JAPA_DOG the star of the Olympics

From what I have  read the big star of the Winter Olympics in Vancover is a Japanese Hot Dog vendor.
 
People are waiting in line for over an hour for a JAPADOG-----
 
What's a Japadog you ask----well it is one of 4 they offer----
 
 
A Terimayo ----the top seller is an all beef dog with teriyaki sauce, Jap mayo, Fried onions and seaweed.
 
and if that doesn't get ya the Oiconomi might---that's a pork dog with the mayo/fried cabbage & Fish Flakes.
 
The other two I didn't hang around long enough to find out about.
 
 
Would you stand in line for as long as an hour and 1/2 and pay top dollar for a JAPADOG---no, me either.
 
But the video on AOL shows the line going half way back to California.

    Don't you mean WWII ?? ----Or as Bluto exclaimed in the Epic Movie Classic, "Animal House", "Did you say "over"? Nothing is over until we decide it is! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Hell no!"

    I made a point of finding Japadog when I went to Vancouver two years ago.  I was shattered to discover that the day I chose to buy one the cart wasn't there.  Undaunted, however, I returned the next day and Japadog had returned to its customary location.  It was worth the effort.  Unique, delicious, satisfying, and inexpensive.  What a great combination!

    Meaning no disrespect to either you or The Ancient Mariner, but he would need to be at least 90+ years of age to be on the planet now!
    God Bless him if he is! But my guess is that he is a much younger man than that----but who knows for sure other than the Ancient Mariner hmself!!

    WWI ended 11/11/1918

    If someone was 18 years of age and in Germany fighting on that day it would mean they were born in 1900----------got it so far ???????

    Now using your trusty calculator subtract 1900 from 2010 -----that's right 110.

    There ain't nobody on Roadfood 110,  unless it is Michael Hoffman.
     
    Besides which we weren't fighting the Japs in WWI.

    I got to Japan itself a month after the war ended----- 

    And, there were no Japadog carts anywhere in sight.  So I can
    not give a first hand review.  The Mediator has been to BC and
    says the dogs are good, AOL showed a long line of hungry folk
    waiting for them---that's all I can tell ya---that's the name of that tune.

    Look for Japadog in your town soon-----the news is out.

    I always thought you were older than Hoffman, but I guess we'll have to start calling you Junior. :)
