“The premise was, let’s do something so over-the-top and bougie,” he said. “We called it the #1 douchebag fried rice.”

A restaurant's $72 fried rice was a runaway hit. It was also the chef's nightmare. Lily, a Vietnamese restaurant in San Francisco, started the luxurious rice as a limited-run joke. Months later, nobody was laughing

Yeah, but every hot dog eaten would've extended the Spin Doctors 15-minutes of fame by 3.2 days, so, its kind of a wash.

Also love that my alma mater is getting down to the real research we need.  ;D

If I'm reading this right, you can extend your lifespan by adding peanut butter and jelly to your hotdog. All in.

Are you implying a hot dog is a sandwich?

A hot dog is a sandwich

A sandwich is a taco

Therefore, a hot dog is a taco

The Unlikely Rise of the French Tacos

French tacos are tacos like chicken fingers are fingers. Which is to say, they are not tacos at all. First of all, through some mistranslation or misapprehension of its Mexican namesake, the French tacos is always plural, even when there’s only one, pronounced with a voiced “S.” Technically, the French tacos is a sandwich: a flour tortilla, slathered with condiments, piled with meat (usually halal) and other things (usually French fries), doused in cheese sauce, folded into a rectangular packet, and then toasted on a grill. “In short, a rather successful marriage between panini, kebab, and burrito,” according to the municipal newsletter of Vaulx-en-Velin, a suburb of Lyon in which the French tacos may or may not have been born.
