Health magazine has given us an award. They like us, they really like us!
Oh, wait; the award is for being fat slobs.
The Texas State Fair made the magazine’s list of 50 fattest foods across the nation with its artery clogging but damn tasty corny dogs (19 grams of fat).
A couple of Texas brothers invented corn dogs in 1942. Minnesotans are trying to steal our glory, saying they were slathering corn meal on weiners and deep frying them a full year earlier.
That frozen tundra of a state isn’t going to beat Texas at anything. Those suckers gave us five players and six draft picks for Herschel Walker, viewed by some as the most lopsided trade in NFL history.
Okay, the frozen tundra deserves props for producing this guy.
But even that musical icon can’t trump the murderer’s row of talent that hails from the Lone Star State – Stevie Ray Vaughan, Willie Nelson, Janis Joplin, Roy Orbison, Pantera, Buddy Holly, Lightnin’ Hopkins, Selena, Robert Earl Keen, and Rivercrest Yacht Club.
