It's A Hot Dog *And* A Hamburger!

Don't you just love the Internet? Just when you've thought you've seen it all, something else comes along and beats that convention up, like it owes it money.

First, do you remember that Saturday Night Live commercial?

"It's a floor wax."

"It's a desert topping."

"It's a floor wax!"

"No, it's a desert topping!"

"Well, you're both right, it's a floor wax and a desert topping."

Well, here's the summer barbecue equivalent to that, a "hot dogie-burger." It seems that back in 1963, "Better Homes And Gardens" put together a book called "Better Homes and Gardens: Barbecues and Picnics." In it was a recipe for a hot-dogie burger. That's right, gum your colon up twice as fast, with only half the effort.

Stephanie Butler at resuscitated this recipe and she took pictures of it. Actually, the cooked result doesn't look half bad, though I don't have a barbecue or a yard to try this out. Maybe it's time to finally break down and get a hibachi.

BTW, shouldn't that be spelled "d-o-g-g-i-e?" Like Doggie Diner?

Or like "Augie Durante?" Er, "Augie Doggie?"
