony have made it as far as Illinois on day 1 of their road trip (that's approx. 600 miles, they are the world's most insane drivers. Thank god I'm not in that car, someone would have been stabbed with knitting needles) I think they need to stop tomorrow and visit this scenic wonder:
Jolly Green Giant
Blue Earth, Minnesota
Putting even giant animals in their place, the Jolly Green Giant dwarfs all other North Dakota / Minnesota highway leviathans. At 55-feet tall, he stands head-and-husk above a rival 2D 2-dimensional green giant in nearby Le Sueur (The Official Birthplace of the Jolly Green Giant). Blue Earth is also the Birthplace of the Ice Cream Sandwich*, but with no fiberglass colossus to commemorate it, how are tourists supposed to know, Blue Earth???
* July 2006: This claim seems to be in dispute. Someone wrote and told us Blue Earth is actually Birthplace of the Eskimo Pie, but that claim is in dispute as well (Onawa, Iowa?).
