One Pig

What happens when you ask the right questions...



Next for Ms. Meindertsma?

A chicken?

A cow?

A truckload of "100% recyclable" plastic on its way to the waste management facility?

An acre's-worth of feed corn?

The King Corn project started with just that question: If we grow some corn and drop it into the system, where will it end up? They decided it wasn't possible, gave up, and made an awesome movie anyway. I wonder if the barrier they hit was corn-specific. And I wonder if Ms. Meindertsma could have helped them get around it.

Big thanks to Lauren for the introduction. Even The Mighty LA can't keep her from sharing the goodness.
