The 4th of July. Hot Dog!

July 4, 2014

The 4th of July. Hot Dog!
Many Americans will celebrate this Independence Day by ingesting a batter-like slurry of pork and/or beef meat taken off the bone by advanced meat recovery machinery (AMM) and mixed with potassium lactate, sodium diacetate, sodium erythorbate, corn maltodextrin, sodium nitrate, and paprika extract, then forced into tubes for processing.

Patriotic citizens will heat the slurry-filled tubes over glowing little pillows of carbonized sawdust and petroleum distillates, place them in enriched flour buns moistened with a paste of ground yellow mustard seeds mixed with acetic acid and turmeric, and garnish them with many tiny cubes of chemically preserved cucumber dyed an improbable green with FD&C Yellow #5. Then they’ll eat them.

Yum!

The National Hot Dog & Sausage Council says Americans will eat 7 billion hot dogs this summer, 150 million of them on Independence Day. So enjoy our National Food, and have a safe and happy 4th of July.

“If the National Hot Dog and Sausage Council is right, Americans will eat enough hot dogs at Major League Baseball stadiums this season to stretch from Nationals Park to the Arizona Diamondbacks’ Chase Field in Phoenix.

Nearly 21.4 million hot dogs will be eaten, the trade group says. And we’ll eat another 5.5 million sausages.”

– “Hail to the ballpark hot dog: We’ll eat 21M this year,” Jeff Clabaugh, Washington Business Journal

The 4th of July. Hot Dog!

The 4th of July. Hot Dog!
Many Americans will celebrate this Independence Day by ingesting a batter-like poultry product (made by forcing bones and attached edible tissue through a sieve under high pressure) blended with a slurry of pork and/or beef meat taken off the bone by advanced meat recovery machinery (AMM) and mixed with potassium lactate, sodium diacetate, sodium erythorbate, corn maltodextrin, sodium nitrate, and paprika extract, then forced into tubes.

These will be heated over glowing little pillows formed of carbonized sawdust and petroleum distillates and placed in enriched flour buns moistened by a paste of ground yellow mustard seeds mixed with acetic acid and turmeric, then garnished with cubes of chemically preserved cucumber dyed an improbable green with FD&C Yellow #5.

Yum!

Enjoy our National Food, and have a safe and happy 4th of July.

Dog vs. Dog

August 18, 2011

Dog vs. Dog

In 2009, Oscar Mayer ran an ad campaign claiming its Jumbo Beef Franks beat out Ball Park Franks in a national taste test. Ball Park Franks manufacturer Sara Lee countered by claiming that Oscar Mayer did not cook Ball Park wieners correctly during the tests and falsely stated that its Oscar Mayer tube steaks are “100 percent pure beef” when they are not.

Sara Lee is suing Kraft, accusing the rival firm of “willful, false, misleading, deceptive, defamatory, and unfair commercial advertising.” The suit has reached U.S. District Court in Chicago, and newspapers have been serving up hot, juicy puns:
