They're in Toronto all year round. Pussies.

Weiners are always for sale--they just don't come from carts.
2003-03-12 10:46:53 AM  
Now THAT is news!

/Wolf whistles and thunderous applause
2003-03-12 11:07:52 AM  
They are year round here too...

Street meat. Foul-smelling brown water not included.

This reminds me of an old SNL bit with Martin Short as Katherine Hepburns' long lost brother as a hot dog vendor. I loved that bit - he does a great Hepburn... and the cut-away shots of Harry Shearer (sp?) are farking hilarious.

In Iowa, if you buy a hot dog from a vendor, you can be arrested for soliciting prostitution.
2003-03-12 03:48:32 PM  
Less than fascinating.
2003-03-12 03:50:21 PM  

People in southern states should really care about this.
actually, I'd be surprised if ANYONE cared about this.

1) Warehouse floor

2) Brown water

3) Your stomach

Note to self: go to Syracuse, declare myself God, watch the simple minded citizens create Golden statues in my honor. Should they threaten to revolt, take away their hot dog carts.

I thought that fark screened news stories... *sigh*
2003-03-12 03:53:28 PM  
It's gonna be a bright, bright and sunshiney day.
2003-03-12 03:55:15 PM  
w00t! Road Trip!
2003-03-12 03:55:52 PM  
Ah,yes. Spring came early in Florida,too.(possibly NSFW)

Hot dog girl
2003-03-12 03:55:57 PM  
Next month...relish.
2003-03-12 03:57:27 PM  
Forsythe - can't check while at work...T-back?
2003-03-12 03:59:55 PM  
Sign of Spring?!?! Here in the rocky mountains, they're here all year long.

Hell, they're even set up before the plows get on the road to clear is.

Syracuse = tehsuck
2003-03-12 04:02:40 PM  
What I meant to say was....
Syracuse = tehsuck
Syracuse = tehsuck
Syracuse = tehsuck
Syracuse = tehsuck

That will be all.

Love from your devoted Mayor,McFark

StrikeitRich: Tampa/St. Pete/Clearwater has hot dog girls on the beaches that are rather infamous for wearing t-backs and bikini tops while selling their processed meat products. They're rather popular. Except with the same conservative faction of the local government that banned lapdancing.
2003-03-12 04:04:42 PM  
Spring...when a young man's fancy turns to thoughts of....

2003-03-12 04:05:20 PM  
In NYC, the first sign of spring is the appearance of the Mr. Softee trucks.

I saw one in front of the Virgin Megastore at Union Square the other day. w00t!

"When the money starts to run out, it's time to come out."

Is today "Bait for Cochranisms Day?"
2003-03-12 04:05:34 PM  
Sorry, but the sign of spring for me is not the hot dog stands, but the flock of Red-Breasted Robins that I saw in my backyard on Monday, March 10, 2003. Thank you.
2003-03-12 04:06:52 PM  
Damn, people still eat hot dogs? You realize the legal limits on those things? (the stuff that "falls in" is separate and at least equally disturbing) I'm semi=proud to say I haven't eaten a hot dog in probably 10 years. If I had to eat one, getting one from some guy with a cart on the street would probably be my last choice.
2003-03-12 04:10:39 PM  
Well Sheena, ya know...hehe, if you lived in California you could see those red-breasted feathered friends year-round! Oh, did I say you could have a tan year round too? Hot dog carts and roach coaches galore in California!!
/re-visiting an ollllddd but rather quick debate. lol
2003-03-12 04:11:19 PM  
My mom used to eat frozen wieners when she was a kid.

/suddenly reconsiders post
2003-03-12 04:11:54 PM  
The first sign of spring to me is the ladies around here starting to show their ever-increasing tanned legs. You's all fake until May or June.
2003-03-12 04:15:45 PM  
Thanks for that little tease there Maveno... I'll have to reconsider moving to CA just to see Robins all year - but then that would wear off and the anticipation of seeing them wouldn't be there... Then what would I anticipate?

I think way too hard some times.
2003-03-12 04:17:11 PM  
the ceiling bonking you on yer head. LOL >joke<
2003-03-12 04:17:41 PM  
LOL, Thanks
2003-03-12 04:19:26 PM  
The first sign of spring in New England is the sound of hitherto-frozen animals dropping from tree branches...

good times....
2003-03-12 04:21:12 PM  
Big deal. Our NYC "dirty water dog" vendors are out in full force all year 'round. Sure, maybe not as cold and snowy as Syracuse, but they work through all the terror attacks too.
2003-03-12 04:22:07 PM  
Here's a cute story. I feed the birds and the squirrels get jealous. So, yesterday I put some old multi-grain bread on my wall outside and this morning Charlie, the squirrel, was sitting there with this HUGE piece of bread -chowin' away.
2003-03-12 04:23:56 PM  
I'm in Syracuse and it does suck here big whoop, about the hotdogs they suck to begin with even if your nipples arent frozen off

Lame. People in southern states should really care about this. actually, I'd be surprised if ANYONE cared about this.


Not even we in Syracuse care about this.
2003-03-12 04:26:57 PM  
They're in Toronto all year round. Pussies.

I hate it when the saurkraut freezes :(
2003-03-12 04:27:09 PM  
There's a big hot dog (and "coney") joint a couple a miles from Syracuse called "Heid's." It has the dumbest slogan I've ever read emblazoned in huge letters on the side of the restaurant--"Food You'll Like"
2003-03-12 04:28:26 PM  
Ahhh...Maveno and Sheena...break it up now. Did someone say "bonk?"
2003-03-12 04:39:00 PM  
Capn - No, someone said "boink!"

boinkboinkboinkboinkboinkboinkboinkboinkboinkboinkboinkboinkboinkboink​boinkboi nkboinkboinkboink.... Ok *whew* enough already!
2003-03-12 04:42:19 PM  
In Iowa, Sheena and Maveno would be considered common-law married now.
2003-03-12 04:45:12 PM  
LOL LawTalkingGuy

Well Sheena, it's you and me babe. Now git in the kitchen and cook me my POT PIE biatch!!

bork bork bork!
2003-03-12 04:45:45 PM  
Hot Dogs! Get yer hot dogs!
[image from too old to be available]
Oh I thought it said Springfield. Nevermind.
2003-03-12 04:51:08 PM  
Expect that Pot Pie to be microwaved... hehheh and open your own damn beer. Do I have "beer wench" written on my forehead?

Wait, I have to go check.... it might still be there from last night. ;)
2003-03-12 04:52:24 PM  
since we're married in Iowa,'s your 1st gift from me..

First sign of spring!
2003-03-12 04:54:11 PM  
omg, I'm a failure already!! And yes, you ARE the beer wench, and it DOES say so!
2003-03-12 04:55:20 PM  
Thanks for the boinks, Sheena! Glad you had some to spare!! My day is better now...
2003-03-12 04:58:22 PM  
Maveno - You know - not everyone can be perfect - like me! *blink**blink**blink* (those are my eyelashes, Capn)

And you are so very welcome, Capn, for the extra boinks. I'll have more to share later.
2003-03-12 05:00:44 PM  
Do we have a love connection here??
