That's Governor Rick Perry sampling a corn dog at the Iowa State Fair recently. 
There are plenty of opportunities to chow down on deep fried goodness right now in Texas.

The State Fair of Texas is going on now in Dallas, and there you can sample deep fried twinkies, oreos, nutter butters, and a good ole Frito pie among many other things.  Not to mention the Fletcher's Corny Dogs.  Do they have deep fried bacon again this year?  That was interesting. 

Next week, the Pineywoods Fair starts in Nacogdoches!  That will be a great place for a funnel cake and some cotton candy, plus of course the carnival rides, and Kids Day at the Fair October 14th.

We love fall.
