Chigger Fun

Earlier this month I posted a sign for the Chigger Festival that's held every fall in Cooper, TX. My kids and I went there this morning, and here are some of the signs and ads we saw:

As you might expect, food vendors were prominent, and I think they outnumbered the other sellers. Here's one that was peddling fried food. The little gnarled Gabby Hayes-type figure disturbed my daughter.
They're right. My momma always did feed us by cooking dinner on a stick over a campfire.

I like the name of this vendor. I never did find out which one was Pink.
Try saying that three times fast.

Someone from the Parks Department--Cooper Lake is a big tourist attraction in the area--gave my daughter a coloring book produced by the U.S. Coast Guard:
Doesn't he have his own show on PBS?

As you would expect in Texas, the Republican Party had one of the largest tables at the festival.
So I guess if the things in this list pertain to you, you must be a Republican. Rick Perry has decreed it.

And not to be outdone, the Democratic Party had their own table. In fact, a table is about all they had at the Chigger Festival.
I'm not sure who these two guys are sitting behind the "display," but this tells you a little something about the state of liberalism in the Lone Star State.

Welcome to Texas!
