How to make "circus food" snacks? Answered

My friends and I are having a pot luck, so it doesn't have to be fancy or healthy, for that matter.  I need to make 12 servings of what they call "circus food" because we are going to watch Cirque Du Soleil and that is our theme this week.  However, I'm not sure where to start!  Any ideas would be fantastic!

Deep fried ANYTHING. Popcorn/caramel corn acquire a cotton candy (candy floss) machine (not cheap, luckily I have one) any food that is high-fat, high-salt, high-sugar will be a hit.

Fried dough, and sausage and onions on a hot dog bun are must have circus foods. Go easy on the fried dough, though. Had to learn that the hard way.

If it won't be a real meal, just a snack, I'd recommend popcorn and cotton-candy. That's stuff I've always seen at the circus.
