John Les brings a cardboard cutout of El Gordo along with him for all public appearances. When he needs the big guns, he also pulls out the Thumbs Up of Approval-sporting Barry Penner cutout. When that thing is set up, it’s like John Les doesn’t even have to be there!

FFair103

Barry Penner gives the Thumbs Up Of Approval (or the ‘Thumbs Up’ Of Approval, as it seems) to the Agassiz Fall Fair, fields, tractors, and plowing! He’s also really impressed that it’s the 103rd Fall Fair. He had this thing pegged to fizzle out somewhere around 102. Still, he’s happy to be wrong if it means he gets to ride his tractor around again!

SOURCE – Agassiz-Harrison Observer (I don’t know the exact date, but logic would suggest the week of the 07 Fall Fair)

Gangsta

It may appear like Barry Penner is giving an enthusiastic Thumbs Up of Approval (and half a million dollars) to generic businessmen and old-timey gangsters, but in actuality, he’s giving the Thumbs Up of Approval to the Generic Businessmen and Old-Timey Gangster Reenactment Society. They return the sentiment (but keep the money).

(In case you were wondering, members of the Generic Businessmen and Old-Timey Gangster Reenactment Society reenact being either generic businessmen or old-timey gangsters. It’s pretty fun stuff!)
