one very strategic dog could end me.

Two. Even as a teenager, two was my limit.

In my household hotdogs are for the kids. Adults get brats.

One bite would do it. Not interested in eating an amalgam of chicken beaks, pig feet, and rat faeces inside of a intestine wrapper. Yech.

Kielbasa for us, though I'll gladly eat a hot dog, even one with ketchup (and mustard and relish if they're available). Brats are mustard and sour kraut or peppers and onions in beef broth and beer.

I forgot 2 dogs on one bun. Save a few calories that way.

Shuush. I'm trying to train my granddaughter that all sausages are just mustard delivery systems. I will, however, allow grilled or sautéed peppers and onions to be added.

Two, providing that the first is chili and onions and the second is Chicago style and I don't have to eat all the buns.

Hotdogs are too 'merican. Can I off myself via poutine instead?

Great, now I want an Italian sausage with a pile of grilled onions and peppers.

Without the incentives of a national title and televised event, it'd be hard to convince grown-ups to crush piles of franks until they puke or pass out.

...huh?!

"Grown-ups" will do anything for attention or competition, and they did this kind of shiat long before Nathan's ever showed up - I mean, FFS, it's why this "silly tradition" exists on a nationwide stage. People didn't commit to competitive gluttony because it had "a national title and a televised event" - Nathan's backed "a national title and a televised event" BECAUSE people committed to competitive gluttony before Nathan's did so; it was cost-effective marketing for Nathan's.

Sure, the Nathan's stupidity in the '70s made competitive gluttony more popular, but we've been doing this kind of bullshiat since the 19th century.

Back in the before times I'd get together with the guys every Wednesday night for dinner at a local coney joint.  Some nights when I couldn't decide what to have, I'd have one Detroit coney, one sauerkraut and mustard, and their take on a "Chicago-style".

The second time I did this, I referred to this order as a "Joy to the World", and the name stuck.

After all, it was a three dog night.

I don't think that I could eat three at dinner any more.

I'm not sure about hot dogs, but I almost did myself in with Chef John's sticky ribs last night.  I didn't sleep all night, and I'm thinking I'll skip eating today heh.

I know, I sound fat.  I typically agree with the suggestion to go be fat elsewhere, but this IS the food tab, and I'm only slightly fat.

I was just chatting with a friend on the other food tab how a picture is worth 1000 words, colloquially speaking, and OTOH how a thousand pictures could be described in a word

/ I like your comment. the key word being " failed "

// so, like in the same ball park

I guess it would take only one if it were a particularly sexy or erotically talented hotdog.

I had started a reply pointing out that if you buy the 'institutional packs' (like 4-5lbs each) you can get them in a variety of sizes, but got distracted and forgot to submit it hours ago.

I know that you can get them from 2/1 (two per pound) to 10/1 (ten per pound), and I think it might go to 14/1 or smaller.

I'm sure that many of us could put away a dozen cocktail weenies even if we couldn't finish two half-pound dogs.
 
2022-07-05 2:15:31 PM

You, of all farkers, noit. Gorby done good with glasnost&perestroika. But he did lose command and control.

Actually, I didn't summon you personally, Bukharin. Mikhail done that he did, and too good effect, too, I might add.

Where have you been getting your brats from? Some homeless guy living out of an old hot dog cart?

3
1 lodged in my throat
1 cut in half and shoved up each nostril
1 straight up the pooper

The last one is only necessary to distract me enough for you to manage the first to.
