zeppoles at San Gennaro Feast

Once again I was disappointed by the zeppoles at the Feast. I don't know why I keep punishing myself like this. I looked for a stand that was making them fresh out of the oil, which very few were (most had been sitting around), finally found such a stand off Mulberry, and asked for the fresh ones. They still came out uncooked inside. Why do they have to make them so darn big? It's harder to cook well and through. Do they think that bigger is better? When I was a kid, they used to be smaller and much better. Since the guy was making them, maybe I should have asked for them well-done. I give up.
