Trust me, that statement is no exaggeration.

No funnell cakes though. What the heck is a funnell cake?
Ever had a beaver tail in Ottawa? Same kind of thing

Best show at the Del Mar Fair this year was Barry Manilow. I don't even like him but we recognized every single song from our balcony and the crowd loved him. Pink was OK, a little short, and I was surprised that REO Speedwagon is still touring. The fireworks were good but Rancho Santa Fe and La Jolla were better.

RadioA-man: I heard about those! What doesn't a Southern cook batter and deep fry? Makes me think of Elvis's fav: fried PBJ sandwiches. Or was it PB and Banana? Either way it all is way too sweet for me.

Aaaah. Yes, I've had them, in the market. I was only there during daylight hours, honest!

Isn't "beaver tail" a redundant phrase?

Default Now we're talking!

I am soooo happy. Y'all are finally figuring this out. Now, let me give you just a few more examples for posterity.

"I studied over 400 hours for this stupid exam, but then they asked questions that were poorly worded and not even covered by the syllabus. So I got a lousy five!" That's not fair.

Ferris wheels, calf-roping, Bertha the Bull (or would Bertha be a heffer?), and pie-eating contests. That's the fair.

"I have a friend who went into data mining. He makes more than I do, and he doesn't even have to take these stupid exams. He spends every night with a different beautiful woman. I spend every night with Newton Bowers and Ruth E. Salzmann." That's not fair.

Giant sculptures made of butter, live concerts, turkey legs, and cowchip throwing contests. That's the fair.

"Milton Friedman couldn't even pass these actuarial exams. They are chasing out the best and brightest from our profession because of these stupid exams, which really only serve as a stupid barrier to entry anyway!" That's not fair.

Throwing rings around pop bottles, carney's with tatoos, and paying two dollars to see a bearded lady and a midget. That's the fair.

Regards,

Prakash



P.S. Forget about Elvis .... Guitar Wolf is King!!!

This wise man from Calcutta by the name of Prakash V. Naor offered some sage advice for you kids.

It's a mystery to me why he has been banned.

Perhaps he freaked out.

Regards,

Opi
