Hooking school to meet up with the guy that puts up and takes down the Octopuss.

The Toilet Paper Roll - the over the top part; under is intolerable. This ride is usually needed 15 minutes after buying anything deep fried on a stick.

I'll stick to the rides that stay put year round at WOF.

(Not to mention those carnival prices have gone up, KC is more safe and not much more $$$.)

Spinning on the bar stool at the brewery.

It's getting to the point where the people that go to the fair are a lot more scary looking than the carnies. My wife and I drove by last night. Among other attractive people, we saw this couple with a little boy, probably about 5. The boy had a mohawk, his mom was wearing a tight tank top that said "Talk Shat, Get Hit!" on the front, and her boyfriend had on a gangsta t-shirt that said "Hustler". We were tempted to drive past a few more times. Talk about free entertainment....

Actually, I'm going on my annual favorite ride tonight. Bob Dylan and His Band. Starlight Amphitheater. 8 pm. Oh. Yeah.

The Spacehog 360. I have one in my living room. It doesn't do anything. You just drop a lot of acid and sit there. Believe me, it's one hell of a ride.

my first answer would have been removed so I went ahead and removed it. I dont' ride no makes me queasy. I haven't got on anything but the momma since I went to that world of fun place with some kids...and they made me get on something called a mamba...I haven't been the same since that day.

The one that doesn't fly apart while I'm riding on it. Gotta be careful of those carnies.

Matthew looks a little stressed. Maybe he just got off The Puke Slinger.

A toss up between marriage and fatherhood.

Do they still have the octopus? I enjoy watching that one more than riding it. I call it 'The Puke Slinger'
