Of Horndogs And Corndogs

While I'm amused by photos of Republican candidates enjoying corndogs, I think the right way to appreciate them is one that doesn't imply anything discreditable about the corndog-eater. The fact that it looks vaguely like the eater is fellating a penis should merely be seen as a silly coincidence. Even when this is pointed out, the eater should not feel any embarrassment about the matter.

In general, I don't think people should be hesitant to eat foods with a phallic shape. Corndogs don't strike me as an especially good food, but many better foods such as sausages, bananas, and popsicles have such a shape. It's a good shape for manmade foods, as it allows them to fit nicely inside the mouth through the entire eating process.

Also, I don't think that there's anything particularly embarrassing about sucking on penises. It's a behavior that pleases others. We rightly admire behaviors that please others, and the sucking of penises should be no exception to that rule.
