Why Octodogs
The hotdog is among the top ten items found in many lists concerning choking occurrences in young children. Pediatricians recommend slicing a hotdog linearly. The method of slicing a hotdog linearly can reduce the chances of choking during consumption. A sliced hotdog is a safer way to serve hotdogs to children. Octodogs are not only fun, but may be a safer way to serve hotdogs. Use Octodog’s Frankfurter converter and create Octodogs to add fun to any:
- party - birthday - backyard cookout - picnic - camping trip - occasion Octodogs can bring fun to just about any meal!
The list goes on… Surprise your guests serve Octodogs!

I found this on some random foodie website whilst eagerly searching the internet in the hopes of looking busy at my current job, because I have absolutely nothing to do - at all! I've been reduced to busy work and will soon no doubt be moved to the basement with the roaches, but they can't take away my red stapler, that is property belonging solely to me and not the behemoth which rules the retail sector of the world.

The term "foodie" means: a person having an avid interest in the latest food fads
food·ie Pronunciation: \ˈfü-dē\ Function: noun Date: 1982

I think that term has been stretched beyond reasonable doubt WAY past it's original interpretation.
I love food, I love to eat and cook it and also I love to cook for others to enjoy as well. However, I do not consider myself a foodie. This is a higher distinction made available only to those who really dive into the sauce of food - not one who creates a hot dog cutter upper for the amusement of very small children and high middle age people.
