Believe it or not, the government is about to regulate the shape of hot dogs. Bureaucrats at the Food and Drug Administration, the Department of Agriculture and the Consumer Product Safety Commission are studying how to change the shape of hot dogs to prevent youngsters from choking. As a result, recent headlines have warned about "killer hot dogs" and "Doctors urging for a safer, choke-free hot dog."
It's true that compared to some other foods, hot dogs seem to present a slightly higher risk. Of the 66 to 77 choking deaths for children younger than 10 in 2006, hot dogs reportedly accounted for about 11 to 13 deaths. But this claim of relative risk isn't conclusive because there has been no attempt to account for the fact that children might be eating more hot dogs than other types of food.

Hot dogs are extremely dangerous weapons:
Let’s see—if your mother cuts the weiner into little bite size pieces, I guess that would make them less of a death trap, wouldn’t it? (Unbelievable! Let’s get the first lady all over this.)
How about they change the hotdog into an oreo cookie shape and the oreo into a hotdog shape and make everyone unhappy.
Ban the straws in cups at McD’s while your at it, dumba$$es.
They are about to reinvent the hamburger.
When hotdogs are outlawed, only outlaws will have hotdogs!
Time for a Blue-Ribbon Commission, a UN investigation,
and an EU and Obama edict.
MEANWHILE illegal aliens rape and murder more than
80,000 children a year. No problem there, because
the White House and Congress want this.
Here is one of the death mobiles used by the Hot Dog Industrial Complex.
My list continues to grow of things I need to stockpile as they are soon to be VERBOTEN in what was once America:
Gold & Silver
Cigarettes (for bartering)
Hot Dogs (2/26/10)
TOPIC: Why do hot dog BUNS come in packs of 8, while hot dogs come in pack of 10?
Talk amongst yourselves...
They should make hot dogs flat and round. And maybe call it bologna. Funny name but I think it will catch on.
Chew your food!
Im extremely sorry for the children that have died from eating a hot dog. But, come on 77 deaths in a population of over 300 million give me a break. Please, government leave us the hell alone.
That is way too simple.
We need regulations. Hundreds of them from our overlords regulating the size and shape of hot dogs.
It's for the children.
How about cutting the dog up into little bitty pieces, like I use to do for my daughter. Or not serving them hot dogs at all. What a waste of money. Can’t people just think on there own? Do we have to have a government study for every stupid thing in the world???
bologna doesnt taste the same not since it went dolphin free..
