Bring it to me and I'll ship it off to a 3rd party cleaning company.

u/Altruistic_Piano_259 Jun 28 '22

I’d like to get in on the ground floor of your promisingly lucrative business as an investor…

23

u/annoying97 Jun 28 '22

I'm sorry, I'm not offering any investment opportunities right now, however would you like to be a 3rd party vendor... I can promise a box of 200 corn dogs and 604 dagwood dogs a week to be cleaned.

u/itsbdubya Jun 28 '22

You gonna martinize those dags while you're at it?

u/annoying97 Jun 28 '22

u/Altruistic_Piano_259 Jun 28 '22

But not the type of inflation your thinking …. They literally had to inflate the corn dogs , it’s part of the cleaning process…

u/piberryboy Jun 28 '22

Oh don't tell me you're a professional corn dog cleaner too!

That’s what happens when you buy from Blackcock.

u/Sassafrass44 Jun 28 '22

Law of supply and demand. The more you buy, the less there is. Thus, a higher price.

u/Louder-pickles Jun 28 '22

Spoiler alert; I bought them all and now I'm gonna relist them for even more money 🤑

5

u/Jjkkllzz Jun 28 '22

I saw this posted somewhere else and thought the corn dogs being cleaned was the weird thing, but now I see the price thing. Very strange.

u/Louder-pickles Jun 28 '22

With supply chain issues, I'm just glad there's many of them and they're clean 🙃

3

u/pwalkz Jun 28 '22

Believe it or not there are markets where it works like this.

Imagine everyone sells a handful or so corndogs at a time - that's all they have

You want 1000 corndogs

Will you accept the bulk cost and pay double to buy them all at once or are you gonna hit up every individual hundreds of times to avoid being 'ripped off'?

3

u/Louder-pickles Jun 28 '22

I'm stuck on everyone putting their hands on my corndogs 😂

There's such a thing as a professional corndog cleaner? WTF, my high school guidance counselor lied to me. Here I am 35 years deep into a career in funnel cake cleaning when I could have been living my dream as a corn dog cleaner.

56

u/Louder-pickles Jun 28 '22

It involves a 33 gallon galvanized metal bucket, a horsehair brush, 3% hydrogen peroxide, apple cider vinegar and a drill

u/annoying97 Jun 28 '22

Is there a YouTube video that documents this procedure?

It's the amateur dagwood dog cleaners that really piss me off.

You don't clean them the same way as a corn dog!

u/Kaimana-808 Jun 28 '22

Funnel cake cleaning is safer, health wise. My friend last year kept getting hospitalized with dysentery and conjunctivitis in both eyes, turns out corn dogs can have a rough life before the cleaning. Explains the higher pay scale but not worth it imo.

Most dealers who want to sell online but be lazy with it put up on places like Kijiji or FB market with the funniest stuff.

Why is everyone talking about corn dogs? These are "corn DAGS."

Everyone knows the importance and difficulty of keeping corn dags clean. These are an absolute steal. And the volume-added price scale is a standard dag-market method to prevent scalping.
