Korean “Corn Dogs”

Most people know what corn dogs are. In the US they are hot dogs wrapped in hushpuppy batter and deep fried on a stick.

“Death Dogs”

While walking through a local Target doing my “glamorous” mom life thing, I heard a vendor joking with Target workers about eating “death dogs” and I was immediately transported in time to my college days. . .
