PHEW! CNN Censors The Corndog At The Iowa State Fair

Eat the corndog at your own risk.

That tends to be the philosophy of politicians attending state fairs, where a picture of corndog in the mouth of former Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn), for instance, can easily look like she’s having too good of a time.

If you know what we mean.

Presidential hopeful and former Texas Gov. Rick Perry has also suffered his own corndog problems. Shove one of those in your mouth as a man and his heterosexuality goes out of the window. (Not that there’s anything wrong with that if you’re not married to a woman.)

But now CNN has taken the fear out of ingesting corndogs.

Watch as CNN’s Chris Moody eats a large, thick, juicy corndog on a stick without any fear whatsoever.

No doubt he’s thankful for the censor.
