Welcome to Corn Dog Warehouse...


“Welcome to Corn Dog Warehouse, home of King Corng, the World’s Largest Man-Made Corn Dog. May I take your order?”

“Wow, that’s a mouthful. Do you have to say that to everyone?”

“Yes sir. Can I interest you a Colossal Corny Corn Dog Combo, it’s just $3.99.”

“Actually, I’m looking for something a little lighter…”

“How about our Junior Corndog Classic? It’s four feet of meat-and-cornmeal value meal deal.”

“Tempting… but I’m watching my diet.”

“Well, there’s our Crispy Cod Dog with a Candied Corn-on-the-Cob.”

“I don’t know…”

“It comes with our Bottomless Tub o’ Tartar.”

“That’s a no-go. Ummm, can you get the Whirly Curly Chili Cheese Fries without cheese?”

“No sir.”

“Why not?”

“Well, the fries are made of cheese.”

“Okay, do the Awesomely OuttaSite Onion Rings have onions in them?”

“Duh, they’re called Onion Rings…”

“But do they have onions in them?”

“Sir, they’re onion rings…”

“But if I cut off the crusty coating, will I find a ring of onion inside?”

“No sir.”

“What’s your soup de jour?”

“That’s our soup of the day.”

“Okay, what is it?”

“Today’s soup is Cornball Classic.”

“I get the ‘corn,’ but what’s the ‘ball’?”

“Ummmm… a ball of lard.”

“Pass. Do you have anything even halfway healthy?”

“Sure, we’ve got the Corndog Warehouse Halfway Healthy Menu.”

“What’s on it?

“Wait, lemme check. Nobody’s ever ordered from it before. Okay… here we go. Salad-on-a-Stick.”

“That sounds tempting. What’s on it?”

“A lettuce leaf, cherry tomato, six croutons, four cheddar cheese chunks and two strips of crispy bacon, all arranged on a stick and then dipped in tangy ranch dressing.”

“Pass. What else’s on the Halfway Healthy menu?”

“Hmmmmm… Yogurt-on-a-Stick…”

“Sounds messy.”

“Yeah, I don’t recommend that one, even though it is non-dairy, ummmm…”

“What’s the Tofu-oot Long Special?”

“We discontinued that after that report that our tofu was actually made of tripe.”

“Ewwwww…”

“But we have started offering Fried Tripe Strips.”

“That’s it then, that’s everything that’s halfway healthy?”

“Well, we still offer our Meatless, Wheatless Eat Less Special.”

“That’s just a corn dog stick, isn’t it?”

“Yeah.”

“All right. Give me two. To go.”

“Would you like fries with that?”

  1. LOL!
    I have to admit though - one of things I love about American fast food is the Corn Dog, I'd always wanted to try one and I had one at my first live baseball match... and was hooked on both the corn dogs AND the baseball!!

  5. LOL! Thanks for the laugh today Jack, I really, really needed it!! :) I never much liked corn dogs...always gagged me...too much fat and grease I guess. But my mom was noshing on one the other day, and I could smell the mustard, and the cornmeal, and Lord help me the grease, and for a second there....I wanted one SOOOO bad...and then I remembered....wtf, I don't even LIKE THEM!!! Crazy how your mind messes with you like that!

  8. aww man I LOVE corn dogs! Oh and YES I do make those in a healthy way of course. You reminded me to make them soon- THX! :)

    ReplyDelete
  9. lol American Food...! As a Brit, I was really taken aback when I ordered a starter of fried vegetables with ranch dressing - there was enough to feed four people as a main!

    ReplyDelete
  10. Ha ha! Funny!

    Bleah. I hate corn dogs. The very thought makes me feel sick. Those of you who've never tried one--you're not missing anything. Really.

  11. Surely you don't think a place called Corn Dog Warehouse has a healthy choice.

    Oh...was that the point? Or? ;)

  12. Sounds like my 10 day stint and 5 day stint at two county fairs in Aug and Sept. Vendors have zero healthy food choices....I packed my lunch and dinners most days.

    Did you see that Oprah ate deep fried twinkie and deep fried butter at the Texas State fair. Mmmmmmm.

    ReplyDelete
  13. That reminds me of some of the restaurants around here... the healthy choice is a 1000 calorie salad. :P

    But mmmm, corn dog. Must be about lunch time 'round here...

  14. Greta--I grew up in Texas and I have to say the state is proud of its fried food. Each year the vendors at the fair try to out do each other. I think the "fried butter" was the winner this year. Doesn't exactly make me proud to be a Texan.

    Jack--I've had similar experiences with some restaurants. "What do you have thats healthy?" Fried green beans. Ummm...yeah.....no.

  17. okay, just read greta's comment...and
    DEEP FRIED BUTTER!!!????
    I think I just threw up in my mouth.

    ReplyDelete
  18. One blogger just reported that she tried the Deep Fried Butter at the Texas fair and it was awesome. (?)

    I am not a corn dog girl, I like my dogs with hair and legs. But, my kids love anything on a stick. This morning the 8 year old had a Sausage on a Stick (those things wrapped in pancake batter). No flames, I only let him eat that stuff because he actually needs to gain weight. If I put some salad on a stick they would definitely eat it!

    ReplyDelete
  19. That was great! Had me laughing out loud.

    ReplyDelete
  20. GREAT! But, I hate to say that this might be out there somewhere, especially after the news of the fried butter at the fair!

    By the way, can I get directions to that place?

    ;-)

  21. corny? yes, but deep, philosophical , meaningful corn!

    two things you never want to see produced, sausage, and public policy. eeek!

  22. Isn't tripe...cooked blood? Or is that tripen?
    Either way, nice take on what's really in fast food...

    Oh, sorry, Sunshine Mama always gets the cherry but, nice try.
