What lies beneath the leafy covering?


The missus finally finds out what is under the Jolly Green Giant's leafy onesy.

Answer: nothing.

Probably explains why Mrs. Giant ain't so jolly.

sornie- You have brought back a memory that would be a posting in itself! We were coming home from hunting in Wyoming, 2am were passing a lit up Jolly Green Giant by Blue Earth(?)Minn. Going 70 we hit a big log lying longways on the freeway, sending us into (Thank God!) the biggest clearest median I'd ever seen! Blown tire, bent rim, a trucker stopped and radioed for a state cop and a tow truck. Tow truck came out in middle of night, towed us into Blue Earth, fixed and sold us what we needed for less than $100 bucks!
On the road in less than 1-1/2 hrs- thinking highly of the fine people of Minnesota....

Blue Earth, MN is exactly where this big guy is at but I seem to remember it being much closer to I-90 than it is now and possibly taller too. Maybe that's the clouded memory from being about 8 years old.

pinknest, love that line

mary, maybe the Babe and his Blue Ox statue from Brainerd will tickle your fancy instead of this ambiguous giant.

great idea Hammer, hopefully they'lll take notice should there be a new Green Giant statue in the future.

Great jingle Beth!

If he DID have a wang it would be green, and I don't know about you, but a green dick can NOT be good.

Oh man! I came to your blog expecting a wise and/or humorous post, and here I get an upskirt of the Jolly Green Giant. Ick.

Could be worse, I guess. You could have posted Britney photos or something.
