Uncle Sam no longer has his pink friend.

Uncle Sam and Pink Elephant

I was back home visiting my mom in Vincennes, and both Uncle Sam and Pinky are there. And, yes, if you stand to Uncle Sam's right you will get a laugh. He used to be at the corner of 7th and College Sts, but it caused too many accidents from people staring at his "hand."

Uncle Sam Statue and Pink Elephant

In front of the local car wash on Hart St, one will find a rather large (15-20 foot tall) replica of our own Uncle Sam clutching his lapel with one hand -- his other outstretched to the passerby. When viewed from the front it looks like he is asking for a contribution. From the side, well....well it may explain why he was moved from a busy intersection in the heart of the town to a more open area. Whether by design or not, Uncle Sam definitely will make one grin when remembering those words "all men are created equal...."
