You want to do WHAT with that corndog?

On Saturday evening, my gentleman friend and I found a recipe for mini corndogs. We decided my two twenty-something male housemates would enjoy the meal as much as his kids would, so everyone was invited to take part.

This might have been a mistake.

Turning three grown men and one romance author loose in a kitchen full of corndogs is a recipe for terrible innuendo. Luckily, the kids were in a different part of the house when the following utterances had me doubled over in laughter: 

On failing to purchase the mini hot dogs suggested in the recipe:
It’s fine, the big ones will be juicier anyway.

On deciding whether to cut the hot dogs in half or in thirds:
Do you think this is too big to fit?

On testing the batter for consistency:
I don’t think that’s thick enough.

On determining the best way to position the corndog skewers:
Should I stick it in sideways, or straight in?

On checking the deep fryer’s temperature:
It’s hot enough, you can put it in now.

On lamenting the oil level in the deep fryer:
I wish I had just one more inch.

On finding the first corndog still cold in the middle:
You pulled it out too soon.

On waiting for the corndogs to cool:
Don’t put that in your mouth yet!

Admit it – you're never going to look at corndogs the same way again, are you?

No. And I had mini corndogs all set to feed to my kids! Yikes!

Never looked at them any other way in the first place!

Little known fact: I have never had a corn dog.

Now I will have to try them.

Well, I could see most of those coming up (heh) in the bedroom easily enough, but...no. Never mind.

I was GOING to ask if anyone had ever actually tried to "stick it in sideways," but no need for us to get personal here.

Still. Ouch.
