POTUS Pumpkins

If not for the Thompson family, this blog would be bereft of new material. The previous post "Franklin Pierce on 'Futurama'" sprang from the keen observation by Ryan Thompson of Franklin Pierce in a contemporary cartoon. Now his sister, Jenny Mais, has documented another appearance of Handsome Frank in popular culture. While on a visit to Pumpkin Fantasyland in Ligonier, Indiana, Jenny took these photographs of the the Presidents of the United States (POTUS) exhibit.

A tip of the plastic hat to Ms. Mais for supplying these pictures!
