Snapshot - The Hot Dog

I initially titled this shot "Easy Rider". [Peter Fonda, eat your heart out.]

Now, I have to call it Ride of The Hot Dog.

Jenny saw the picture, zeroed in on The Varmint's luxurious neck roll and said three words which will forever be immortalized here:

"Nice hot dog."

 The Hot Dog has now become part of the vernacular. Everyone who's anyone knows about The Hot Dog (or The 'Dog if you're REALLY with it).

Optimal usage comes when someone's head is tilted at an odd angle, thereby plumping the neck roll while simultaneously allowing you egress. You can then pinch the roll between finger and thumb and say, "Got yer Hot Dog!"

Personally, I like to say "Got yer Hot Dog, heeya!" as if I were hawking dogs at the stadium. You know, sort of with a New York accent. I just think it gives it a bit more panache.
