In this series we look back at a few of my entries in the Iowa Corn trophy contest that failed to make the cut.* Parts 1 and Parts 2 can be found here.
*This did not actually happen.
ENTRY #3: The Wacky Staircase
STATED REASON FOR REJECTION: "This trophy is physically impossible and therefore violates rule one for the Iowa Corn Trophy Competition: "All trophies must be physically possible." Also, the suggestion that Iowa and Iowa State are stuck in a never-ending up-and-down procession centered around football where neither ever truly achieves anything is inimical to the ideal of friendly competition that lies at the heart of the Iowa Corn Cy-Hawk rivalry. Additionally, we're not sure why Babe the Pig is there, but we're pretty sure you're making fun of someone."
