Remember the mazes that used to be printed on the backs of cereal boxes every now and then? What about arcade-type maze games? Imagine a real life version of that. How could I resist?
Oh - I couldn't possibly.
So, when first presented with the fact that a corn maze actually existed, I thought my childhood cereal box fantasies had finally come true! If only Count Chocula were here to share the moment with me... but alas - he wasn't.
"The Sacagewea Corn Maize" in Sauvie Island.
Car filled parking lots mean large crowds, and the corn maze ticket line didn't disappoint. Oh goody.
Take a look at those people. Talk about W-H-I-T-E-! Not that I expect to bump into Jay-Z & Ricky Martin working out lyrics for a revamped "Livin' La Vida Corn Maze" at Sauvie Island, but still... Sometimes I forget just how diverse this city isn't.
Waiting for a better look at the map...
A glimpse at the rules...
And here's what keeps this operation legal...
If we get killed by a runaway corn stalk, it won't be as if we weren't warned. But fear not - they've hired security.
OK - enough chit-chat... it's time to take a look at the maze. Here's a shot from above.
And a few shots from inside the maze.
The maze itself was well designed. It really was everything I expected it to be, minus the suburbanites moving through it like locusts.
Suburbanites make corn-man angry. I feel his pain.
Corn-Jesus approved. (can you blame him?)
And what the hell... here's a shot of myself, looking rather corn-tastic, if I don't say so...
Right. And on that note, we're outa' here...
...but not before saying goodbye to our new friend in the animal barn, Goat-Satan.

I can't believe suburbanites didn't consider corn-Jesus to be sacareligious.
