It’s the time of year when everyone is gearing up for the Minnesota State Fair, and one of the highlights has always been when the local newspapers write up the latest grisly, greasy, deep-fat-fried abominations that vendors will be selling there. I’d never eat the stuff, but the descriptions are always gruesomely entertaining.
But not this year.
The City Pages preview is out, and it is disappointing. These things look tasty and tasteful!

This has got to be some kind of satire, right?
