Cobra Girl!, state fair 2007

The sideshow was a highlight at the fair this year. I have always wanted to see it but never had....Until NOW!

Cobra Girl was advertised on the outside of the tent, as well as by the fast talking fast hyping man outside the tent who tried to lure people inside, along with a fire eating midget. Cobra Girl as you can see is a girl with her hear stuck through a thing in a box to make it look like she is a giant spider. Why? I don't know but it's funny. The announcer even mentioned it as being something like you would see in the weekly world news. A very funny tabloid seen in the grocery store, with stories about Bigfoot, aliens, and Elvis.

The Famous Butter Cow!

The Ohio State Fair has a long tradition of having a life size sculpture made of butter. This is a must see for me when I visit. It is made of 2 tons of butter including the accompanying theme sculpture that goes with it. This year a fairy is flying and taking a piece of Swiss cheese from a gigantic slab. This is to demonstrate that Ohio is the nations largest producer of Swiss cheese! This thing is right up there with the freak show I love it. It has been there ever since I was a kid and who knows how long before. I also had some fried fudge at the fair which I would highly recommend. A great time was had by all.
