Corndog Party '10

If you don't know me very well - or if we didn't know each other at SUU -- You will think this post is crazy & I am a bit off my rocker. That's OK...it's all for the love of CORNDOGS:

Yes, this is a blow-up CORNDOG:
Just in case you don't know the history of the yearly CORNDOG Party:

I had the wonderful opportunity to live with some great roommates while at SUU. We threw some of the best parties in the last apartment I lived in. The one party that just kept getting bigger & better was our yearly CORNDOG PARTY. Wendy's - one of the roommates -- Mom passed along a calendar that her school - where she was a lunchlady - received from State Fair Corndogs. It was a hilarious calendar with pictures every month of different corndogs engaging in crazy shenanigans:

Yes, corndogs can pilot a plane carved out a cucumber & carrots.
One particular date on the calendar listed: National Eat-A-Corndog Day. Kimmy, our #1 party planning roommate decided that was the perfect party idea. Simply -- CORNDOGS! That was 9 years ago & we keep the tradition going strong.

Yes, that is 9 years strong.

Here are some pictures gathered from past Corndog parties:
This year, the Hughes', graciously hosted the festivities in Las Vegas. We included several other SUU alums:
Yes, several of these people probably thought we were joking when we invited them to a Corndog Party. Yes, they now still think we are crazy.

The must-have Corndog Day banner:

The prizes for this year's games which included Corndog Bingo:
Yes, those are corndog-flavored air fresheners [and yes, they stunk just like you imagine!] & corndog-flavored mints [which didn't have much flavor -- gratefully].

Amy, Tone, Mr. Corndog & Dana:
It was a fabulous festivity! Thanks to Amy & Cody for hosting. Thanks to Kimmy, Tone & Adam for driving from Cedar City. Thanks to Foster Farms for providing the yummy corndogs.

Yes, you now know that you want to eat a corndog. Go ahead....celebrate!

Yes, you know you want more.
