Nothing "fair" boutit. It's "extremely" hot. Smelly. Expensive. And for all but a handful of entrants, extremely disappointing.

Yeah, I was always picked last on the playground too . . .

Years ago I worked with a man whose family were carnies. He said they were like locusts, going from town to town, stealing anything that wasn't tied down. I'm pretty sure they took a flatbed trailer from a construction site in K.C. in the eighties. He seemed to want to talk boutit a lot . . .

The Douglas County Free Fair is pretty cheap entertainment, it's too hot this year for me to consider going. If it were cooler, I'd enjoy showing my grandkids the animals.

I'd like to show my grandkids the 'carnies. They are the lowest forms of human life in America, so it's fun to look at them like animals in the zoo.

At least they work for a living. And when they do steal, at least there is no pretense about it... unlike the eastern 'dotte and much of KCMO who sit at home and steal money from the taxpayer. I would have to say the welfare and SS fraud people are lower forms of life in America.

Favorite thing about the fair.... 400 lb carnie chicks of course.

Well lets number off his traits. 1. He likes carnival food. 2. He may have a cat. 3. Wears glasses. 4. Smiley I think he's a real catch. Call me Miles!
