The Big Guy


From the archives - Minnesota, 2012

 I don't think the Jolly Green Giant should be too concerned about how deep the snow is right now.

But that cold wind blowing up his backside may be another matter.

That's something you have to hand it to the Americans. Cartoon characters are often given a statue and not those of modest dimensions. Thanks for showing us.

Not much to wear indeed, a kind of "Hulk" , lost all his clothes and tried to cover up with some leaves.

He looks like the guy on the tin of peas. Ha-ha.

Great takes.

According to Wikipedia this statue receives 10,000 visitors per year. I'm sure they all enjoyed themselves.
