TXTing contest winners

We have to say, we were very impressed with the “text-pertise” of our Deep Fried blog readers! Congrats to all of our commenters for their awesome entries (check them out in the comments link below this blog entry!):


Our favorites from the entries:

DCShadows31’s “gr8 f%d” (great food)

dodgerfan4399’s “dEp frYd =’s” (deep fried Oreos…the equal sign’s space in the middle stands for the creme filling, with the two lines acting as the cookie)

SugarWayne’s “frYd $” (fried dough)

Holly’s “DIS wiL b my ~:oz 1st tym” (This will be my baby’s first time…tilt your head to the left to see the baby’s single curl and pacifier)

Thanks to all of you for participating on our first contest on here! E-mail me your name and address at karlie.justus@ncmail.net and you will be the very first owners of our colorful new State Fair T-shirts. You may remember the neon tie-dye design shirts from last year that Jared the Subway Guy is signing in the pic above. INSIDE SCOOP ALERT: This year’s will also be tie-dye, but with green and purple fading into a tie-dye band around the chest. And, of course, the “Take Time for a Great Time” Fair logo in the middle of it all. Congrats!!

Stay tuned for more txting competition info…but be sure you practice safe txting, unlike the subjects of this W-S Journal story!

About Cotton Candy

Karlie Justus - blogged for the 2008 / 2009 N.C. State Fairs. This is her bio from 2009: When I'm not blogging for the N.C. State Fair, I go by Karlie Justus--but Cotton Candy suits me just fine. My earliest memories of the Fair are of the times my parents would bring my brother and I up from Asheville, N.C. for a double dose of the Fair and a N.C. State football game. Fast-forward two decades later, and I'm a public information officer for the deep fried celebration whose must-see Fair attractions include the giant pumpkins, decorated cakes and deep fried Oreos.
