So, I went to the Greater Baton Rouge State Fair on Sunday, fully expecting it to be a jackpot of Blogging Gold. As you can see by the title, it wasn't quite as ridonkulous as predicted, but still pretty amusing for the cityfolk likes of myself.
One entertaining exihbit was their farm animal competition. On Sunday, it was a goat show. I happen to enjoy evil/personable goats, and I also liked how the little girls put on their Western shirts for the contest.
Sometimes I think, six months ago, I walked out my door and nearly bumped into Josh Hartnett. Now I go out and see this guy. It's probably best to not dwell on things like that. I think I inadvertantly captured some preteen drama, too (in the background). Some kid is not going home with a ribbon, but he does have a nice young lady to comfort him.
Now this right here, the Beef Sundae stand, this is the best sight of the fair. A Hot Beef Sundae, in case you were wondering, is made up in the configuration of an ice cream sundae, only with mashed potatoes instead of ice cream, gravy instead of chocolate sauce, beef, shredded cheese "sprinkles" and a cherry tomato on top. Watch an investigative report about the Beef Sundae here, with a very Southern-looking hostess. They also serve iced cappuccino there, because they're classy.
This booth had a highly entertaining array of headband choices (the caps are pretty amusing as well, click to enlarge) with headbands reading: Bullet Boys, Poison, Dokken, Raisin Hell (as in the California Raisins), Funky Cold Medina, Spuds (as in Spuds MacKenzie), Winger, Breaker (as in breakdancer), Whitesnake, and Desperately Seeking Susan. I bought one for Cooper; you'll see him modeling it at the end of this post.
Here's another example of goats being impossibly evil. Three horns!?
Finally, here's Cooper modeling his new neckband that I scored at the state fair, which says HAMMER TIME.
