Do they offer deep-fat fried Twinkies and Snickers? I don't want to eat them; I'd just like to see someone else do it!

75x55 (Anonymous) says… "and the fair being the last places where tube tops are fashionable…."

It is not that the fair is the last place where tube tops are is that the same people that made them fashionable in the 70's are the ones wearing them to the fair 30 years later.

Regarding food: anything fried.

Shaved hobo meat, right off the rotisserie.

Oh, and another vote for funnel cake.

Funnel cakes! I hear fairs have fried candy bars now! I wonder they are good?

Taco salad can be considered healthy? Please! Beef swimmng in grease, ton of iceburg lettuce that has zero nutritional value, ton of cheese, and I'll bet it even comes in one of those deep-fried tortilla bowls. Likely around 750 calories. Healthy? Don't kid yourself. Just go for the corn dog already. Likely half the calories and much tastier.

Has anyone thought about what's gonna happen when the homeless people combine with the carnies during fair week with the shelter located out there? Talk about not a pretty sight.................

I'm getting sick just hearing these names - now I remember why I don't go to fairs. That, and the fair being the last places where tube tops are fashionable....

"See, Marge? I told you they could deep-fry my shirt!"

"I didn't say 'They couldn't', I said 'You shouldn't!"

I guess the fav corn dog probably wins. It is usually the first thing we eat. After that chili cheese fries. Mr. Charlie like the turkey legs. He likes to try new things. One year he ate a pig ear sandwich. NASTY.

Funnel cake and foot long corn dogs can't get any better.

Tomorrow's question: Who is your favorite mediocre president? Oh, did I get the meaning of "fair" wrong?

Seriously though, all fair food is gross! Funnel cakes? Yuck! Cotton Candy? Just give me some insulin now! Corn dogs? Well, I didn't need that colon anyways!

Another vote for funnel cakes.
