Vintage image of the day: The indignity of hot dogs, 4/20/12

Hot dogs suffer a lot of indignity in vintage recipes.  Take a look at some of these and you'll agree that any self-respecting Frank would much prefer a plain bun, hold the kitchen sink.

I need some Alka-Seltzer....

You know the poor dog would just run from home looking at these. It is funny how they tried so hard to dress up that misguided meat. We all know that the hot dog fits in the hand of a 5 yr old just perfect. What else is needed?

No recipe should make a hot dog stand up - they just look nasty! Especially when they're all bendy like that. I'll never look at a hot dog the same way. ;)
