IT'S SO A REAL THING. Photographic evidence: www.flickr.com/photos/hsifyppah/sets/72157645133513258

I wrote this in honour of The Tooles announcing their first album! The tenuous connection between these events may be impossible to explain.

lyrics

Let me tell you of the pepper from the Indiana State! G - C G
It can never cast a shadow, be it early, noon, or late! G - A D
It's taller than a fiddler and it has dimensions two G - C G
And Brooke may have invented it but HEY IT COULD BE TRUE G - D -

Oh, the Indiana Pepper, oh the Indiana Pepper! C - G -
Our state's beloved mascot, fair of face and green of skin! C - A D
Oh the Indiana Pepper, it's the best State emblem ever! G - C G
It can never cast a shadow for it shines from deep within! G - D G
(Not to mention 'cause it's fake and I have photoshopped it in.) G - D G

T'was discovered by Professor Pete, astronomer renowned
And you know that you can trust a man who wears a Tri-State crown
I don't even know if peppers actually grow in Indiana
But it's not like that stopped Maryland - the Baltimore Banana?!

Oh, the Indiana Pepper, oh the Indiana Pepper!
Our state's beloved mascot, fair of face and green of skin!
Oh the Indiana Pepper, it's the best State emblem ever!
It can never cast a shadow for it shines from deep within!
(Not to mention 'cause it's fake and I have photoshopped it in.)

The Indiana Pepper's fame will never e'er be reached
By the Alabama pumpkin or the boring Georgia Peach
It's got nutrition and tradition and a family-friendly vibe, unlike
The Illinois State Wiener which I will not here describe

Oh, the Indiana Pepper, oh the Indiana Pepper!
Our state's beloved mascot, fair of face and green of skin!
Oh the Indiana Pepper, it's the best State emblem ever!
It can never cast a shadow for it shines from deep within!
(Not to mention 'cause it's TOTALLY REAL THE INDIANA STATE PEPPER IS TOTALLY A THING)
