Parish Fair Protips For 40+ Dads

  1. Ferris Wheels and kilts are a bad combination, especially for the folks standing directly in front of the Ferris Wheel.
  2. Do not get on the Tilt A Whirl with your daughter after eating a corndog and fried shrimp on a stick.

  4. In fact, just say no to the damned Tilt A Whirl altogether.
