Welcome to the Realm™ - Version 5.0...

Denizens, we have the Great State Fair Of Texas&#153 coming up – which, if you’ve ever been to one of these shindigs, means lots of rides, lots of “pin-the-tail-on-the-Demoscum” -donkey” type games, ferris wheels, whirly-gigs, turkey legs, sausage-on-a-stick, corn dogs…and everyone’s favorite:&#160 Fried you-name-it-we’ve-got-it.

No.&#160 I’m not kidding.

We’re talking fried Twinkies&#169 (I blogged on that once, just can’t find it now), fried chili, fried Popsicles&#169, fried Oreos&#169…you get the idea.

This year’s GSFoT&#153 features, among other things, Texas Fried Frito Pie, fried lemonade and fried chocolate.

But you knew it was coming, didn’t you?&#160 How did the saying go? “For every moment of pleasure, there must be an equal moment of pain”?&#160 Well – here comes your pain:&#160 A fucking busybody that just has&#160 to spoil your fun by wringing his hands in angst and wondering if all these deep-fried fat grams, sugar grams and calories is (gasp, argh!) Gooooood Forrrrrrr Usssssss??!!?!!!!ONE?!

The top eight new State Fair foods — including Texas Fried Frito Pie, Fried Lemonade, Fried Chocolate, oh my — sure sound good.

But are they good for you?

I think you know the answer.

We conducted a nutritional analysis of the top new foods that debut later this week when the State Fair opens Friday. Here’s a look at our findings — this story ran on the front page of today’s Dallas Morning News.

And here’s a nifty chart highlighting the eight foods, with more nutrition details.

Y’know, I don’t s’pose it’s ever occured&#160 to this dumb little turd of a tool that maybe – JUST EFFIN’ MAYBE – the people of the great state of Texas…oh, I dunno…DON’T GIVE A ROYAL FUCKING SHIT ABOUT WHETHER FAIR FOOD IS GOOD FOR US OR NOT?!?!?!?!?!?!

Seriously.&#160 You’re at the freakin’ State Fair.&#160 All a State Fair is&#160 is rides, attractions and food.&#160 And most of the food is deep-fried.

And we’re supposed to rend our clothing and wear sackcloth & ashes because we ATE TOO MANY SUGAR AND FAT GRAMS AT A PLACE WHERE THAT’S PRETTY MUCH ALL THERE IS?!

Great Honkin’ Cthulu&#153, what a maroon.&#160
