Happy Corn Cob Balloon

So, I'm walking around in my local Ralph's grocery store, when suddenly I spot one of these guys (see picture) above me. Yes, its a large mylar corn-on-the-cob balloon, with a grin big enough to make anyone smile. I wondered "why is that corn smiling?" ... and then I noticed something.

The nozzle to the balloon is between the corn's "legs", and though it doesn't show up very well in the picture here, it's a good 3" long (for a 33" tall balloon, that's a pretty good size, trust me). To make matters worse, this is also where the balloon tie string/ribbon was attached.

Yes, Mr. Corn is having a good day.

Does that qualify as vegetarian sexual harassment?

Are you kidding? I'd pay good money to have that done!
