Breakfast is a great way to tide you over from Pre-Breakfast to Brunch, but it's not always portable. That's why Jimmy Dean invented the "Pancake & Sausage On A Stick." That, and he wanted to punish us.

Ian: It looks like the dipstick you use to check the sausage level in your engine.

Peter: These are great if you're on the go and your other arm is busy wiping your tears.

Robert: These are also one of the few known methods to kill the dreaded vampire Count Fatula.

[The verdict: not so good. It is highly portable, but it has a taste and texture you don't want to take anywhere. Finally, a food corn dogs can look down on.]
