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..."
Those yucksters over at Funny or Die! have turned the inane side of Yelp into comedy gold.
I'm so yelping this.
