Corndog heaven at Iowa State Fair

August 7, 2008 5:40:26 PM PDT
The Iowa state fair kicked off this morning with a record-setting "chomp." 8,400 corndogs were handed out this morning during the opening ceremonies in Des Moines, to set a record for the most people simultaneously to eat corndogs.

Some came from as far away as Australia.

Call it a piece of corndog history and where else than the Iowa state fair were you haven't really been until a corndog meets your lips.
