    Mrs. Turtleboy dragged me down to the Big E a couple years ago and we documented it for the world to see. I promised I’d never go there again and after seeing this post from the Springfield Police Department today, I feel 1,000% validated:


    Look at all these morons lined up to go to the worst place on earth:

    Some people take the bus in from the middle of nowhere. And they get a little excited when they get closer. Just for the record, the Big E is not in Worcester:

    Anyway, the Big E is the worst place on earth. I stand by that. I have no idea why millions of people flock to this place and pay $15 for the right to walk around and have people offer to sell you a bunch of stuff you don’t want. But they do, and it is fantastic people watching. Should we go back next weekend? Could be interesting.

      I love when you review places and events with pictures and one liners, one of my favorite blogs. Makes me feel upper class.

    2. Mediocrity


      We went Saturday. Left early and no traffic delays (except for accident on Pike). Great parking spot. Leaving was a breeze. Had some amazing food. Other than food, our only purchase was a Swiss flag. It’s fun to people watch, tho.

    3. Bill P.


      Went there about 6 years ago. A colossal waste of time, and money. I actually felt sick that I’d gone.

    4. Beej


      I love you, TB, but I hate your contempt for the Big E! I’ve been going every year since I was just a little turtle-rider, and look forward to it every year for the food, beer, concerts, shows, and people watching!

    5. Skeeter


      I always wanted to go there since I was a kid. I finally ended up going back in 2014. I was so disillusioned. Boring as fuck. I couldn’t wait to get out of there. It was way too crowded. I’ll never go again.

      $100 bucks says there was some a-hole trying to get people to sign up for DirecTV. Another $100 says there was another one trying to sell windows.

    6. Rational person


      Thank you for reminding me why I stopped going to the Big E. The big yellow slide just isn’t worth it anymore.

    7. Abby


      Come on TB, make your wife happy. Think of all the points youd earn taking her!

    8. LOL


      Everyone says its great for people watching. Here’s a tip: go to Wal mart. There’s less traffic and you can see the same flannel shirt wearing burn outs.

      1. Wal-Mart Customer Service


        Lots of bellies hanging over and tons of plumber crack too.

      The kangaroo in the cage says “fuck the big e, go to king Richards faire instead.”

    10. dave


      Hell of a lot more interesting people at King Richard’s Fair.

      1. FiestyLawyerLady


        That’s crazy. I was gone for the weekend in that area and I waited a long time in traffic to pass by that location. I looked it up since I read the sign and was interested. It actually seems pretty cool lol….. It better be decent, it was pricey in my opinion. Maybe next year.

        1. BobnMic


          Fuck off asshole. Haven’t you caused enough trouble in here in just this last 5 months? You single-handedly ruined this blog’s comments. All the fun people vanished. Really nice job you fucking loser. Go take a pill you fucking druggie and leave here while we still have something left…

    11. Publius


      Funny post. But at end of day if you don’t like the Big E you don’t go. same for King King Richards Faire, unless your a kid just an expensive waste of time.
