Just a few miles north of Nevada MO on Hwy 71 is a giant Morel Mushroom! I guess they grow and sell morel mushrooms there. I live pretty close by.

The mushroom is 30 ft. tall. Can't say we care for that honking big web URL sign. That's a bad precedent for giant food (or any) statues. Makes this mushroom, if not poisonous, much less delectable as a photo op! Note: It lights up at night -- and so does the web sign. June 2014: The web address sign has been removed!
