Nope, Minnesotan to the core. xp

Minnesotan to the core... which is BRITISH

HI DERE, Monday, 4 August 2008 20:23 (eleven years ago) link

What IS a corndog, anyway?

Just got offed, Monday, 4 August 2008 20:24 (eleven years ago) link

;-)

Just got offed, Monday, 4 August 2008 20:24 (eleven years ago) link

More Scandinavian-ish, but British would be preferable.

xp Yeah, and French, too. I'll also cop to German and Irish (or possibly Scottish; suddenly the Irish is in question)

Sara R-C, Monday, 4 August 2008 20:25 (eleven years ago) link

wait, are you telling me an American doesn't like a corndog????

Mr. Que, Monday, 4 August 2008 20:25 (eleven years ago) link

Dan, you are dead to me.

BLACK BEYONCE, Monday, 4 August 2008 20:25 (eleven years ago) link

YES. (me) xp

Sara R-C, Monday, 4 August 2008 20:25 (eleven years ago) link

If you were really Scandinavian, you'd be so busy eating things like lye-soaked cod and rotting shark that a little barbecue sauce or a corn dog would be culinary child's play.

HI DERE, Monday, 4 August 2008 20:26 (eleven years ago) link

Also I think John misparsed my sentence. ;_;

HI DERE, Monday, 4 August 2008 20:27 (eleven years ago) link

lol, i've never had a corndog either i should STFU

Mr. Que, Monday, 4 August 2008 20:27 (eleven years ago) link

perhaps corn dogs are simply too spicy for the scandanavian

BLACK BEYONCE, Monday, 4 August 2008 20:28 (eleven years ago) link

I usually deny the Norwegian thing for the reason of LUTEFISK (who's going to defend *that*?!), but lefse... yes, I'll have some plz.

Also I have eaten plenty of questionable things in my life.

this is all getting very 2g1c

HI DERE, Monday, 4 August 2008 20:31 (eleven years ago) link

I have no idea how to interpret "2g1c"

AHEM. My best example: raw crab. Bad taste, horrific texture.

Sara R-C, Monday, 4 August 2008 20:32 (eleven years ago) link

there is a great SUMMERTIME CORNDOG FUNSTAND about 3 blocks from me, its like i live next door to a state fair 5 months a year!

deeznuts, Monday, 4 August 2008 20:33 (eleven years ago) link

(xp) I would tell you to google it but I like you.

HI DERE, Monday, 4 August 2008 20:35 (eleven years ago) link

I don't know why I cannot resist looking these things up. SIGH

Really, just the bacterial contamination issue alone is TERRIFYING

Sara R-C, Monday, 4 August 2008 20:40 (eleven years ago) link

you know I STILL have never seen that awful, awful thing

HI DERE, Monday, 4 August 2008 20:41 (eleven years ago) link

In college we decided that corn dogs were the perfect food because they have all four food groups: corn (grain), dog (meat), breading (made with dairy), and ketchup (veggie/fruit if you pull the "tomato is a fruit" crap). I live by that reasoning still.

Euler, Monday, 4 August 2008 20:42 (eleven years ago) link

That is my thinking about PIZZA

I'm impressed that you have resisted thus far. xp

Sara R-C, Monday, 4 August 2008 20:43 (eleven years ago) link

NATURE'S PERFECT FOOD

Abbott, Monday, 4 August 2008 20:59 (eleven years ago) link

Raw crab?
Also, not Norwegian and I will defend lutefisk.

But I like almost anything that is smoked or pickled.

aimurchie, Monday, 4 August 2008 21:13 (eleven years ago) link

Or soaked in LYE?!

Sara R-C, Monday, 4 August 2008 21:17 (eleven years ago) link

Man Sara I'm a filthy vegetarian and even I like corndogs (Abbs otm in re: Satan's Meatless Corndogs).

en i see kay, Monday, 4 August 2008 21:20 (eleven years ago) link

My best friend and her husband are vegetarians and they eat those all the time. I just cannot, seeing as how I don't even like real corndogs!

Gah, I'm surrounded on all sides.

Sara R-C, Monday, 4 August 2008 21:21 (eleven years ago) link

surrounded by corn dogs = HEAVEN

HI DERE, Monday, 4 August 2008 21:22 (eleven years ago) link

surrounded by corndog-wielding nutcases = PURGATORY

Sara R-C, Monday, 4 August 2008 21:23 (eleven years ago) link

wtf who's wasting time wielding a corndog when you could be eating it? psychos

HI DERE, Monday, 4 August 2008 21:24 (eleven years ago) link

mr yuk sticker

jergïns, Monday, 4 August 2008 21:24 (eleven years ago) link

the corn dogs at Cedar Point have got to be the best in the world. They're not frozen: they take the dog, skewer it, dip it in batter, and fry it.

