Obscurity of the Day: Interesting Georgia
The feature was drawn by someone going by the name Virginia A.C. (one wonders if it is Virginia Aycock, contributor of one item), who illustrated unfathomable mysteries such as a cache of pecans found in a birdhouse, with something less than top-flight penwork. But hey, there was a war on and Virginia undoubtedly felt this was a boost for the morale of Telegraph readers. Our brave boys overseas are pining for news of oddly shaped sweet potatoes and Virginia was dead set on providing them with important tuber updates.
The examples above, all from October-December 1943, are the only ones we know about at this time, but the feature could have, for all we know, run for years ... but don't bet your anthropomorphic taters on it.
