State Fair Robbery Reveals State Fair Lucre

Does anybody know what it takes to get a food stand at the State Fair? Because if this article is any indication, you can make some crazy bank over a very short period of time:

A thief distracted employees at State Fair turkey sandwich stand and made off with $20,000, police and employees said. While employees at Turkey To Go got a good look at the suspect when he came by around 6 p.m. Thursday, there were no still no arrests as of Monday. “One guy came up and bought a sandwich and what happened was he requested skin. We don’t get that very often,” owner Greg Keil said.

Also, requesting skin as a diversionary tactic? Brilliant! This dude earned his 20 grand.

    Mmmm. Skin.

    I think there’s a waiting list for State Fair booths, and it’s pretty long.
