This post is not about sex, no matter what you’re thinking about the title.  Now that we have that cleared up …. (If you are here for sex, you can move along now.)

I did, however, want a catchy, crazy title in honor of a catchy, crazy piece of advertising Hubby noticed while we were eating chili and cheese dogs at the Dairy Queen a couple of evenings ago. Of course I have a picture. Do you see what I see?

Dairy Queen hot dog box, June 3, 2010.

There’s a wiener dog on the box with a conversation bubble that says, “I wish somebody would put chili and cheese on me.” Seriously? Do you see a wiener dog and automatically think, That dog needs some chili and cheese? (A sombrero, maybe, but chili and cheese? Can you imagine the reaction of the neighborhood dogs?)

Next to the picture of the dog is a little story about … well, let me type it so you can read it.

“Know how the hot dog got its name? In 1906 cartoonist T.A. Dorgan drew a dachshund on an extra long bun and called it a “hot dog.” In response, people started calling dachshunds “wiener dogs,” and now everyone’s confused.”

Regardless of our confusion, have you ever looked at a dog, dachshund or otherwise, and had the urge to eat it? Okay, granted, maybe in some other culture dog is a delicacy, but here in the U.S. of A. we tend to view our dogs as children, so imagining a dachshund with chili and cheese is both funny and strange. Just sayin’. And having the dog imagine it is funnier and stranger still.
