Posted October 16, 2014

— The 2014 North Carolina State Fair has the theme of "An October Original," and some of the new food offered at this year's fair is truly original, from barbecue on a stick, complete with eastern or Lexington-style sauce, to deep-fried bananas Foster.

    I don't remember requesting you to lie to me about your height and weight. What possible reason would I have to want you to lie to me about your cholesterol?

    The cholesterol, carbs, and trans fats provided at the fair are as dangerous as the rides themselves! Admittedly if you're willing to eat this stuff.

    How about some recipes so we can try some of these delicious sounding dishes at home?

    Last time I went to the fair, most of the people walking around were too large to fit in the ride seats.

    That made my day... lol. I love it when some of these oh so perfect, health conscious folks want to bash every kind of food that has any fat, sugar or whatever.

    Everything is in moderation for crying out loud. It's not like folks eat this stuff everyday, all day.

    For an area that prides itself with progressives, I LOL at these 50's style unhealthy food choices. Don't y'all think its time to grow up and serve food that isn't a boon to the cardiologist?Oh good grief, get a life. The fair is a special event that only comes once a year, like Christmas and Thanksgiving....events we also temporarily indulge in not so healthy foods. NO ONE likes the food police.

    "Most of the folks who stand in these lines, are not in the best of health to begin with."

    Oh really? Is this a scientific fact or just your own "astute" observation? My 6'4", 190 pound frame will be happily standing in line this weekend. Should I share my HDL/LDL ratio and BP with you as well?

    You are so cool and hip with your "LOL." For someone who is a conservative, you sure are obsessed with wanting to limit an individual's freedom of choice.

    Why be such Fair haters? It is the highlight of the year for many, many people. At least the people who attend are outside walking around in the fresh air and enjoying life - not sitting at their computers complaining about everything.
