Best Cock

When I think of the fair, I always think of an upset stomach. That is because I usually gorge myself on fried foods and fair rides and by the end of the day I am sticky, shaken, belly achin', coated in a layer of dust and grease, adorned with cow poop on my shoe and a new skull ring on my finger. These are just a few of the reasons why, I LOVE THE FAIR!

This year was no different only I added some vlogging and minor whiplash to the fun (thanks Tornado - see above!). Additionally, there is my yearly favorite photo op, the contest for Best Cock.

Molly cast her vote for the handsome cock featured below - such lovely three-tone plumage.

My vote is for the fellow below, our own Rusty Dewees, AKA The Logger who, in case you did not know, has published a book AND sells onesies and thongs as well.

Rusty said he would be happy to enter the Best Cock contest and the Poultry Experts, who assured me that they are not foul-mouthed but using the correct terminology, welcomed Rusty to come on down and enter the contest. I have no doubt that he could give those cocks a run for their cockadoodledoos.

In other news, the first day of the Champlain Valley Fair was a smashing, only slightly soaking, success and you can get a whiff of fair folly this week on Stuck in Vermont and find out WHO is the Supreme Grand Champion Cow - and no, it is NOT me!

YAY! I heart cocks. I wonder how can we find out who won Best Cock? Maybe Mistress Maeve should have her own BC award every year.

I concur...one of the best parts of living here in the sticks are the county fairs! I went to two this past week and am looking for more...

One thing I really miss about growing up in Oklahoma are the county and state fairs. Hey, I'm a geek at heart.

Molly, that needs to be a t-shirt slogan as I, too, HEART COCKS. We gotta get MM on this one. She should hand out the ribbon and wear a naughty outfit - what a photo op!

Jill and Gregg - I wish you guys were here to partake in our little taste of county fair. It really is the very best part of summer - luckily, it'll take me till winter to wash it offa me! ;)

Herb - It is not too late, they don't hand out the awards until Wed. You could still, erhm, ahem, come from behind!

Hmmm, I'm thinking Sky and I could have a "Best Chick" contest right in his backyard.

The chickies are HUGE, btw. And redheads! (Just like their Mommy.) But we've just discovered that Rosie the duck is a boy.
