The hot dog is under attack. And the adversary is within its own food group.
Here are some excerpts from a recent press release:
“Move over hot dog, there’s a new favorite at the snack shack. PG Professional Golf, the world’s largest recycled golf ball company and leading green grass supplier, announced the introduction of its new line of Jack Link’s Beef Jerky meat snacks.
“Our Jack Link’s Beef Jerky meat snacks not only provide a healthy alternative, they taste great too! And you don’t have to worry about dripping mustard on your favorite golf shirt.”
Fellas, fellas. Let’s not be jerky about this. This is an easy one.
Hot dog or beef jerky?
We like hot dogs. We like beef jerky. Why deny ourselves? If we want to eat healthy, we can pack our lunch or grab an energy bar.
And is anyone really worried about getting mustard on his (or her) golf shirt? Is there someone who has been wolfing down hot dogs at the turn all these years saying, “I’m glad someone finally came up with an alternative to that messy hot dog. Those mustard stains were affecting my concentration.
“Ever since I switched to beef jerky I’m hitting more fairways and my putting stroke is golden.”
I don’t think so.
The hot dog isn't moving over for anything in the snack shack. That’s where I sit.
