As often happenes, the opening of a new drive-through restaurant in town (a Culver’s, in case you are curious) has both messed up traffic on one of our major thoroughfairs and reminded me how good fried cheddar cheese curds are.  Indeed, having mostly given up on fast food beef, the side items are the big selling point for me.  A good french fry is a winner, but either cheese curds or onion rings are a slamdunk, especially if they’re good onion rings.  Kansas may lack in some areas, but one thing we always get right are things fried in batter, leading to today’s state fairgrounds query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) reminds Faithful Spoilerites that “Neither” is both a complete bummer and not generally an allowed response to the MS-QOTD, asking: When it comes to deep-fried treats, would you rather have cheese curds or onion rings?

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.


  1. I’m not a huge fan of either of those, but can I pick a third deep fried fairground treat?

    If so – Corn Dogs.