I would like to try corn bratwurst sometime

Euler, Monday, 4 August 2008 21:25 (eleven years ago) link

Okay, that sounds better.

Sara R-C, Monday, 4 August 2008 21:25 (eleven years ago) link

wait, I just thought of the most amazing idea

corncorn

HI DERE, Monday, 4 August 2008 21:25 (eleven years ago) link

uhhh how do you typically buy corn dogs at stands? do they take them out of a freezer & microwave them in front of you?

deeznuts, Monday, 4 August 2008 21:26 (eleven years ago) link

Shit.

Lately I've gotten the notion while reading fiction that writing a good ending is really, really difficult. I've run into trite endings and a few that didn't make any sense at all.

Sara R-C, Wednesday, 30 March 2011 17:12 (eight years ago) link

xp LOL

Sara R-C, Wednesday, 30 March 2011 17:12 (eight years ago) link

It started early for you, then.

Sara R-C, Wednesday, 30 March 2011 17:12 (eight years ago) link

i want to say yes.....

Damned fish in '1 fish, 2 fish' got on my nerves, too.

Si tu parles, tu meurs. Si tu te tais, tu meurs. Alors, dis et (Michael White), Wednesday, 30 March 2011 17:13 (eight years ago) link

agree with you on endings, particularly with anything fantasy-y

There has to be a word for that

the salmon of procrastination (darraghmac), Wednesday, 30 March 2011 17:14 (eight years ago) link

Stephen King Syndrome

whelping at his sandpapery best (DJP), Wednesday, 30 March 2011 17:15 (eight years ago) link

lol, funnily enough I was thinking specifically of a book by Stephen King's son, Joe Hill (_Horns_). Great concept, the end is a mishmash of wtf happened?

Sara R-C, Wednesday, 30 March 2011 17:16 (eight years ago) link

At least w Stephen King I usually understand what he was trying to get at...

Sara R-C, Wednesday, 30 March 2011 17:17 (eight years ago) link

no, i meant fantasy-y

the salmon of procrastination (darraghmac), Wednesday, 30 March 2011 17:17 (eight years ago) link

Pat endings don't satisfy. Many non-ending endings don't satisfy. Improbable endings don't satisfy. One of the things I most adored about Maugham short stories as a kid was how often they had perfect endings.

Si tu parles, tu meurs. Si tu te tais, tu meurs. Alors, dis et (Michael White), Wednesday, 30 March 2011 17:17 (eight years ago) link

Also took it into my head to read the first _30 Days of Night_ graphic novel which was all great concept and terrible everything else.

Sara R-C, Wednesday, 30 March 2011 17:17 (eight years ago) link

the movie is actually pretty decent

whelping at his sandpapery best (DJP), Wednesday, 30 March 2011 17:18 (eight years ago) link

xp Michael, that's how I felt about Ray Bradbury short stories when I was younger, but now I'm afraid to go back and re-read them because I'm afraid I'll think they suck now

Sara R-C, Wednesday, 30 March 2011 17:18 (eight years ago) link

they don't, not at all

whelping at his sandpapery best (DJP), Wednesday, 30 March 2011 17:18 (eight years ago) link

"The Veldt" is still terrifying

whelping at his sandpapery best (DJP), Wednesday, 30 March 2011 17:19 (eight years ago) link

Dan - it's in my Netflix queue, just haven't been in a vampire-y mood since reading that. Loved the first two _Walking Dead_ graphic novels and am lobbying for more of them for Mother's Day.

Sara R-C, Wednesday, 30 March 2011 17:19 (eight years ago) link

Oh, man, "The Veldt" is what got me hooked...

Sara R-C, Wednesday, 30 March 2011 17:19 (eight years ago) link

I used to go to the library and use the CARD CATALOG to find Bradbury books that weren't on the HSTNGS shelves. I remember using little slips of paper to make requests. Sometimes it even worked!

Sara R-C, Wednesday, 30 March 2011 17:20 (eight years ago) link

Man, I love the internets...

