The removal of the cherry from the spoon at the Walker’s sculpture garden is the most covered story involving a fruit in the history of Minnesota, it would appear.
This picture is from MPR senior producer Jim Bickal. Though the spoon looks lost, it got me to thinking in my patented there-are-no-problems-only-opportunities way.
What might be a fitting food to put there instead? Cheerios to honor our unofficial state oat cereal? Porridge to accurately portray the budget situation?
