Random Thought

As I was looking through the Morning News, I noticed a story of artist Sharon BuMann who (and I am not making this up) is creating an 800 pound sculpture of Elvis Presley - made out of butter - which will be displayed at this year's State Fair of Texas. The display will also include a sculpture of a hound dog (also made out of butter). This made two questions pass through my odd brain: (1) What did the line "you ain't never caught a rabbit and you ain't no friend of mine" mean in that Elvis song? and (2) how much longer will the public be interested in a "state fair"?

I can answer the second question...interest will be there as long as the great corn dog myth continues.

I think State Fairs will be around for a long time. Where else can you get just great junk food? The fairs up North are terrific. Demolition Derbys, French Waffles Donkey Basketball, Cotton Candy, Dunk Tanks, the best french fries in the world. The livestock and horse races and tractor pulls are all great. You just don't get that down here. I really miss that.

My odd brain has a question...

How in this "Texas heat" are the statues made of butter not going to melt?!

I think she'll have to freeze her butt-er off.

Hound Dog - I think if a hound dog can't even hunt and catch anything, he's not "man's best friend?" It's Elvis - who cares what it means???

This is a criptic message from Elvis warning of the pending Katrina Hurricane: "you ain't never caught a rabbit and you ain't no friend of mine!
