Yeah so we went to the Indiana State Fair yesterday to look at piggies and eat our weight in fried food. I think it’s fitting in light of a certain healthy living conference going on this weekend…that’s all I’m going to say.
We did our best to fit in as much debauchery as is reasonable with a pregnant lady: we ate fried food, walked the livestock barns, bought some (losing) lottery tickets, snarked at the fair folk and said things like, “Carnies. Small hands. Smell like cabbage.”
We also did a lot of sitting and people-watching. Have you ever noticed how a lot of people at the fair are…sort of funny-looking? I think it has something to do with being malnourished. Last night, we saw a lot of bad teeth, sunken cheeks, veiny thighs and bloated waistlines. My husband remarked, “do you feel like you’re the best-looking person here right now?”
No, you didn’t just read that.
Let’s venture into the livestock barn, shall we?
I totally never had a problem reconciling my love for bacon with my love for adorable piggy friends. I guess I’m just really courageous and resourceful that way. Neat, huh?
Here’s the world’s biggest boar (1400 pounds!) having his dinners:
And here are the world’s biggest boar’s balls:
I really bring the class, don’t I?
And with that image still dancing around in your brain hole, let’s talk about fair food…
Do you know how hard it is to find natural, organic foods at the fair? Yeah, neither do I because I’VE NEVER TRIED.
They also have that place that makes the burgers out of Krispy Kremes, but I didn’t get a photo. Apologies.
It was a truly inspirational evening.
