Literacy on the Midway

Posted October 1, 2007

I went to the Dixie Classic Fair last weekend to test out a camera and polish my mad funnel cake eating skillz. One thing I did not expect was to spend a lot of time reading on the Midway.

But I did! It was because of a kid's funhouse called Pan's Palace of Fun. The whole airbrushed exterior was covered with bunches of inside jokes. I stood there for 15 minutes and just read.

Unfortunately WRAL's blog software does not allow me to embed good-sized photos here, but I created a set of some of the jokes at Flickr. Be sure to check out this funhouse if it ends up on the Fairgrounds midway.

    Thats great, I'll definitely look for this one.

    I couldn't make out the small print on the Election sign though, could you offer a translation?
