Very informative

Can't get enough Kernel Knowledge.

Is Porn short for Cornpone?

Very witty comments on this one. Without stepping over the line, although just barely.

Elephant's eye

Is that what they mean by "The corn is as high as an elephant's eye"?

It's not real

It's only an allusion.

Lilliputians

So those farmers' daughters are like, what, seven inches tall?

Now see ear

Seems that some of these southern California beauties got quite an earful. (Click images for full size. Beware - in some locales, these images might be considered cornographic.)

Hang on to my ear dear

There's no way anybody could convince me that anyone was too innocent in 1936 to see the subliminal aspect of this photo.

I could get corn almost anywhere in 1936 but I would move to Pomona in a heartbeat after one look at this pic.

Me so corny.

Yeah, I said it.

No innuendo here, folks

Nope, none at all, move along ...
