(Newser) – Some might say it's gross, but you have to give Bruce Andersland an "A" for effort. As a Valentine for his wife, the Minnesota farmer created a half-mile-wide heart made out of manure. His wife of 37 years says it's the biggest and most creative Valentine she's ever seen. And the material doesn't bother her, Beth Andersland tells the Albert Lea Tribune: "Why not do something fun with what you got?"
