Driving down Highway 141 through Iowa you may come across a different type of town marker. Perched at the entrance to Coon Rapids, Iowa, “In the Heart of Corn Country” is a sign not only welcoming you to the fair town, but also displaying a rotating piece of corn so big if you tried to eat it you’d be picking remnants from your teeth for weeks.
Standing at about 10-feet tall this ear of corn slowly rotates as an American flies above it. Talk about genetically modified vegetables!
And in case you don’t believe me, here’s a video of it rotating!
