So I went to the huge San Diego County Fair on Saturday. Several notable sights.
Near Kiddieland I discovered Bible Story Castle sitting next to an Army recruitment station. Of course I made a snotty comment to my friend about locating Brain Wash Central. That's when I noticed several Army personnel doing recruitment of a different sort. Yep, three soldiers engaging two Hooters girls right in front of the Bible Story Castle. Unfortunately none of my pics captured big Mr. Beret there actually FLEXING HIS MUSCLES for the young lasses. My Lord.
I also saw two of the nine surviving Munchkins from "The Wizard of Oz": Margaret Pellegrini and Clarence Swensen. (The picture deceives because they're standing next to other short people.) Swenson failed to use his soldier uniform to the same effect as the gents noted above.
Next we watched the monster truck show, which improbably featured the 2005 Freestyle World Champion "Bounty Hunter" in the same competition as a 15-year old kid. Outside I discovered a display monster truck sponsored by Ecology Auto Parts that had appropriately, and likely without ironic intent, been named "Ecology's Eliminator."
