One of our favorite parts of the Minnesota state fair every year is hearing the public responses to the "KARE 11 Ear."

Photojournalist Ben Garvin brought the ear back for one time only this year asking a question that always delivers - "What are you proud of?"

The ear was made by "In the Heart of the Beast" Puppet Theater in Minneapolis.

By the way, Ben says shooting an ear video is as miserable as it looks - hot, embarrassing, and uncomfortable - but the final product is worth it.
