Stop Transcanada Pipeline sign, Oct. 5, 2011.

Moe Doiron/Moe Doiron/The Globe and Mail

It started as something for Cornhuskers fans to raise at University of Nebraska football games, a foam hand with a gesture printed on one side and an ear of corn on the other. But the three Nebraska-raised brothers who created the prop thought it could be used for something bigger than football, and they found that something in the pipeline fight. Now, with "Stop TransCanada Pipeline" on one side and "No oil in our soil" on the other, it's part of the effort to "give TransCanada the cornfinger."
