Farmersâ?? Market Anniversary Celebration

Veggies and soaps and honey so sweet
Sold to you out on the street.

We hope this isnâ??t your brother weâ??ve come to see.
Point out your baldness and lifeâ??s little foibles
Then play with some oversized version of toys.
We all came to get wet and covered in goop.
And if comedy has progressed in the last 20 years, weâ??ve been out of the loop.(8 p.m. Friday at the
