Don't get the wrong impression. I'm not on death row or anything. I'm just planning a trip to the Great State Fair of Texas.

The State Fair means a lot of things to a lot of people, but to me, it's all about frying things that ought not be fried.

It all started in the late 30's when the Fletcher Brothers made their first Corny Dog. Since then, everyone has been trying to find their own classic.

Last year's Deep Fried Big Tex didn't go so well, but this year looks like a good year for clogged arteries.

My wife says the food there will kill me one of these days, so I'm asking you, What should I eat for my last meal?



The following geeklist contains actual food offered at this years State Fair of Texas. I'm not making any of this up. I'm simply documenting my search for the ultimate Last Meal.

Deep Fried Cuban Roll

This delicacy won "Best Tasting" at a local Fry Off, but who cares about taste. I'm after the unnusual, the unthinkable, and maybe the undigestable.

This is basically just pork, ham and pickles in a chimichanga.

Next, please.

Fernie's Deep Fried King Ranch Casserole

If you've ever had King Ranch Chicken, I'm sure you thought, "This would be a lot better if it was Fried". But they've taken it one step further.

After all, if you're gonna fry something, you might as well fry it into the shape of Texas.

And then, why not stick a flag in it? Just jam that toothpick right through the heart of Texas.

I can't eat this, it's just too beautiful.

Fried Thanksgiving Dinner

If you asked "How is that different from regular Thanksgiving Dinner?" then you Might be a Redneck.

This entre combines Turkey, dressing, and creamed corn. It's served with sides of Cranberry Sauce and Gravy (not fried).

This comes from the same culinary savant who gave us Fried Bubble Gum in 2011. (I had some. It should be digested in another 9 years.)

Unfortunately, this dish just doesn't do it for me. There are simply too many non-fried elements.

Deep Fried Chocolate Chip Burrito

As brilliant as this sounds, it's basicaaly just a re-hash of the Fried Cookie Dough that took the fair by storm a few years back.

There's no doubt that I'll have one of these, but I won't be happy about it.

I want innovation, not re-runs.

Deep Fried Spaghetti and Meat Balls

Those blue bloods at the fancy restaurants need a fork And a spoon to eat spaghetti.

I can do it with just a stick.

Southern Style Chicken Fried Meatloaf

Southern Style AND Chicken Fried. That's a little redundant.

If there's one thing I don't need, it's redundant food.

Pig Toes on a Stick

My initial fear that these might be actual pig toes turned out to be unwarranted.

It's actually Tater Tots and Jalepenos wrapped in Bacon, then deep fried on a stick.

On paper, this may be the best thing ever! I'll definitely have one.

It may just be my last meal.

Well whatever your bacon-wrapped deep-fried main course is, I hope you finish it off with a genuine candy apple dessert. I'm not talking about some pansy caramel apple; I mean the real deal eat-it-on-Thursday-night-and-still-be-brushing-the-candy-out-of-your-teeth-next-Tuesday kind. Please tell us you're not settling for anything less. The world is now watching. Please don't let us down.

Well, Snickers, not Snicket's, but I do love me a deep fried Snickers with powdered sugar on top. Take your basic hot chocolate and quadruple the intensity.

I'm thinking about creating my own State Fair entry for next year's fried food contest: DEEP FRIED ROLAIDS. I believe it can work on many levels...delicious and medicinal.
