Mullet – The Fish – The Festival

by Angie [A Whole Lot of Nothing] on October 21, 2007

in Pictures,WTF?

I survived. My children are scarred for life.

OK – I’m over exaggerating, but they did not enjoy themselves. I’m not sure if it was the crazy clown show that is the same as when I saw it at their age (seriously – same costumes and everything) or all the dirt they breathed in. But my girls are suburban sprawl city folk.

I will deliver on my promise of shocking pictures; however, I did not spot the quintessential (thanks spell check!) Mr. & Mrs. Niceville couple, but I have the pièce de résistance of redneckiness below.

Along the way in my quest for the picture, I captured some other amazing finds.

Eat More Mullet

Yes – eat more mullet. And I did. Delish with baked beans, cheese grits, hush puppies, and a cold Coke.

Fried Oreos Fried Twinkies

Funnel Cakes, Fried Oreos, and Fried Twinkies. What could be better? I didn’t have an Oreo, but I SOOO wanted one. I didn’t want to hear about it from my dad (you know, work out instead of watching America’s Next Top Model), so I’ll just imagine it was tasty. The Twinkie? I don’t like them plain, so fried might be good.

The Funnel Cake, however, was eaten. Unfortunately, we had our Funnel Cake too early. Just up the row from the stand above, is THIS:

Funnel Cake Toppings

Friggin toppings for FUNNEL CAKES??? Who’dathunk?? Peanut butter and chocolate, caramel apples and cinnamon, strawberries, chocolate syrup, and the ever-popular loads o’ powdered sugar.

After scouring the festival for my title couple in vain, I discovered one of sciences great anomalies.

I discovered the elusive Redneck Pregnant Man.

Pregnant Man

In case you’re wondering, below is our winning photo from the Mr. & Mrs. Niceville photo tour from 2005.

Notice the belly shirt on Mrs. with cigarettes in hand, the rebel flag on Grandpa’s snazzy vest, and the ever-important mullet hairdo on Mr.

LOL!!! Looks like he’s expecting twins. Or maybe triplets. I’m sorry you didn’t find your quintessential redneck couple. Guess you’ll just have to go back next year. And those funnel cakes – MMMMmmmmmmmmmmmmmm!

OMG, hilarious! Thanks for exposing us to the total Crackerness around you!!

Loves it!

I would have so had to go have a second funnel cake with a topping! Mmm, mmm! Looks like you had a fun day… totally typical to the fairs I went to as a kid back in hickville! 🙂


4 Michelle October 22, 2007 at 10:42 am

Looks like fun! Kinda reminds me of the town I live in 🙂

Mmm, funnel cakes. Try and explain that to a 5 year old. Love Mr. & Mrs. Niceville ’05. I want a belly shirt just like that. Now I have a craving for funnel cakes..that might be a problem.

I think the one guy had a few too many of them there fried twinkies!


7 Melinda October 22, 2007 at 3:14 pm

Too funny! I would love to have seen this live. All that fried stuff though, whew, that would have sent me into cardiac arrest! Yum, yum.

I would have done what any decent self-serving human being would do, and I would have eaten ANOTHER (smothered) funnel cake. Travesty not to, really!

I’m dying over here. The preggo redneck and the mullets on those rebels….omg, I’m dying!!


9 Lela October 22, 2007 at 6:40 pm

Hahaha! I noticed it almost looks like she’s bellowing something to someone on the other side of the fairgrounds!

OHHHHHH the fried Oreo’s are soooooooooo good. We have them at our State Fair and they are worth “cheating”!!! (on your diet, of course!)

Those are some GREAT pics… I am LMAO!!!!


11 Natalie October 22, 2007 at 11:01 pm

Fried oreos? Wow! Love the pregnant man…too funny!


12 Valarie October 23, 2007 at 8:18 am

Love your blog! This was so funny! I would have totally just eaten another funnelcake! You could have done an extra fast-paced lap around the festival to look for your redneck couple to work it off! My husband just about shot milk out of his nose when he saw the preggo redneck. Too funny.

Elusive redneck pregnant man: “I gotta git me sum of those there them fried Snickers they had at the last shin dig!”

Redneck Mrs. to her son across the way: “Dale Jr., I said git over here before yur stollen!”

The photo was good, the caption you wrote was better, but what would have put it over the top was the pregnant man smoking a cigarette, combing his mullet, and wearing the Mrs. tummy shirt.

I read my comment and it sounded like I was saying for reals that this could be better. But it couldn’t! I laughed so hard…this was great!


15 Jennifer October 23, 2007 at 9:52 pm

Man – peanut butter and chocolate funnel cake. I wonder if the hospital has that for when I go and have this baby, so that I can order one. That sounds like something I could go for – just having a baby, then munching on a PB & chocolate funnel cake…. *sigh* I think I am going to go dream about that now, LOL.

Oh my goodness. My husband lived in Niceville as a young boy. We lived there 9 years after we were married and now live only 20 minutes away. I must laugh with you. The festival is a huge deal to most…not us. Not sure exactl where you travleled from…but bless you either way!!!!! Too funny! 🙂

Did you visit my little town to get those pictures? I think I know a couple of those people!! Just kidding. I love the treats, funnel cakes are great with any topping!!! Not healthy but they sure are good!! (Sound redneck enough?)

Wow enjoyed your pics. We live in BC and some of the fairs around here are just like that. At the Interior Provincial Exhibition they serve what are called “Saddle Blankets ” same idea as a funnel cake served the same way but its just a 7 inch fried bread/doughnut thing.tastes great but has a million calories. Still lol

Awful belly, pregnant bellies much more prettier. Unusual hobby you have find Redneck people, but your pics so lively and your description so funny, that I enjoy it.
Cakes look very testy.
