WTF, L.A. County Fair?September 5, 2008
The “Fair Food” page at the L.A. County Fair website falls into the “un-parodyable” category. If I asked you to pick which one of these three items was fake fair fare, with the other two being real, could you?
- An ice cream waffle cone with a full pint of ice cream stuffed into the cone
- Dipping sauce served in a bucket that you wear around your neck
- Deep fried spam & pineapple skewers
It’s item 2, in case you’re curious. One of these days I’m going to make the trip to Pomona just to photograph the outrageousness; but on a certain level, I fear that close proximity to such offerings would just lead me to find the stupidest item & order it. I have a weakness. “Stunned mouse in a Dixie cup? How much does it cost? Has it been fried?”
