Did you know that at one time the name “Hot Dog” was banned?
According to a clipping in one of my Grandma’s Scrapbooks, the name was banned in 1913.
The article says that the term was coined in 1900 by T. A. Dorgan. He saw a resemblance of the frankfurter to the tail of a dog.
Dog lovers did not like this and the name was banned at Coney Island.
Of course, we know that this is an accepted name today.
Here we have a stack of hot dogs that have come off the grill.
Our neighbors to the north also like hot dogs. Here are hot dogs and sausages on the grill at my friend John’s house in Toronto. They were part of a great back to school event while I was in Toronto recently.
What do you like on your hot dog?
