Another county fair has come and gone.
Since we're a small, rural county, our county fair is a small rural county fair (although people kept telling us this year how much bigger it used to be). I hope rural county fairs aren't doomed by "progress" and technology.
The entertainment this year (besides college rodeo and bull riding) consisted of a few bands, an "Ultimate Elvis Tribute," a "comic unicyclist," and "Alfy's World of Robotic Puppets." That one, frankly, had me a little worried. As Dwight points out on The Office (which should have won more Emmys), you don't want robots too big because they might turn on you, and you should keep them on extension cords so they can't chase you.
Alfy's weren't life-sized (although his pig was close) but no extension cords--and wheels, so they could chase you all over the place, had they gone berserk.
Here's one of them. And yes, they talk, too.
