I had a hard time coming up with something for this because I feel like I used up all my “carnival” themed jokes last year on the “Mummy Monday” and “Carnival Creeps” days of Drawlloween 2016. I already made fun of the food, carnies, rides and sideshow, leaving only the games of chance, I suppose, to skewer.
Not coming up with a good idea for ring toss or stacked milk bottles, I settled for the “carnage” of the poor eggs who were undiscerning enough to get on a ride called The Scrambler (actually my favorite ride at these kinds of places).
For “Carnival Creeps” I went with a trio and instead of the stereotypical “evil clown” I just went with a slightly creepy one with a “Free Hugs” sign, along with the type of carny guy running the poorly-inspected ride that makes most stand-up comic’s routines and lastly, the lady serving the unhealthy, fried everything that you find in most state fairs.

This year, I’m trying to combine ALL the double-page spreads, so tomorrow’s topic will have to be added to this scene. Stay tuned.
