We need a corndog sticky.
To sum it up: PART ONE:
Nebraska fans were called corn
dogs by Big 12 foes because they are the corn
huskers. Makes sense, I guess. PART TWO:
Auburn fan proclaims LSU fans smell like corndogs, It's an obvious case of plagiarism. If an opponent has the same mascot as you (see: Auburn Tigers and LSU Tigers) you can't really make fun of tigers. What's an unimaginative Auburn fan to do? Steal some random insult from other passionate college football fanbase.
Over the years some people have reasoned that Auburn fans (and now other less intelligent fanbases including Alabama, UGA, Florida, etc.) call us corndogs because of all the fried food we cook at tailgates. This is a spin put on the obvious lack of imagination this insult was born from. Anybody who has been to LSU during a tailgate realizes quite quickly that most food is grilled or prepared in other ways more frequently than fried.
This is all really funny because most LSU fans now embrace the corndog name because that insult(?) shows, more than anything, how lame Aurburn fans really are. Being called a corndog is now a badge of honor. There are worse things to be. How would you like to be a Gump or Bammer?
Finally I present to all LSU now schooled in the history of the "LSU Fans Smell Like Corndogs" the original blog that started the whole "corndog thing". LSU Fans Smell Like Corndogs
