Big Blogger 2, Task 7, Sideshow Slyshow

Our Big Blogger 2 challenge this week is to devise a sideshow for
The Cyber Big Top Circus. Here are Big Blogger's instructions:


"Cyberhousemates have to design their own sideshow attraction,
and popping balls into the mouths of head turning clowns has been
done to death. We want attractions that will keep people spending
their money.

To keep you all hyped up, each Cyberhousemate will be given
double rations of Fairyfloss and Dagwood Dogs until the end of
the week."

I don't know exactly what Big Blogger is feeding us, but since I
don't feel like flitting around sprinkling pixie dust and waving a
wand, or cleaning my teeth with a piece of twine, I think the
Fairyfloss is good ol' redneck Cotton Candy. The Dagwood Dog?
Perhaps a Footlong Hot Dog. Anyhoo, enough of this gorging on
food that I can't identify, and on with the show! The Sideshow
Slyshow, that is!

Ahh...a game of skill that people
can't resist:

Bobbing For Fish

Since we installed a new Hillbilly Fish Pond, the old Redneck Fish
Pond has been lying fallow. Now it can travel with the Cyber Big
Top and earn its keep. Stocked with Wal*Mart goldfish that will
grown to amazing proportions if the fish are fed mass quantities of
food thrice a day, the Cyber Big Top Bobbing For Fish game will
provide enough income to support the Cyberhousemates' costly
Cabana-Boy habit. And if it doesn't, those fish can provide dinner.
Disclaimer: Cat pictured in photo is not a part of the game.
bobbing for cats, and no using of cat to bob for your fish.

Victims...err...CUSTOMERS will pay $2.00 for one bob in the
Fish Pond, or 3 bobs for $5.00. They are not allowed to use their
hands or any other appendages. Only mouth-bobbing is permitted.
Everyone's a winner, folks. Everyone who catches a fish in his
mouth. The fish are marked with various prizes, from small to
extravagant. Some of the items you are playing for are:

The carcass of Mr. Kickball.

A horse's a$$.

An authentic Hillbilly Mom

A House-Possum.

Hillbilly Mom's old outhouse.

The Royal Crown of Beclakia.
Nerdish citizen not included.

Good luck to all.

Way cool Hillbilly Mom...but I have to ask? Who is bob and can I take him home? Would there be three of him realy? Or is he one of triplets? I would like to go for the prize of the Cow Hat and perhaps the Outdoor Dunny...I will send the boys of the house out to use it as I am sick of them playing "fireman's hose" in the toilet here. LOL.
The bob game sounds like fun. :)

This Is Big Blogger.

Your tent has been pitched, and you are now open for business.

For your information, a Dagwood Dog is a hotdog dipped in batter then deep fried. It is usually served on a stick, which is usually tastier than the "food". Tomato Sauce is an optional extra.
I am glad you worked out what Fairy Floss is though.

I said something very similar this morning, "any new Victims ummm I mean new employees for new employee training?" Lambs to the slaughter.

Ain't that ALWAYS THE WAY.
(your mileage may vary too!)

That's a swanky T-Shirt there. Does it come in a Coors Light version? How about a version on a Wife-Beater for all the HHs out there?

If you take Bob, you'll have to take his loyal non-sexual life partner, Carl. They are a team. You may have the Cow Hat IF you catch the smallest, tiniest, fish marked "Royal Crown of Beclakia" in your mouth, and then steal Rebecca's crown. The Outhouse? We really used to use it, before we built the Mansion. We just had the barn here, and used to have hayrides and cookouts.

Big Blogger,
That is what we call a CORNDOG. Sonic makes them. They are my youngest son's favorite item. He loves them with ketchup, though I believe mustard it the more common condiment.

You will go far, with your knowledge of fine print and ad-speak.

I don't know about the Coors Light version. Rebecca designed the T-shirt without my knowledge. I'm not sure, but that might have been the Archduke Ferdinand of the whole Hillmomba-Beclakia conflict. You see, Rebecca stole my soul and put it on a T-shirt to jumpstart her Beclakian economy. I'm getting worked up all over again. Thank the Gummi Mary that I'm locked up in the Cyberhouse and can't mobilize my troops.

HH is not partial to the Wife-Beater. When I met him, he wore brown(!) pocket T-shirts that he got from a friend who worked at a funeral home. Yes. He wore T-shirts, briefs, and socks meant for corpses. That karma is gonna catch up to him one day. Or perhaps I ALREADY HAVE!!!

There's nothing like a corndog from Sonic. With mustard. Kady eats her with ketchup and that is just wrong.

I think the wife-beater t-shirt should definitely be an option. All good rednecks wear 'em. Well, I personally don't and I'm a good redneck, but my husband wears 'em! (Like anyone's shocked about that.)

Ketchup. Crack for the young 'uns. Wrong for corn dogs. Wrong for hot dogs. Wrong for bologna.
