"In the summer of '92 the Woodbill Brothers gathered from the four great corners of the globe to celebrate a little known species; the people of corn, as well as other cereals. They are made of corn; they are made of bread, rye or whatever. Virtually brainless, heartless etc., these creatures nevertheless can speak, sing, have feelings, & are perpetually hungry. They need to be recognised as a whole people, & granted citizenship to the United States with all the priveleges that go with it."
Recorded at Bellemeade Phonics in Richmond, VA.
