It’s not quite girls on sheep…

Monday, September 14th, 2009

The Alabama State Fair starts this weekend. It’s sure to be a chance to see a unique segment of humanity, while offering the opportunity to sample such culinary delights as roasted corn and deep-fried Twinkies. But there’s one thing the organizers do NOT want you to miss. Indeed, it’s been mentioned in every fair advertisement I’ve seen or heard. (This makes someone in broadcasting take notice. When an entity has the opportunity for multiple ads, the usual strategy is to feature different points in the different ads.) The people at the fair don’t want you to leave without witnessing the spectacle of monkeys riding dogs. What could be any more all-American than spider monkeys dressed up and plopped on the back of a flea-bitten pooch?

Some of you reading this may not be near Pelham, where the fair is held- or may not have plans to go to the fair. Never fear, you will not miss this amazing attraction. All you have to do is play the video below….if you dare.
