    There are 2 other classic geoduck ones but I couldn't find either one online. One has a guy holding one out after defeating it, the other has one getting carted off in a wagon.

    I was watching a TV program about the Dust Bowl on PBS the other night, and they mentioned that those agricultural exaggeration postcards (i.e., the big potatos, fruits, vegetables, etc.) were often created as propaganda to encourage folks to move out west, buy a parcel of land, and start farming.
