Talkin' Trash

We were born on the wrong side of the tracks in Yahoo, Texas, and have spent every subsequent day trying to live it down. We drink wine, appreciate art, have offspring who say “please” and “thank you,” and drive a girlie-man hybrid car to help the environment. For 49 weeks a year, we’re golden. Then the Arizona Exposition & State Fair comes back around, and we start talkin’ shit like “dang” and “y’all” and scratchin’ our balls a lot.

Dang, y’all, why fight it? We’ve all got a little trash in the compactor, so let your genetic detritus shine forth daily (’ceptin’ Mondays) through November 8 at the Fairgrounds. This week’s white-trash highlights include:

The Black Crowes at The Vet, tonight at 7.

Figure 8 Racing, 7 nightly Friday through Sunday.

Village Inn Pie Eating Contest, 1 p.m. Saturday.

NWA Lucha Libre Wrestling Showcase, 5 p.m. Sunday.

Paul Bunyan Lumberjack Show, daily.

And don’t forget the Fair food; this year’s “extreme” vittles include chocolate-covered bacon, grasshoppers on a stick, and deep-fried tiramisu.

Tuesdays-Sundays. Starts: Oct. 22. Continues through Oct. 28, 2009
