    It’s well known that the is pneumatic tube system underground to deliver burritos from the East Coast to the West Coast quickly. So if there can be a country wide burrito delivery system using pneumatics, it’d be cute to have a country wide hot dog delivery system using railways.

    That is, of course, the Alameda - Weehawken Burrito Tunnel. http://idlewords.com/2007/04/the_alameda_weehawken_burrito_tunnel.htm

    Cute.
    Reminds me of this commercial https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OXkgrWjykSg
    (last line :
    _”And then, the groundhog folds the aluminum foil around the chocolate.
    _ Right.”)
    Awesome link, fleabane !

    Ha, can’t fool me–that’s a hoax! They made one little slip–aluminum foil can’t be accelerated magnetically.

    One flaw in the scenario is that hot dogs are manufactured using different blends of spices and other ingredients to account for local tastes. They may look homogeneous but they’re not.

    “aluminum foil can’t be accelerated magnetically.”

    Check your math. Aluminum conducts electricity.

    “One flaw in the scenario is that hot dogs are manufactured using different blends of spices and other ingredients to account for local tastes.”

    So, your premise is that in order to manufacture hot dogs with different blends of spices, they have to be manufactured in different places?

    Maybe this is a reference to some ad campaign we’re not familiar with?

    I think y’all are overthinking it. A chain of sausage links looks like a train. I’d wager that’s all that’s supposed to be to it.

    What keeps dogs and other animals from eating the hot dogs/sausages as they travel across the land?

    Meryl A @9 : survival instinct ;) ?

    I saw this as connected to the idea that one should never watch hotdogs being made/it’s a real mystery. Look how odd the final step is!

    Christine - Robert likes a cold cut meat that is made and sold in the Lancaster, PA area called Lebanon bologna . (Lebanon being a local community.) It is not like regular bologna - not sure of the difference as I don’t eat either version, but it is a lot darker red in color. He found out that one could go on a tour of the factory. He thought about it and then said “noooo.”

    On the other hand - we have been on the tour in that area of a pretzel factory (which finally convinced him to buy the store brand of the type of pretzel he liked as this was the company he insisted were the superior pretzels and none were like them - and they came off the line and half of them went into the brand name boxes and the other half went into the boxes of the very store brand he refused to buy). We have also been on the tour of Budwiser beer at the factory next to Busch Gardens, the Old Country (Williamsburg, VA) when they gave tours. We were actually once trapped in the beer factory - there was a sudden thunderstorm while we were there and they had to stop the skyway ride back to the theme park.
