Detective Ted Cooper:  You sure do like eating those things Space cop. Do you even know what hot dogs are made of?

Space Cop: Processed horse penis and Chinese people. At least they are in the future.

Space Cop: [pause]  You know what I miss most about the future?

Detective Ted Cooper: What's that?

Space Cop: Hot dogs

Here's the original article in 2016 Christmas edition of the Medical Journal of Australia: https://www.mja.com.au/jou​rnal/2016/20​5/11/whats-your-hot-dog-histological-c​omparative-analysis

I love the discussion section: "... the absence of identifiable squamous mucosa definitively refutes the oral and anal mucosa hypothesis... " i.e., it was not made from lips and arseholes.

Whew! Good to know the cheap ones are better than the pricey ones. But make no mistake, there is no way I am purposefully going to buy, cook and eat the ones named Fud.

Yeah, and?

Cheap sausages are made of things other than meat.  I am guessing, the Obvious tag is sick from eating Blutwurst?

I got your all-meat dog right here.

It's time for your annual reminder that Angela White is really into meat.

Time for the annual reminder that a tube of fat has more taste than tofurkey.

Chicken-apple sausage FTW.

Have an issue?
Eat more tissue.

I mean hot dogs are basically a degenerate form of sausage. What the hell did they really think was going to be in there?

What a garbage article. Zero understanding of how hot dogs are made. They are most definitely made with meat. They are emulsions. The protein and fat are emulsified (not in the same exact way salad dressings are) and the result is what you see in store shelves. The smooth texture of a hot dogs (unlike a burger or steak) is because the meat and fat are ground down incredibly fine. You'll never see "skeletal muscle" because it's been essentially whipped down to nothing.

A red flag should go off for you when you see the "study" was by a pathologist at a hospital.

the only way I will ever stop eating hot dogs is if they are vegan or contain lab grown meat. otherwise I don't really care. and also they are not just tubes o' fat, cause if they were they'd disappear when boiled.

Years ago, grandpa grilling hotdogs, asks our 3yr old "Hey, want some lips & a-holes?"
3 yr old: "just lips, please"

That, plus they chose three of the worst possible hot dogs to test.
