4-the number of quoteable quotes I came away from the fair with:
1. "My wife just got out of the psych ward at the hospital. Can she meet Miranda?"
2. "Can you get my bra back? it still has the tags on it."
3. "Emptying trash cans isn't brain science."
4. "I just got out of jail and I'm violating my parole to be here. Can you please tell the band to dedicate a song to my dead brother?"
