Mmmmm...crap on a stick

Everything tastes better when it's skewered on a stick. Not long ago, George Duran (The Food Network's "Ham on the Street") devoted an entire episode to things you can eat. . .on a stick. So did Unwrapped.

Minnesota State Fair is famous (some would say notorious) for showcasing more food on a stick than you can shake a stick at. Supposedly there were 59 DIFFERENT stick-served items at this year's fair, and the video below highlights just about every one of them. The first half of the video is shots of people holding and announcing the items, the last half is of people eating them.

Some of the highlights include pizza on a stick, alligator on a stick, spaghetti on a stick, and a freakin' huge corn dog (at the 1:18 mark or right about when the little circular thing gets below the third "w" in the on-screen web address). I really, really want to make a crack about the unfortunate ketchup placement on that thing, but I won't -- although I think I just did.
