The envelope, please: The Concrete Potato Awards for 2010

As 2010 comes to a close, it's time for our annual Concrete Potato Awards, given for excellence in eccentric roadside attractions we've been to in the last year. Named after the Idaho Potato Expo, seen in the masthead of this blog, it been a tradition here at Eccentric Roadside for over a 50th of a century. It was tough to whittle the nominees down to 10, but whittle we did and now, without further ado and in no particular order we present this year's Concreteys (and remember, it's an honor just to be nominated...)

I LOVE award shows!
My pick from your Top 10... Why, naturally, "How To Photograph An Atomic Bomb". But, $39.95 for that book? How big can it be...
Step 1: Get camera
Step 2: Raise to eyes
Step 3: Kiss your ass goodbye!

Happy New Year!

I'm guessing you don't need a flash either, Bill.

Bill said...

NO! Important tip: You ALWAYS want to use as much natural light as possible!

Great round-up! I've had that giant utensil on my "to-do" list for awhile. I need to put a fork in it and get it done! :)

Wendy: Thanks, and there's no "tine" like the present to see that giant fork!

Carla: Thanks, and may the forks be with you!
