Crazy for Corn


We love bat-shit crazy around here. And it doesn’t get more bat-shit crazy than people making sculptures out of vegetables and meat-substitute, soy-based products. Such as ... uNICORN.jpg Morningstar Farms -- which manufactures everything from fake bacon and hamburgers to faux chicken nuggets and BBQ ribs -- recently sponsored a nationwide Morningstar Farms Veggie Creations Contest where folks were encouraged to make art out of vegetables. Winner Melissa Pantel-Ku – from Chagrin Falls! – constructed something called “The Unicorn: An a-MAIZE-ing Beast” out of corn. Kernels, stems, husks, and the cob itself all figure into the creepy-looking sculpture. All that’s missing is some butter. -- Michael Gallucci
