The town where I grew up, the place that made me the woman I am today, has a claim to fame. Algona is the home of the World's Largest Cheeto.
And man, am I proud. :)
I had to search for this photo on Flickr as I have never actually laid eyes on the large cheeto in person, and seeing it now gives me a slight urge to hide under the table. Not because I'm embarrassed of being from the town of the World's Largest Cheeto...
Nope, it's because they obviously forgot to consult my mother on tasteful design. Then again, I don't know what design would go better with a cheeto than a purple pillow and some gold spray-painted pine cones.
Who knows... maybe it is increasing tourism. It certainly does scream, look at me! I have a few outfits I wore in high school that probably screamed the same thing, but since it's my blog and I have creative control you'll be spared those photos.
One frightening image from Algona is more than you'll ever need.
