fried twinkie

    You wander around enough county fairs, and you will find that just about every thing you can find in a 7-11 will be deep fried.

    is it wrong that this idea actually appeals to some primal part of my psyche? I live in wisconsin, actually, so i think i have a religious obligation to seek out more at the next fair – in the spirit of scientific exploration, of course. and a fair degree of masochism, but that’s why I bought a Wii Fit.

    My county fair just opened today. Think I’ll have to take a wander through it next week. Never know what new and amazing concoction I might find!

    I can’t imagine the point of a fried Twinkie, but, coming over from Dean Esmay’s site, I would have sworn that, at first glance, this looked like some sort of deep-fried rodent. Sheeesh.

    Yeah, I thought it was a rat, too. Which, you know, would be somewhat more gross.
