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.)

No disrespect to Mr. Merithew, but have you considered these as the new publicity shots?!
