A Trip

Puyallup Fair

If you've never been to the Puyallup Fair, you're insane. This big funky fest has something for everyone, from thrill seekers (who can get shot into the air by the Extreme Scream) to outsider-art lovers (who'll gape in awe at the Hobby Hall exhibits) to those looking for reasons to commit suicide (the morbidly obese people zipping around in motorized wheelchairs with deep-fried Twinkies should do the trick). (Puyallup Fairground, 110 Ninth Ave SW, Puyallup. 10 am– 10 pm, $10. Through Sept 21.)

Poor child has no idea what's about to happen... I wonder, have kids ever been hurt trying to best a sheep?

not to mention tons and tons of good stage shows - cheap - and 4 H kids learning about kissing and sex in the process of getting ribbons and prize money for projects - city kids are so deprived

the only problem with the fair are the pale skinned city know nothing gawkers from Seattle who act like they just fell off the proverbial turnip truck, or, that their family doesn't live in a trailer somewhere in rural USA

not to mention freshly cooked REAL elephant ears with prime raspberry jam?? the best - and then there is shouting at the R booth, generally to cheers from passing folks - always fun

Long drive, lots of lines and crowds, unhealthy food, not warm or sunny, plus I've seen huge hogs and cows before.
No thanks.

But still -- vote Obama, please.

Thank you.

REAL elephant ears? How will the poor elephants hear the jaunty hoedown music without their ears??

REAL elephant ears as in ORIGINAL receipt, freshly made and freshly cooked and browned and so delicious

wonder why elephants have not sued for a sliver of royalty revenue?

I've always wanted a def leppard mirror and to get shot at in the parking lot!

FYI - They did away with the deep-fried Twinkies a couple of years ago. I think the whole fair is trans-fat free, too.
