See the "corn" bit threw me off, I though it was a corn on the cob dipped in something! Is it a specific type of sausage, if a hot dog then I would guess a wiener, or are there varieties? Is it an American invention or one they "borrowed"?
(My wife is watching The Bold and the Beautiful and they were eating corndogs hence my curiosity)
After Monday and Tuesday even the calendar says WTF...

Well the "corn" part comes from the fact that the hot dog is traditionally dipped in cornbread batter before being deep fried. I've never seen anything other than the basic hot dog weiner used to make corndog's. In fact, the only variation I have seen is the use of chicken franks instead of pork/beef.

'I haven't had a corndog in years! Especially good with some Ketchup. I'm not a huge fan of funnel cake, seeing as it is so sweet, but a little I can do with. Basically they make funnel cake by letting cake batter drizzle into a large pot of frying oil. As the cake drips in, it becomes all "squiggly" and makes a mesh of fried bread. After the cake is fried, it is taken out and rolled in powdered sugar, making it really sweet. I think it's similar tasting to French begnets (sp?) Rarely do you see funnel cakes outside of state fairs and amusement parks.
