Memo To Ms. O'Connor

Dear Ms. O'Connor,

Since I'm certain you are still writing perfect short stories at your home on the Big Farm (where I'm sure you are keeping a much less troublesome pea fowl coop), I thought I would pass this along for your use. I overheard it at the North Carolina State Fair today:

"Step up here and play, folks; there is a guaranteed winner every time. Hey, what would Jesus do? I'll tell you what He'd do - that Guy would step up here and turn one ticket into a thousand tickets. You know He would."

Sincerely,

A lowly, not-humble-enough fan.

Two of my favorite things at the fair:

1. At the world's largest horse, the announcement says "It's alive... See the gigantic horseshoe... SMELL THE AROMA - You'll know this giant horse is alive."

2. I'm always disturbed that the prize winning livestock has the buyer listed on the sign. Harris Teeter is a big supporter, but I'm wondering what NC Farm Bureau Insurance is going to do with that cow. I'd love for Chick Fil A to come in and buy all of the cows one year.

I agree. If you're prize-winning livestock, I think you get a free pass from the chopping block. Should be a bonus incentive in the contract.
