First of all, Note from Rational Self to Irrational Self: Linda, never, ever reveal what other movies you have not seen. You are apparently a freak of nature because you have not seen LOTR and Titanic. Save some face and stop telling people what movies you have not seen and what restaurants you have not been to and how you silently count all the time!"
Reply from Irriational Self: "But, it would make a great Thursday Thirteen topic: 13 exceedingly common things I have never done. And since it includes counting to 13, all the better."
Anyway, here's what that photo is about: Great News! Local newspaper headline:
INDIANA STATE FAIR BANS TRANS FATS
"The Indianapolis State Fair, land of the deep-fried everything, will ban trans fat oils from its fryers this year, making it one of the first fairs in the country to do away with the artery-clogging grease."
Marla Calico [which, by the way, is a great name if you're into names like Cindy
and I are] spokeswoman for the International Association Fairs and Expositions said, "Certainly they [Indiana] are on the cutting edge."
Boy, HOWdy! Don't you know we are.
So now we can stick our heads into vats of "healthier" fair food, like bobbing for apples, only we'll be bobbing for:
Healthier Deep fried Oreos
Healthier Deep fried Twinkies
Healthier Deep fried Peanut Butter Cups
Healthier Dinosaur Drumsticks (deep fried turkey legs)
Healthier Elephant Ears
Healthier Deep fried ice cream
Healthier Deep fried onion rings
Healthier Real Fair Health Food: Deep fried vegetables
And my favorite ridiculous healthier deep fried item: strawberries. Do you think deep-frying them might compromise their nutritional value? naaah.
