Side o' Beef
This life-size side of beef (complete with USDA inspection stamps on the reverse side) was created for a play in Boston, the name of which escapes me at this point. I do remember that the play was set during the depression when meat was a very expensive commodity. The side of beef had to survive repeated performances being disguised in an overcoat and hat and falling off a diner stool at a counter as the black marketeers smuggled it out of town.
