In Line For Weigh In
At the front of this line the pigs will be sent down a narrow chute to the official fair scale.
That scale is the nemesis of every fair kid. To get your pig in the fair, it must weigh between 225 and 275 pounds. As you wait in line, you can hear the chatter regarding the scales accuracy.
"My pig weighed 260 pounds at the house last night, the fair scale just weighed her at 245 pounds!"
"The scales are weighing low this year."
"The scales are weighing high this year."
Nervous chatter as you approach the moment of truth.
