Crazy Cornhusk TDA

Suzanne and I spent a week in Ohio recently, and one thing I managed to get done (despite the extreme lack of broadband) was documenting possibly the strangest tribute to TDA ever.

The title of this blog post pretty much sums it up: It's a cornhusk doll version of Those Darn Accordions, commissioned by my mom. One thing that's particularly jarring -- other than the cornhusk creations' resemblance to voodoo dolls -- is that the folk artist who created them dressed them in period clothes. So what you've got here is a collection of cornhusk dolls in super-old-school outfits (or maybe a modern-day Amish version of TDA).

You've pretty much got to see it to believe it. (And no fair blaming me if you have Children of the Corn nightmares.)
