I’ve never had anything of note created using my likeness. I once tried to carve my face next to Lincoln’s on Mount Rushmore, but I could never get the nose right, and I was banned from South Dakota. I’m not that broken up about it because I still have North Dakota, the superior of the Dakotas.
Because of my inability to be immortalized on a grand scale, I am jealous of Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch. No, Lynch isn’t having his face dynamited in next to Lincoln’s, but someone did build an awesome corn maze in his honor.
This year’s corn maze at the Rutledge Farm (In Olympia, Washington) features a nearly full-body image of the Seahawks running back.
“Every year, it’s a big decision, but we really enjoyed his Beast Mode and the fans were so behind that,” says Camille Hemenway, of Rutledge.
The image was laid-out by GPS and not cut into a planted field.
She says the maze, planted in March, will open to the public on Aug. 10 and Lynch will visit Sept. 1 to help raise money for his charity, Fam 1st Foundation and sign autographs.
Seems like a bit of an odd choice considering Lynch’s checkered past, but it does look like an awesome way to kill a couple of hours, followed by several hours of pleading for a way out, rolling around in the fetal position, and then finally accepting that there is no way out and the maze is your home now.
Full marks to Lynch for using this as an opportunity to raise money for charity. If you want to learn more about the Fam 1st Family Foundation, visit their website here.
Hat tip to KSK for bringing this awesomeness to my attention
