Trying to think of a basketball/dick pun but I'm empty.

"He takes it to the hole!" Eh. Maybe after my morning screwdriver.

If you have a deep fryer at home, may I suggest deep fried jello? Just make some jello, put it on a stick, and drop it in the hot oil for a minute or so.

They're doing this here at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds... $20 per car (normal admission is like $12 person) to drive through, and both weekends sold out.

/pop-ups around town too

The county fair here in San Diego got cancelled as well. So they are doing a drive thru food fair each weekend with vendors who would have been at the fair. Its been going for several weekends and they also throw in two free tickets to the fair next year as well.

The competitors are still going to the state fair here but no general public.

I'm all for doing everything we can to keep businesses going, and I'll happily support small family businesses, but if your whole shtick is deep-fried deep fry oil on a stick maybe the current situation is for the best.

Would Minnesotans riot if they can't get their Sweet Martha's cookie?

Unlikely. I mean, they're good cookies, and we tote around an overpriced bucket for most of the day every time we go, but... I'm not sure that... um...
Yeah. They'll riot.

/Sweet Martha's unbaked cookie dough is also available in the grocery frozen/dairy section.
