    Creating a “day,” “week,” or “month” is one of my favorite marketing tactics.  Done it a million times and it always works.

    Aside from our thousand-hit-aversary on July 1, today may be the biggest day for our beloved trials.

    1. I am a bit surprised that there are no responses to this post, but I am happy to be the first.

      4 words -National Corn Dog Day!

      This will not be a day of the year, but rather a day of the week. Sunday. Which is also the day of the week I most frequently enjoy a delicious corn dog.

      • What an honor, Brad!? I never knew you were a reader. I can’t believe I missed such a sacred event as National Corn Dog day. While I love your weekly celebration of the hot dog on a stick, I do want to share with you the “official” day – March 21. Mark your calendar. Believe it or not, it has a Web site too!! Check it out:
        Wonder how we’re going to celebrate this one??

        • March 21st is now marked on my calendar. How convenient, 3/21/10 falls on a Sunday! The official National Corn Dog day of the Week!
