Great Illinois Corn Fake

The so-called Great Illinois Corn Flake (it’s actually a Frosted Flake!) doesn’t really look all that much like Illinois if you ask me.

In fact, if you rotate it, I think it look more like South Carolina.
And if you're trying to market the flake as the splitting image of Illinois, why would you provide size perspective using a dime instead of the Lincoln side of a penny? With Lincoln’s mug right next to it, state by association might help in suspending disbelief.
