Today's comment of the day forged its way over hill, dale, and the Atlantic Ocean, all to bring us this report on the sorry state of Britain's carnivals.

Commenter finickity reveals all in response to today's post on state fair foods:

I have to say as a Brit it's rare to find interesting food at a fair, it's normally just a burger van and a sweet stall. I have to say though things are changing and now first job is to find out if there is a churros stall and AQUIRE. Mmmmmm, churros, with sugar and cinnamon.

I really wanted to try a corn dog when I was in NY, but didnt spot a seller. i also seriously regret not getting cannoli when I had the chance.

Good excuse to come back!

A burger van and a sweet stall. Sigh.
