Jake Squarecrow fully recovered following head replacement

Head exploded following botched procedure by Joe Smith

By Ed Waggener

In the long two year history of Squarecrows, it was perhaps the most serious trauma sustained by any participant, when Jake State Farm, Squarecrow #10, while onstage Friday evening, September 30, 2016.


Jake's head exploded while undergoing a preventive procedure by Joe Smith, in what would appear to be a clear case of malpractice. However, State Farm plans no further action, because, in all his years, it was the first time the pumpkin surgeon had ever lost a patient in this manner. Today, Wednesday, October 3, 2016, Jill Smith and associates report that Jake is now back, better than ever, following complete head replacement this morning. A suitable replacement was located yesterday in Somerset.

Jake can be seen on the Fountain Plaza-facing lawn, Historic Adair County Courthouse, 500 Public Square, Columbia, KY.

Jake, Hero of Squarecrow II - After Total Head Replacement

Some say Jake will never know his own story unless someone tells him, how he was at work on Squarecrow II, how his head exploded following a cranial fill gone wrong, and how all was save following a Columbia Squarecrow medical first, a total head replacement. His has been the most compelling story of Squarecrow casualties, but it wasn't the last. Today, one day before Downtown Days 2016, investigative photographer Jakob Beckley, reports three Squarecrows MIA. It's hoped that they, too, will back in time for Squarecrow Judgment Day, for People's Choice voting Friday and Saturday, October 7 & 8, 2016. Oh yeah, Jake would love it if you come by and have your picture took, with him. - EW
