Only in Bama...

In case you didn't know, the Alabama State Fair in Mobile every September is a serious destination. The school year has just started, and one of the biggest nights of the new year academic calendar is spent with your friend eating elephant ears, letting scary men guess your weight, riding the Tilt-a-Whirl, and listening to Southern Rock and Bluegrass bands like Alabama and Leftover Salmon. The fair's about as see-and-be-seen an event as Bama's got. Call it the Local 16 of Mobile.

Well, for those of us who grew up truly understanding Charlotte's Web, we can now apply for a free wedding at the fair. I'm not joking. The fair is such a big deal that people are actually going to write an essay about why they want to get married at the Alabama State Fair. I'm guessing that the bridal party won't have many teeth and that the bride will choose a mini-wedding dress. Here's the link if anyone wants to apply?
