Just recently had to drive into Indiana. I would know I had passed into Indiana even without the road signs, because of the sudden prevalence of lawn “art.” Plywood cut outs of fat women’s butts, Dutch children kissing, wagon wheels, LAWN JOCKEYS (don’t get me started), but most of all, cement geese.
I don’t know why, but Hoosiers are really enamored of their cement geese. They are everywhere. And they wear clothes. Mostly gingham aprons and bonnets, but occasionally seasonal things, like Santa hats.
I do not understand the lure of lawn geese, and I’m not kidding when I say they are everywhere. Lawn geese must be a huge industry in Indiana.
Is there something I’m missing? What is the special attraction of cement geese?
