Is this a leadup to your master plan to create bacon-wrapped bratwurst-based corndogs?

The corn dog was clearly my muse for all these pictures. Or maybe it is just the muse for the entire fair.

Bear, do you remember the kid at Clemson Elementary who called himself "Master Cheese"? The same kid who walked by a tv screen with the title "Snow Dogs" on it and said to me...."Snow Dogs....kind of like Corn Dogs."

Master Cheese = Ralph Wiggum

Oddly enough, the desire for a corn dog had been following me around for months now like a stray puppy. It is surprisingly difficult to find something like a corn dog when you have a hankerin' for one. I tried to alleviate my desire with a store-bought frozen microwaveable type one (I know) but to no avail. I actually considered going to the fair for the very reason that I could finally track one down. But that didn't pan out either. Why do so few restaurants carry the corn dog these days? It makes me very sad.

Corn dogs are a lost art. The best corn dogs from my memory were from Nibils down at the Surfside Beach pier.

There was one stand at the fair that offered three different sizes of corn dogs. I got the largest size. It was great on every level. Stu next the fair is in town you must go. Or if you wait until Oktoberfest, I imagine some corn dogs could be had then too.

MMMM. Oktoberfest. Where the beer flows like sauerkraut.

I love the fair spirit, summed up as:
'Hey - I don't think THAT's ever been fried before. Let's see if we can bread it, jam in a stick, and dip it in boiling oil.'

It's that kind of inginuity keeping America ahead in the world.

(That being said, I don't get fairs, but the wife won't let me miss one. She goes for the cotton candy and goats.)

They had deep fried twinkies this year at the fair. That was new to me.

I happen to be a Corn Dog connoisseur myself. For those of you looking for a "Fair-esque" fix, try one of your local Dodges Store. Mucho bueno.

In my experiences, few things top a corn dog. However, one must try a kasekrainer in Austria. Get a sandwich roll, cut then end off, stick it on a red-hot poker for several seconds to toast the inside, then fill with mustard and a foot long cheddar-wurst. Es ist gut!
