Allen County 4-H Fair Fashion Parade! (The Mostly Hot Guys With Hot Hair Edition)

Two people-watching events back to back? Well, I guess it would be three, if you include PrideFest. However, since I had to work the weekend, except Friday evening, I had to make a choice. And I chose the fair because where else can you drive 15 minutes and see livestock without having to drive out to a farm? Unfortunately, I didn't have my phone charger cord with me and my phone pooped out sooner than I did. But I think I got some interesting photos. I will say the ride operators were probably the most attractive I've EVER seen in my life, with some great hair going on. Only one ride operator was in dire need of Weight Watchers and nice clothing. I wonder if he was grandfathered in, and allowed to stay slobby because of seniority? Anyway, enjoy!

I didn't know Lucky Charms could be used for hamster bedding.

Not a ride operator, but he had the hair for it.

Since there weren't really any corners for her to stand on, she got to wear one of these beauties and walk around the fairgrounds.

Also not a ride operator. But interesting hair.

I'm jealous of these fish. They live in a tank where it looks like a rave 24/7.

I'm sure this isn't street legal, but someday it will be, so you can tote your morbidly obese children and their morbidly obese friends to school so they don't have to walk two blocks.

Yes, they had a smash a car booth. From the looks of it, these cars had concrete underneath the body. Hitting them hurt you more than it did them.

The first of many interesting hair on ride operator photos. 

Not only did they look like they were parking cars for a preppy fraternity party, they actually did seem to care about doing their jobs.

And when they wore shades, it was like being at a Young Elvis convention.

Every one of these guys had a style going on (except for the older guy I told you about).

Another stylin' young gent.

Obviously having a bad hair day.

And having matching uniforms was a good idea too, although this lady looks scared. Maybe they don't have any white people where she lives.

I would have liked to exit...onto his lap!

He doesn't have a line, he has several.

A bookish ride operator.

You can't tell from this angle, but this guy was handsome. He told me he was from South Africa, and when I commented on the hair, he said, yes, everyone had a style. He's worked for this company for two years and plans to move to the states soon.

North American Midway Entertainment, I salute you for having personnel who rate a zero on the creepy scale.

Her hair probably would have gotten her in, except she's the wrong gender.

In a few years, dude. In a few years.

Peace bee with you. Get it? Bee?

These kinds of cars always remind me of me. If I were a car, I'd be the lonely piece of shit everyone hits on, literally.

Not surprisingly, spelling wasn't a strong point.

And she's buy-yi-ying the nowhere...

I bet they so wanted to break off this finger, instead of the middle one.

Way to drum up business, dude. This was late in the afternoon. Around 7 p.m. things started to pick up, as they usually do.

This bee looked like it ate a couple of children, then partially shat them out.
Don'tcha wish your boyfriend was hung. like. me? Don'tcha wish your boyfriend was big. like. me? Don'tcha?

The Best Laid Plans...

I was planning to go to the 4 H Fair tonight to do some more people-watching, but my car is in the shop.

Tee Arr Eff Fashion Parade 7-17-14 (Continued)

Here are some more pictures from my last night at the festival. I am not sure if I will get down to the festival Saturday. I put in an 11-hour day Friday, and I'm pretty tired. I may go down for one last time during the afternoon. We'll see. Anyway, on with the show!

When I saw this, I was immediately reminded of the consistency of my shit after treating myself to Food Alley.

She's probably not drunk, but she does look drunk, doesn't she?

After days of single shoes, here's a pair. Never mind that they look like they've been pooped out of one of the animals at the petting zoo--or pooped out by a ride operator.

Chicago Bucket Boy and AirGuitar Balloon Man should be in a band together.

This would make a fun gif. One shot he's good...

the next shot he's off.

Ankle-length shorts? Come ON! Props to his buddy for having shorter shorts, but geez. Why not just wear pants for God's sake? Like that leg on the right side of the photo?

Ombre hair, then ombre shoes, tonight, ombre pants. Gives kind of a new meaning to the phrase, "dipped in shit."

Another crutch person, but no cast, or high-tech foam boot. What gives? Ifs your foot REALLY broken, or are you faking it to get sympathy?

If you've ever wanted to see a kid wearing sunglasses lying on the sidewalk at Three Rivers Festival, this was your year.

After seeing dozens of porta potties at the festival, and trying to touch as little as possible in them, this fully-functional sink was like a beacon of cleanliness in a shit-filled world.

Steamed buns may not sound appetizing, but relax. That shirt is advertising Coney Island in downtown Fort Wayne. There are few other places in the Fort where you can spend $5 and be full.

I don't think he was officially sanctioned as part of TRF, but that's what makes the festival great. Thousands of people, and you never know who you'll meet or who is going to show up. Maybe next year I'll sit on a corner and complain for tips.

Segways are too hard to keep your balance on, so they added a wheel. In 50 years, most of the population will be morbidly obese, because everyone will be riding their LaziMobiles.

Wacky-waving inflatable arm flailing tube men! Wacky-waving inflatable arm flailing tube men! Wacky-waving inflatable arm flailing tube men! Yeah, I know it's not original, but neither is Family Guy.

Sick of the festival yet? This girl is.

Tee Arr Eff Fashion Parade 7-17-14

Tonight was my last night at the festival, because I have to work at one of my four part-time jobs tomorrow night. I regret not asking for the last two nights of TRF off, but I thought that might be pushing it to have two weekends off in a row. I had the opening Friday/Saturday off because of the concerts I wanted to attend.

Anyway, I got several pictures tonight, and will post the rest of them soon, probably late Friday night/Saturday morning, or perhaps late Saturday night. If I spoke to you and told you you'd be appearing on the blog, your picture will be uploaded on the site very soon!

I had a really good time people-watching and getting pictures. I regret that some shots didn't turn out as sharp as I wanted, and I didn't get a chance to get a better picture of "Blow for a Buck" lady again.

Anyway, if you like this feature, let me know. I'm hoping to eventually attend more events, so I can expand Fashion Parade to other festivals/stuff going on.

This woman had the prettiest hair--long, black and silky--but you wouldn't know it from this angle.

The key is to lean back.....

too late.

In real life, you can't grab the bull's ass and expect to hang on.

And it doesn't work on the fake bull, either.

I can't wait until some guy tattoos a nose and lips on the back of his head, then wears his sunglasses like this. Until that happens, I'll have to be satisfied with this.




Is it me, or are hipsters getting younger all the time?

Her shirt said, "Jesus Satisfies" and there's a Biblical reference, but I can't imagine the Bible would actually say, "Jesus Satisfies." It sounds too much like a Snickers ad.

It's odd to see women of this age wearing shirts that say "Legit." Is she truly, "too legit to quit," or is she merely telling the world her parents were married when she was born?
