Lending a Yelping thumb

Yelp is more than a place to find reviews of local businesses. It has become a window into our communities that can, at times, be helpful. It also provides perspective ranging from hilarious to inane.

Take the reviews of the Minnesota State Fair as an example:

Eat, Gawk, Repeat.”

“It is not the place to count calories, worry about the waistline, try to be posh or be a snob. Just relax and enjoy.”

“Just like Farmville only in real life.”

“The state fair is like a Walmart on acid — awesome people watching…”

“…too smelly.”

Those yucksters over at Funny or Die! have turned the inane side of Yelp into comedy gold.
