It’s that time of year again, when our patron saint of fried edibles (Big Tex) is hoisted onto his soap box and beckons the citizens of the metroplex to indulge in fair-going delights. As is tradition, we made the pilgrimage (across the street) to pay our respects to the deep fryer, make donations to the carnival games, and take a seat in various high-velocity spinning chairs of adrenaline (and nausea). There was much laughter, and possibly some excellently executed dance moves. We enjoyed the bounty of fried innovation with the likes of fried Jell-O®, deep-fried pulled pork “FUNYUN®” dings, and State Fair Cookie Fries. Cookie fries! What a time to be alive! We also visited the baby animals of the petting zoo, and felt a bit sad we couldn’t cuddle each and every one. (Sans the porcupines.) Fair Day was a success, as usual. Take a look at some of our musings below, and rest assured that many Corny Dogs were harmed in the making of this adventure.
