In Fact, It Doesn’t Do What It Says On The Tin

Today I found another product in the Ye Olde Oake range:

72 % chicken??

That’s not a hot dog. It’s a not dog.

I cry fowl.

  1. Brine! So DP is of Germanic origin, and I’ve asked him at least twice whether he’s ever seen hot dogs in brine. This is a man whose grandfather kept pickled pig’s feet in a jar (mostly to horrify DP’s little sister), a person who calls Scrapple (pig innards and cornmeal, all of dubious origin) the queen mother of breakfast meats. Each time he sneers, “no,” and shudders.

  2. Of couirse…that leaves room for the 28% SCURF that distinguishes the best cocktail weenies (“on a stick”–that’s what kills me)!

Whatcha got?
