The Woodchipper. Woodchipper from the Movie Fargo

When we walked into the Fargo visitors center, one of the people that work there came up to us and let us put on some Minnesota hats like the ones from the movie Fargo to take pictures with the wood chipper. Fun!!

Fargo wood chipper. Woodchipper from the Movie Fargo

One of the most famous "stars" in the Coen Brothers' hit movie "Fargo" is appearing in that city starting Saturday as a tourist attraction.

The actual wood chipper prop from the 1996 Oscar-winning movie is part of an exhibit that runs through May 15, 2011 at the Fargo-Moorhead Visitors Center (Update: extended indefinitely). Other memorabilia from the movie also will be on display. While the wood chipper's time on-screen was brief, its use as a body-disposal device made for a disturbingly memorable scene.

The wood chipper is a Yard Shark with an 8-horse power Briggs and Stratton engine.
