It sounds like it's from Jack and the Beanstalk --

except it's a corn stalk. Some north Iowa farmers are stumped by a super stalk of corn. The more than 5-foot-tall plant is growing in front of the Wild Horse Western Cafe in Manson City. It has 27 ears of corn on it, compared to the typical two or three. Cafe owner Ilene Mittag says she got three plants from a Minnesota farmer in June. Two grew normally, but she says one went ``out of control.'' No word, though, if Jack planted it.
