This Thursday’s Eating Styles poll addresses that age-oldÂ conundrum: what do you do when the last bite of your hot dog consists of only bread and ketchup? Do you throw it away…or eat it?
We’ve all been there – sitting around a campfire, lounging on seldom-used patio furniture at somebody’s grad party, or kneeling awkwardly on a picnic blanket. Family and friends are chatting, children are laughing, dogs are barking, but the only thing that holds our focus is right in front of us…the dreaded last bite of a hot dog. Â Due to a critical lack of communication between the hot dog and hot dog bun industries, our “hot dog” at this point isÂ nothing but a cream puff-sized poof of white bread dotted with ketchup (and maybe a few bits of chili or relish) We find ourselves faced with a tough choice: do we eat it or throw it away?
What do you do, So Good readers? Do you shrug and pop the little bit of bun into your mouth, or throw itÂ disdainfullyÂ onto your baked beans-smeared paper plate? When you come to that last bite of a hot dog, do you eat it or throw it away?
