$69 hot dog one for the record books

-A A +A
By John Pawlak

I really don’t even know where to begin with this one.  I was reading one of those side stories off the home page of a news site about a hot dog.  Yeah, a hot dog, but not the kind that you or I might eat. It was a $69 hot dog.  Grilled in white truffle oil and topped with duck foie gras, tourists can enjoy this overpriced hot dog while being laughed at by New York residents who find the whole idea a bit hard to digest.
The gist of the story was that this wacky wiener is now in the Guinness Book of World Records for being the most expensive hot dog ever. Knowing that there are people out there willing to fork over $69 for a foie gras grease special of the week somehow makes me feel superior in a comforting way. But seriously, you can’t even enjoy a good chili on a thing like that.
