It is one of the greatest things to eat while at a baseball game. It's basically a hotdog ono a stick covered with batter that is slightly fried.

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)

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.

It's Gods perfect food. A hotdog speared on a stick, dipped in cornmeal batter and deepfried, served with ketchup, mustard and a coke. Try the funnel cake for dessert!

So it is like a battered sausage you get in an English chippie, except on a stick. Sounds delicious, damn I'm hungry now!

State Fair of Texas Corny Dogs! If you have never had one, you have never lived. They are exactly as DL021 described, and State Fair of Texas funnel cakes Smile

Of course if you're at the State Fair, you must try some of the other foods like the fried oreos, fried snickers bar, and my personal favorite, Ruth's Tamales.

Think it might be time for lunch #2 about now...

Didn't know either, but apparently it merits a Wikipedia page:

In Canada, a corn dog is the same as a Pogo. Yup, that's what we call em up here.

'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.

Actually, I was thinking more along the lines of grilled salmon (pass the garlic butter once you're done with it), but I'll share the rissoto with you. What are we drinking?

Described above. They can also be topped with fruit/whipped cream. The best ones I've tried were in Knott's Berry Farm and Magic Mountain, both amusement parks in Southen California.

State Fair is just another word for "White Trash Trailer Bash" Mullets, cheap beer, and $0.50 tilter-whirl rides.
