Egg Juggling and the history of corn mazes

Egg Juggling
Originally uploaded by tolkien4me

Bertha Jean had to supplement her egg juggling routine with advertising. Her mama made the rooster costume and so she would juggle every day hoping someone would buy her eggs.

One night, Bertha Jean saw bright lights over the barn and the next morning, strange patterns in the cornfield astounded her.
She told the local newspaper that you could get lost in that cornfield with all those weird patterns... it was like a maze. People started coming to see the maze and she was able to charge insane prices for people to get lost.

Thereafter, Bertha Jean only wore the rooster costume and juggled for children who came on school buses to see the crop patterns.
