Deep Fryer

A few weeks ago, when I was at Steve's house a few doors down, Ty came in with a dollar and tried to convince Christy that he needed to make a corndog in Steve's new, tall, looks vaguely like a popcorn cart, deep fryer for a neighborhood kid. Christy seemed dubious, at best.

Eventually, I found out that Steve had purchased this contraption in an effort to create the next, great State Fair fried thing on a stick and, in the meantime, it was being used by Ty to both create copious corndogs and to burn himself. In that spirit, I offer Christy this picture of what can happen with inappropriate deep fryer usage...

I'm not sure if this is an incentive or disincentive to a young boy. It could probably go either way.

Or, go watch the video...the sizzling against the gloves is very convincing.
