machodonkeywrestler: js34603: That's awful, where will people go to get a hot dog now? It's not like you can just go to a store...or a gas station...and get a hot dog.

I mean, there're gas stations all over the park, right?


Yes. They're called "hot dog carts."

SomeFarkinFarmgirl: Where exactly does it say in TFA that Batali had anything to do with the hot dog vendors getting kicked out?


He's on the Board of the organization that said GTFO.

Jesus - learn to read, you goddamn hick.

ReapTheChaos: Any place that serves boiled hot dogs deserves to be put out of business. Hot dogs are to be cooked on a grill, in a pinch a frying pan or electric griddle will due, so long at the outer skin gets a good char on them. As always, mustard/onions, chili/cheese are the only acceptable toppings.


Fark off. I am so sick of hipster food douchebag's ranting the "Only mustard! No Ketchup!" Fark you, you foodie douche.
I pay for it..I'll dip them in ketchup, stick up em' up my ass and run around the house singing Yankee Doodle, Hallelujah!
That's my business! You eat your stupid Food Network Program mustard is the best shiat to yourself.

It's a proud tradition dating back to the native American Indians' practice of using every part of a buffalo or other large game animal taken in hunting and not wasting any part.  Hot dogs wished they were made out of tongues and sphincters, but that would be an exceptional batch to get such quality cuts.  There's lots of weighty flesh along the pathway between tongue and arsehole that no steakhouse or Chinese grill would consider paying for.  And that tonnage is shipped to Oscar Mayer, Bryan hot dogs, etc.  Omaha Steaks isn't calling up for tons of lips and eyelids.  But there's no way this gross tonnage of undesirable flesh can just be thrown away.  It took time and nutrients to grow those parts just like it did to grow the ribeye.  Hotdogs are the way the beef and pork industries make citizens pay for their clean-up bills.  And when they finally find a way to utilize ground hoof filings for something resembling a practical use, you'll be subscribing and picking up your cartons of ground hoof filing skin rejuvenating cream and living the "waste no part" dream.

Are the heroin dealers still there?

There aren't even heroin dealers in Harlem any more.


That's a shame. Good people: good times.
Now the place is overrun with god@mn gelato vendors.
Used to be such a nice neighborhood.

I was thinking that watching Chef Ramsay beat the living shiat out of another celebrity chef would be awesome, but the entire episode would be one long bleep.

But if we're going to have celebrity chef boxing, there is only one commentator who could do the sport justice: Alton motherfarking Brown.

Costco's food court certainly doesn't mind selling hot dogs and gelato from the same counter.

Marion Bartoli has a gelato cart?  Is that what she's doing in retirement?  Well, if it makes her happy.

Just change the name of the cart to "Gourmet Dogs", offer up dijon mustard and boiled arugula toppings, charge ten bucks and call it a day.
