So Hubbs and I are taking the kids to the Eastern States Exposition (aka The Big E) tomorrow. I went to their website to print tickets and as I was parousing the site I read a RIDICULOUS excerpt. It basically read (and I'm paraphrasing here) that Americans spend billions of dollars a year dieting and that you should give yourself a rest from the carrots, yogurt and celery sticks to indulge in their vast array of disgusting, fat laden monstrosities!
Among some of the offerings are your standard Fair Food - corndogs, funnel cakes, loaded potatoes, ice cream sundaes. But this year it seems the Fry-o-lator Fairy came for a visit! A few items you can now clog every artery in your body with include:
Fried PB& J's
Fried Butter - 2 Flavors no less!
Fried Jelly Beans
The Craz-E Burger (a cheeseburger sandwiched between a glazed doughnut that has been buttered and grilled. I believe you can get that with or without bacon....)
Now I get that it's a fair and you're supposed to have fun and let your hair down, but C'MON! Eeeeewwwwwww......
I'm gonna file all those in the "just because you can, doesn't mean you should" drawer.
If you need me, I'll be seeking out the chicken salad and shave ice.....
