Snicker Saturday...Snack Snick

Hey Everyone!
Wow, it's time again for another chuckle to kick off your weekend!  Last week my Mom was travelling for her work and she stopped at a Dairy Queen for lunch.  (Tough job, right?!? BOL).  So, she orders a hot dog because she's a big kid at heart and when they give her the food, here's what she saw:
So far, so boring...then...

Woah!  What's this?

Yes, this is blurry.   Pttthththhh to Mom for bad camera work.
It says "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 'weiner dogs',
and now everyone's confused."

"I wish somebody would put chili and cheese on me."

We think this is tooooo funny! 
How clever of DQ to use a cute story and even cuter dog on their package.
Hey, Frankie!  What do you think of this?!?!  BOL

Enjoy the weekend.
Grr and Woof,
Sarge, COP

I have always found that particular foodable name very confusing and now I am even more confounded. That said, I wonder if Frankie tastes like chicken.


Frankie Furter and Ernie said...


Do I need to say it again???
I (Frankie Furter) am a DACHSHUND
BADGER HOUND... I say... My breed takes on BADGERS and Squirrels and Ground Moles and stuffs like THAT.. DANGEROUS STUFFS.. SCARY STUFFS... and
these CRAZY PEEPS foolishly confuse US (Dachshunds) with Foods? WHAT is up with that.
I'm gonna find one of those DQ places.. and PEE on the building.
Thanks Sarge fur lettin me know about this... indignity!!!

Did somebody say Hot Dog?! And chile and CHEESE?! Yummmmm. Tell Frankie not to get his shorts twisted over this - he should feel honored that one of America's favorite foods is named after his breed, right? Or vice versa . . . we're confused.

STELLA and RORY from Down Under said...

Sarge, we never heard this story before. Rory is worried they might want something bigger and invent a Great Dog or Dane Dog for people with large appetites. Poor Mr Frankie. Its a lot to put up with. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

Bella Roxy & Macdui said...

Frankie said it all!!!

XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra & Bella

But actually, we think it's funny, too. Thanks for sharing...we never knew the story of hot steaks.

OMG this was awesome - I have to share this with my mom who owns 4 doxies.

Have you tried the snickers ice cream bars?! delish

Oh I bet that Snickers bar was nom, but gee Frankie sure is upset with DQ. His local DQ is gonna be very sorry they did this, I hear that pee can take off the stucco on a house.

Soon we will hear that Frankies local DQ went tumbling down and we will all know the reason behind it too!

Enjoy your Snickers Sarge!

woos, Tessa
