California Offers To Host Firemen’s Fair Next Year In Hopes Of Attracting Rain

Sacramento, CA – In a bold move, drought-stricken California has offered the Thibodaux Volunteer Fire Department  $800,000 to host next year’s Firemen’s Fair.

The Golden State extended this generous offer in hopes of utilizing the scientific phenomenon that seems to attract rain to the annual function. Violent thunderstorms and torrential rainfall seem to be virtually guaranteed once the funnel cakes hit the grease.

By hosting the fair, experts predict California stands to gain an extra six inches of rain next year, which would tremendously help the arid wasteland replenish its dwindling water table.

The California fair would remain exactly the same…except for the food: Cajun staples like boudin, jambalaya, and gumbo will be replaced with a variety of berries, leaves, and gluten-free twigs.

Also, Wayne Toups was asked to headline the West Coast fair. It would be his first performance in California since the early 90’s when he played drums for a band called Zack Attack.

NOTE: Fire Department officials note that historically speaking, most fair weekends have not had rain; however, wet socks tend to stick in one’s memory longer than dry ones.

  1. Maybe someone can clarify a question that I am wondering about. If the Thibodaux Volunteer Fire Department goes to California to host the California Fireman’s Fair, is anyone going to be left in Thibodaux to fight a fire, or fires, if one or more should occur? Is there a Thibodaux Fire Department? Wouldn’t it be necessary for Thibodaux to be left defenseless against fires in order to insure that California will get the rain they so desperately need? It seems that unless Thibodaux is left defenseless against fires, then it would be fraudulent for the Thibodaux Volunteer Fire Department to go to California. Am I overthinking this? Honestly, I am not trying to start any trouble!

      • I am not serious.

        Okay, I lied. I am serious. Listen, Jay, there is a dynamic to these things, call it “nature’s synergy,” if you will. California can’t just get the rain they need because the Thibodaux Volunteer Fire Department goes to California to host the California Fireman’s Fair. There has to be some risk involved, i.e., the City of Thibodaux risks burning to the ground in order for the Thibodaux Volunteer Fire Department to get $800,000. I don’t mean to be morbid but the Thibodaux Volunteer Fire Department can’t just “up and run” to California to make a pile of cash and not expect that there might be serious repercussions. If I was a resident of Thibodaux, I think I’d try to get a cut of that $800,000! Again, I don’t mean to start any trouble.
