Yesterday I had the chance to go to the Indiana State Fair as part of the group representing the Astronomy department for the Fair's "IU Day." One of my greatest guilty pleasures if fresh dipped, fresh fried corn dogs. And there I discovered that they had them in regular and foot-long varieties. So, I got my foot-long corn dog, and lordy, lordy (as Rogov would say), what a glorious thing that was. Highlight of my week. Been dreaming of it since. Yum!!!!!
So, who else shares my guilty love of corn dogs?
