Now, here’s a delicious recipe from Mettja C. Roate’s The New HOTDOG Cookbook, courtesy of Dan Savage and the year 1968.

Hot Dog Rib Liners

10 hot dogs
2 cups chopped, roasted, lean pork
2/3 cup grated sharp American cheese
1/4 cup grated onion
1/3 cup mayonnaise
12 hamburger buns, halved

Chop the hot dogs until they are the consistency of coarse corn meal. Add the chopped, roast pork, cheese and grated onion. Add the mayonnaise and mix all thoroughly.

Scoop out a portion of the dough from the top half of the hamburger buns, leaving about a 1/2-inch wall. Fill this cavity with a portion of the hot dog mixture. Cover with the bottom half. Wrap each bun in aluminum foil.

Place the foil-wrapped sandwiches in a 375 degree oven for 15 minutes. Serve piping hot.

also in more mundane local news bike activists disrupted the mayor's stupid transit pr to push him toward real alternatives rather than cheap pr.

@#1, apprently Gonzo resigning is not really news in Stranger world. I am sure he needs to spend more time with his family though.

I'm sure Al had a pretty golden parachute as well.

Re: MTV. They are flailing and desperate at this point, and so behind the curve in their online presence that they just keep re-structuring and restructering again and again. I love the idea of a poet laureate, but that's not going to save them, I'm afraid.

And I love the vaudeville hot dog picture. I'm dancing a cakewalk as I type!

Tolkien's family name goes back to 18th century Saxony and the Germanic name "Tollkühn" ("daring"). He (pron. TOL-KEEN) sometimes used the pseudonym "Oxymore," reflecting the contradictory literal translation of his name's Germanic components: toll + kühn = foolish + brave, or "stupidly clever."
