FrancoFile: Sybarite: How are you supposed to know in advance how much deep fried crap you can shovel down your gullet until explosive diarrhea sets in? That number can vary vastly over a lifetime.

Never fear.  There will be ticket purchase booths scattered everywhere.

Lots of wine & beer festivals do the same thing.

I HATE the ticket system. Gay Pride in Phoenix 2001... now known as Gay Shame: Friends of mine had come up from UofA in Tucson and we had each bought at least $30 in tickets for beer. We had already paid $10 for admission, so we're already $40 in the hole (tee-hee.)

About 20 minutes in, a microburst comes out of nowhere and blows shiat all over the place. Tent and canopy stakes were yanked out of the ground and sent across the park, tables were overturned. I was at the dance canopy behind one of the DJs, holding on to a pole, like a stripper, trying to keep it from blowing away. Had to let go. The microburst totally devastated the events, and it was then I knew that God really did hate us. The aftermath was ugly. Lesbians in ripped flannel, drag queens with smeared makeup, and jockstraps and cockrings just lying about in the rubble.

Then the cops and park security came through and started throwing everybody out. We asked them about our beer tickets. They said, "Too bad. Get out." We've boycotted every year since.

happydude45: That's what the Texas State Fair has always done. No big deal.


Another example of Intelligent design in Texas. It is easy to see why Texans don't believe in evolution...It skipped most of them....

Pinner: Because the min. wage food vendor/methheads steal cash.
That's why.


The fairground/fair board/ state wants to make sure they get a percentage of sales. That's what its about, not employee theft, pinhead.
