From my ever-slovenly but impishly charming pal Skip Evans comes the news that this past Saturday was National Corn Dog Day. For anyone out there who doesn’t know what a corndog is, this webpage explains it:
Corn dogs are hot dogs dipped in corn batter, deep fried and served on a stick. Corn dogs were supposedly created in 1942 for the Texas State Fair by Neil Fletcher.
Corn dogs are an excellent source of calories, fat, cholesterol and salt.
That about sums it up.
