I mean, it’s great that we have the All You Can Drink Milk Stand. But how about a Severely Limited Quantity Milk Stand? Here’s your shot glass. No refills.

I’d pay more for less. Really. What a problem, eh? Please charge me more for smaller portions so I can eat more of everything. But that’s just a dream. I understand that next year the yardstick will be 4 feet long, and will be so dense you’ll have to use both hands to carry it around.

Bigger, better, tastier, sunnier, happier: The fair promises, and the fair delivers. Best year ever. Until the next one.
