Fried dough is a fair staple, whether it goes by the name doughboy, elephant ear, or funnel cake. At the Oregon State Fair in Salem, the Road Kill—a consistent best-seller—represents fried dough at its most abstract: deep-fried and flattened into the shape of a dead possum or rat and dressed with a variety of berry sauces and syrups to resemble oozing blood and guts.

Where: Salem, OR
When: Fair opens late August.
