The above pictured monstrosity will probably be showing up at an event near you soon. It’s a hot dog covered with chunks of French fries then coated with batter and deep fried. And it ain’t something I read about at the Indiana State Fair, but a commonly sold item on the streets of Seoul, South Korea. (Click here for more photos)
French fries aren’t the only thing that coat hot dogs in Korea. Kiosk vendors
wrap them in bacon, mashed potato, corn batter or what looked to be seaweed then invariably deep fry them.
And God only knows what kind of oils they’re deep fried in.
Remember this post the next time you recommend a low-carb diet to someone, and that someone tells you that Asians live longer because their diet is primarily rice.
On another note, there are a number of comments that I haven’t gotten to yet and probably won’t until late tonight. I scored tickets to the Dallas – New England Patriots football game today in Dallas. If you watch the game and the TV pans the crowd, look for me (along with wife, son and two grandsons) on the 45 yard line about 6 rows up on the Dallas side. Right now New England is a 4.5 point favorite – if you’re smart, you’ll take Dallas and the points. That’s what I’m doing.
If I don’t get to the comments tonight, it won’t be until late tomorrow. MD and I are flying to the East Coast at the crack of dawn tomorrow morning. On US Air. God help us.
