UPDATE: I was so sad to hear about the tragedy that happened at the fair. My prayers are with the families of the victims.

I was in Indianapolis two weeks ago working at Crackers Comedy Club and it was the opening weekend of the Indiana State Fair. I’d never been to a state fair before. All I can say is: WOW. I was expecting to see some giant fruit and vegetable contests and folks showing off their livestock (I watch a lot of TV), and while there were tractor exhibitions and music tents, and one miserable elephant forced to walk around in circles and give rides to fair-goers, what I saw most was food. And most of it fried. I don’t think there’s anything they won’t fry at a state fair…

Even the veggies are battered and fried. I would like to draw your attention specifically to the photo on the bottom right, advertising among other things — deep fried Kool-Aid. I could not even imagine what that would look, feel, taste like. But I Googled it and apparently it’s the hot new state fair food:

Yuck. Besides the barbecue stand who offered a batter-free, if not healthier alternative…

I think this might have been the only food stand that wasn’t hocking something fried:

There was literally so much junk there I was overwhelmed. I had a funnel cake and some lemonade and that’s all I could stand. Perhaps the best diet plan for me is to constantly surround myself with obscene amounts of fatty fried foods. Like reverse psychology or something. I’ll let you know how that works out for me.

    Ok, so the fried “kool-aid” is really donuts that have been flavored with kool aid…Interesting idea but no thanks!
