State Fair - a state of affairs

Come little children of all ages, let me guide you through the highlights of the Utah State Fair. I am obviously a plaster pig with artistic proclivities. Obviously.

Here is a sampling of what we have on offer at the State Fair, along with carnies, deep fried peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and Twinkies, a sideshow act claiming to feature an actual live human being, and nearly forgotten musical acts from every era and genre.

Here we have Ms. Potato Face.

Baa baa black sheep, covering up her wool, and resting while observed by small children.

Some people eat too many curly fries at the Fair, and have to rest.

More resting.

Horns are often bigger than you might think.

She only looks like a gourd.

The butter cow. Ten thousand heart attacks in one refrigerated display case. The best part of the state fair, every year.

  1. Butter cow? Americans are plain weird. And love their fat.
