Chicken Fried Bacon is the winner

The State Fair is less than a month away, so it's time for the Big Tex Choice Awards, which annually awards the person who takes a normal food and deep fries it. This year's winner: Chicken Fried Bacon.

I know the fair is about having a good time and not worrying about a diet, but sometimes too much grease is disgusting. Some of the other entries were deep fried s’mores, fried chocolate truffles and a fried banana split.

Some of the other (unconfirmed) entries:

*Fried Peanut Butter and Jelly drenched in Fried Kool-Aid

*Deep-Fried French Toast with Deeper-Fried Syrup

*That former crispy food on a stick now even crispier and stuck on a double-fried french fry with gravy

*Heart attack in a waffle cone

*Deep-Fried Midway Tickets

In a few days, the State Fair Web site has a way to search for food at the fair. Categories will nclude French food, Cajun food and Asian food, but shouldn't there be one for miscellaneous grease?

Or how about one for most unneccesary fried food? The fair always has a few of those each year, and all that grease doesn't sit well if you take on one of the wilder rides.

"Hooooowdy fooooolks ... welcome to the State Fair of Texas ... my stomach hurts."
