#10: Ball Park Uncured Beef Franks* How did they not rate “Farmer Fugly’s All-Natural Pig Lips and Ankle Cartilage Flesh-Colored Filipino Franks”?* Jeeze Louise – with most of these it takes longer to say the brand than it does to eat the hot dog.* Thanks, but I’d prefer not to have a hot dog with “snap”.* The judges carried out their duties with relish.* What’s with the “uncured” franks? If I’m eating a hot dog, I’d like to know there’s a cure out there.* The New York Times is getting like a hot dog: Lots of filler.
