    That just leaves the “who wants cheese?” question…

    It would be better to put a koobideh kabab in a hotdog bun

    Wow.  You could cram pretty much anything into that mold.

    Now I can finally stop rolling my own! Think of all the time I’ll save.

    When cooked, won’t they look like turds?

    Garbage in, garbage out. Most impulse buyers… er, customers, are probably unlikely to use it thrice and just go back to packs of H-dogs.

    These are a staple in my home town. Pack the beef full of Greek spices, bake in a special sauce, and pile on mustard, cheese and onions. Use to eat a half-dozen of these at a time in my youth. Now, more than one results in Fujiyama-level gastrointestinal calamity.

    If I only could find some ground beef that hasn’t been recalled…

    Wow, Bob Dobbs was right.  Watching the slow implosion of our culture really *does* takes it’s toll on even the stoutest of minds…

    Almost as cool as the 70′s Hot Dog Cooker…called the “Hot Dogger”.

    You put the hot dog inbtween a set of electrode spikes…and then plugged it in. The current would flow between the hotdog and electrocute and cook them.

    Oh just take a 50 cent length of PVC pipe; pack it full of meat and then push it out the end.