Sara R-C, Wednesday, 30 March 2011 17:23 (eight years ago) link

Yeah after a bunch of musing I recently realized that in retrospect I pretty much hated the Panera series as well.

broke my o_O face o_O (jjjusten), Wednesday, 30 March 2011 19:51 (eight years ago) link

well what do you expect when you read a series that's about Caesar salad flavored coffee drinks?

Sara R-C, Wednesday, 30 March 2011 20:12 (eight years ago) link

to be up all night burping anchovies

the salmon of procrastination (darraghmac), Wednesday, 30 March 2011 20:15 (eight years ago) link

I feel like there's probably some lower GI effects possible here, too, but I'll refrain from elaborating.

Sara R-C, Wednesday, 30 March 2011 20:17 (eight years ago) link

I come to bury caeser, not to make pastries and beverages that taste like him

broke my o_O face o_O (jjjusten), Wednesday, 30 March 2011 20:20 (eight years ago) link

there's an obvious, environmentally conscious solution here that will save you time...

Sara R-C, Wednesday, 30 March 2011 20:24 (eight years ago) link

SOYLENT GREEN IS CAESAR!!!

Sara R-C, Wednesday, 30 March 2011 20:24 (eight years ago) link

btw everyone here loves me enough to go buy a copy of The Mountain Goats' All Eternals Deck this week, right

whelping at his sandpapery best (DJP), Wednesday, 30 March 2011 21:18 (eight years ago) link

You get a royalty? Niiiice, I figured you got a flat fee.

The Louvin Spoonful (WmC), Wednesday, 30 March 2011 21:27 (eight years ago) link

no royalties, I just want to be able to say "I was on an album that debuted in Billboard's Top 200"

whelping at his sandpapery best (DJP), Wednesday, 30 March 2011 21:28 (eight years ago) link

yeah, I was making a horribly formed not-even-a-joke. Congrats on being on the record, btw!

The Louvin Spoonful (WmC), Wednesday, 30 March 2011 21:32 (eight years ago) link

^_^ TY

whelping at his sandpapery best (DJP), Wednesday, 30 March 2011 21:34 (eight years ago) link

whoa, I didn't know about that! Cool!!!

Sara R-C, Wednesday, 30 March 2011 22:58 (eight years ago) link

I guess I'd better try to find some spending money!

Sara R-C, Wednesday, 30 March 2011 22:58 (eight years ago) link

maybe you could sell some of your magic beans that you grow in imaginationville

broke my o_O face o_O (jjjusten), Wednesday, 30 March 2011 23:03 (eight years ago) link

I'll sell you a thousand acres there. I think you'll like it, as long as you stay away from some of the stupider stuff (if you see someone sparkling in the sunlight, RUN!).

Sara R-C, Wednesday, 30 March 2011 23:07 (eight years ago) link

oh no, you have ravers

whelping at his sandpapery best (DJP), Wednesday, 30 March 2011 23:09 (eight years ago) link

haven't figured out how to eradicate them yet

Sara R-C, Wednesday, 30 March 2011 23:10 (eight years ago) link

tried feeding them the magic beans, but that just led to unpleasant intestinal problems for them, which quickly becomes a problem for everyone else

Sara R-C, Wednesday, 30 March 2011 23:10 (eight years ago) link

PS John - do NOT eat the magic beans!

Sara R-C, Wednesday, 30 March 2011 23:11 (eight years ago) link

you can repel them with liberal doses of Nickelback

side-effects include: having to listen to Nickelback

whelping at his sandpapery best (DJP), Wednesday, 30 March 2011 23:11 (eight years ago) link

lol, could be worse

Sara R-C, Wednesday, 30 March 2011 23:12 (eight years ago) link

a neverending loop of "Achy Breaky Heart" will repel *anything*

Sara R-C, Wednesday, 30 March 2011 23:12 (eight years ago) link

you can also thin them out by asking to see their resumes

whelping at his sandpapery best (DJP), Wednesday, 30 March 2011 23:14 (eight years ago) link

but the ones who stay will be super-persistent and will regale you with tales of their work experience, so it's best to use this strategy judiciously

Sara R-C, Wednesday, 30 March 2011 23:18 (eight years ago) link

you can make the ones who stay mow your lawn

whelping at his sandpapery best (DJP), Thursday, 31 March 2011 15:01 (eight years ago) link

if your outdoor holdings are more expansive than that, you can grt them to actually separate the wheat from the chaff

the salmon of procrastination (darraghmac), Thursday, 31 March 2011 15:09 (eight years ago) link

lol
