CNE Stick food deep fried

What artery-clogging dishes has the CNE missed?

On the heels of the news that donut cheeseburgers will be the marquee fatty food attraction at the CNE this year — joining past highlights like deep-fried butter and chocolate covered bacon — organizers announced some of the other decadent foodstuffs on offer this year. Along with standard carnival fare like candy apples and cotton candy, there will be a total of 30 stick-food options available in 2011.

Naturally, there are a number of outlandish and bizarre options, but given the "shock and awe" philosophy that underwrites the creation of many of these "dishes," I wonder if it's possible to go further? In other words, for the sake of future EX-attendees, is it possible to dream up something even more indulgent (and possibly gross) than what's already made the menu, be it this year or in the past? Think of it as the CNE version of the famous Taco Town skit on SNL.

Perhaps deep-fried poutine served on a stick? The possibilities are endless.
