Hot Dogs Kill Your Family
It’s the end of the world as we know it when doctors begin to worry less about the fat and sodium content of hot dogs and starts attacking the structural form of the hot dog. Quoted in an article from USA Today, the director of the Center for Injury Research and Policy says that “if you were to take the best engineers in the world and try to design the perfect plug for a child’s airway, it would be a hot dog.” Maybe this is more of a concern for Banksy, since he’s got a brood of his own, but it’s pretty upsetting when we’re turning our attention away from the real child-killer: those damn plastic bags, which are death-traps freely dispensed at every store you visit. Wait a minute, scratch that–being the good librarian I am, I just checked the National Center for Health Statistics and it looks like motor vehicle accidents are the top cause of death for children. But if you’ve got a kid eating a hot dog in a car, then you’re looking at a serious problem . . . .
