Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.

So: Have you ever used a pair of chopsticks to eat a hotdog?

Until a few days ago, neither had I. But I did it: Plucked the weiner right off the barbecue grill with the same utensils that I had just used on the sushi tray. Somewhat tricky maneuver, but I managed to not drop it.

Anything for a thrill.

The only downside was that I couldn’t eat said hotdog with a bun. I guess if I ever go on an Atkins kick, I’ll have an elegant way to avoid the bread during cookouts.

  1. Someone didn’t listen to the lecture on cross-contamination in health class :-)

  2. I subscribe to the Friedrich Nietzsche school of food safety: That which does not kill me can only make me stronger. (Of course, Nietzsche died at age 56, so maybe that’s not an ideal long-term guide…)

  3. This all sounds vaguely euphemistic somehow. Gross.

  4. “Somehow”? Ehh, get your mind of the gutter…

    And you made me have to look up “euphemistic” in the dictionary; like I’m not busy enough.
