Boothies

Fair

We’re not very good with money. Our accountants gnash their teeth as each promising opportunity disintegrates into a costly failure. That’s why we’re really excited about the booth we’ve been offered at the 2009 Minnesota State Fair. Anyone who’s ever been to a fair knows that you can sell anything to a chunky yokel holding his toddler on a leash. Beer mirror? Check. Giant stuffed Speedy Gonazalez? Check. No seriously, check our basement. It’s full of that crap.

In Parts I and II of our VSOP series with John Hodgman and Jonathan Coulton, we asked them to help us come up with a guaranteed moneymaker, something that none of the other booths at the fair would think of. They had some really great ideas. In fact, they had too many great ideas. We’re in love with all of them, so we need you to help us choose. Listen to Selfish Express and Faux Tog to learn more about the proposals, then vote below.

Don’t let us down, people. A lot is riding on this. Scott’s gender re-re-assignment surgery isn’t going to pay for itself.
