What's To Eat At The Fair?

One of the things I look forward to every year is the opening of the San Diego County Fair, or as most locals call it, the Del Mar Fair. The thing that fascinates so many of us is to see what new heart bombs the food service people have come up with for us. There's always big coverage by the San Diego Union and the local TV news channels. We now look back almost nostalgically to the innocent days of years gone by when the worst thing you could eat was a deep fried Twinkie. Hah! We scoff at those now. This year we've advanced to the stage where if you have the nerve you can order deep fried butter or chocolate covered bacon. The Heart Attack Cafe has really raised the bar. Take that, France. We may not be the best soccer players in the world, but nobody puts out unhealthier food than our county fairs. U.S.A.!

The song here is "Oreo Cookie Blues" by Lonnie Mack.
