The other day I commented on a picture Margaret had posted of a set of Paul Bunyan & Babe the Blue Ox statues. At first I thought they were the ones here in Bemidji, Minnesota, but it turns out hers are actually from Eureka, California.
Sorry Margaret, even though your Babe indeed has a serious set of nads (unfortunately blue ones), Paul Bunyan is Midwest folklore and CA is just trying to capitalize on the huge roadside attraction opportunity we invented.
Anyway, this whole episode caused me to look up it up on Bemidji's home page to get this picture, and in doing so I noticed they had an actual live "Paul and Babe cam."
Only in Minnesota will you find a webcam that gives you the opportunity to watch nobody visiting inanimate objects in the middle of winter. Go ahead and click here to see for yourself.
And if you watch carefully you might just see a wayward crow land on one of Babe's horns. I did, and it only took 45 minutes.
Help... I've fallen and I can't get back up! If this post gave you a chuckle please give me a smile.
