"John Henry looked at [a turnip he plowed up] and he could see a face in it, so he drew a picture of the face that was in the turnip and put it in Frank Turner's shop with a $50 price tag on it. The next day, somebody bought it, which amazed everybody, especially Frank Turner and Butch Anthony.
So Butch said, 'Well dang if he can do it, I can too.' So Butch started making drawings."
-Fred Fussell, telling the origin story of Butch Anthony's Museum of Wonder
