    The former Massachusetts governor and shapeshifting perennial candidate spilled the beans on his hot dog meat habit in a moment captured by The Washington Times, which just published a lengthy profile on Romney, who is running for Senate in Utah: “My favorite meat is hot dog, by the way. That is my favorite meat,” he told a gathering of supporters as they joined him recently for a casual dinner organized by his campaign. “My second favorite meat is hamburger. And, everyone says, oh, don’t you prefer steak? It’s like, I know steaks are great, but I like hot dog best,...

    If you ever wondered what it was like to teach in a high school in the bay area, a high school English teacher gives us a precious glimpse of what it is like in a blog on Quillette. "Last year, at my high school, the students enjoyed arguing if a hotdog is a sandwich, the millennial equivalent of asking how many angels can dance on the head of a pin," S. A. Dance writes. "The hotdog question made its way to the whiteboard in our staff lounge." "By the time I arrived, my colleagues had written their responses. Some argued...

    MENLO PARK, Calif., - A California startup analyzing food on a molecular level announced some hard news about one of the most beloved foods in the United States: 2 percent of hot dogs contain human DNA. Clear Food, the consumer guide wing of Menlo Park startup Clear Labs, said it analysed 345 hot dogs and sausages from 75 brands sold at 10 different retailers and discovered 14.4 percent of the products included ingredients that were not listed on the label. The startup said several of the tested brands had "hygienic" issues. "Hygienic issues occur when some sort of non-harmful contaminant...

    It is Labor Day Weekend, the last gasp for some before the soup/stew/casserole season comes. So, I am interested in knowing how many of you are going to, or already have, enjoyed a 'good hot dog', made the way that 'is the norm' in your region, (and believe I know there are particulars, as per region)? Or have you just 'winged it', and created a new way to enjoy your hot dog? Whether it is grilled, boiled, fried, or steamed, with a flat-cut bun, or a New England style bun, or even just plain slices of white bread, with anything...

    HARRISBURG, Pa., - Former Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell has become the latest high-profile personality to weigh in on the debate over whether a hot dog qualifies as a sandwich. Rendell was asked by an interviewer to weigh in on the subject, which has recently become a topic of heated Internet debate, and he came out in favor of giving sandwich status to hot dogs. "It's got bread," Rendell told WPHT-AM. "Would you put a hoagie in the sandwich category?

    (CONEY ISLAND) Joey Chestnut’s world record shattering total of 66 hot dogs consumed in 12 minutes was overshadowed by Senator Hillary Clinton’s first time participation in today’s annual Coney Island hot dog eating contest. Mrs. Clinton, Democratic Presidential candidate, shoved down a respectable 54 hot dogs, or one for every Republican in the Senate. Although most fans were rooting for Chestnut or six-time champion Takeru Kobayashi, his Japanese rival, to win, Mrs. Clinton did have at least one fan, a woman carrying a sign that read, “If you become President, we’ll eat hot dogs every day.” Although the outcome of...

As you gather with family and friends to munch on those treats fresh off the grill, little did you know that you are destroying the planet according to leftist political orthodoxy. Here is Rebecca Leber of The New Republic as she tries to guilt trip you over hot dog and hamburger carbon emissions:

    Come June 22 and the small city of Yulin, some 780 km southwest of the Chinese capital, comes alive with a food festival. But many people in China and around the world want this festival banned. The reason – dog meat is the main attraction on the menu.

In fact, it is consumed every day. However, activists say the practice was popularised in...

    Anthony Weiner, the former Democratic Congressman who gained wide notoriety by tweeting photos of his genitalia is ready to open a new chapter in his life. Spotting what he characterized as “an unfilled niche in the marketplace,” the ex-pol is set to embark upon a restaurant venture in the Queens borough of New York City. “The wiener, or hot dog, is an under appreciated delicacy,” Weiner maintains. “Too often it is relegated to street corner carts where it is hastily prepared, topped with pedestrian condiments, and carelessly scarfed down by the palate-challenged troglodytes who walk our streets.” “At Chez Weiner...

    Today the National Hot Dog and Sausage Council launched a bracket to determine the Official Hot Dog Condiment Champion. Their bracket separates wet and dry condiments, but in the end there will only be one winner of these 16 competitors: sauerkraut, ketchup, mustard, cole slaw, chili, BBQ sauce, mayonnaise, onions, cheese, tomatoes, sweet peppers, hot peppers, bacon, pickles and pulled pork. John Del Signore refuses to even dignify this "competition" with a comment, but has firmly declared his anti-ketchup stance during some casual office talk. Yakas took his silence as an opportunity to take one last swing for ketchup, however:...
