Unenthused Fairgoers or is it the Pictures?

Pictures are worth a 1000 words as the worn expression goes. But nah, not always. Sometimes they’re actually worth about 20. Sifting through these WCP pictures from the Arlington County Fair makes a person want to avoid the fairgrounds entirely.

As freelancer Eddie Scarry put it, “I know people without fingers that could take a better picture.”

To be sure, aside from meaningless balloons and people who look like they’d prefer to die rather than be there, a few photographs jump out. There’s the one that could depict pedophilia — simply frightening. There’s also a shot of a pig and even he looks to be saying, “Seriously? What are you doing down here shooting your lens up my brother’s rump?”
