Did you see him at the Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest? Apparently he has no problem with someone eating 68 hot dogs in 10 minutes as long as they don't wash them down with a large soda.

      I'm sure he got a photo with the Nathan's Mustard Yellow Belt.

        I really don't care much one way or the other how folks treat/abuse their food, but my kids are visiting cousins in Chicago area and sent this just a few minutes ago...

          My son was in Chicago and saw a book titled "Never put ketchup on a hot dog." He bought it for me. I read about half of it. Great book about the history of the hot dog stands and people who owned and patronized them.

              I bought that book for my father who is always giving one of his golfing buddies a hard time about putting ketchup on his dog. He read it then mailed it anonymously to his ketchup loving friend.

                  Prefer slaw on my dog but I'll eat one with the kitchen sink including ketchup.  I'll eat any kind of hot dog.

                    When the zombie appocolypse comes, I'll go down with a gun in one hand and a well ketchuped hotdog in the other.

                      I'm tired of the food elitists. I'll put whatever I want on my food. I'll put ketchup on a dog once in a while at a cookout or something, but usually I do either mustard or horseradish. On a corn dog, it has to be ketchup. I tried it with mustard and hated it. I have to say, potato chips dipped in ketchup are really good though.

                      If putting ketchup on a hot dog takes away the flavor of a perfectly cooked sausage, then what does putting tomato, celery salt, sport peppers, onions, mustard and pickle, or chili and slaw do? (Chicago dogs are my favorite by the way)

                      Who in the hell would destroy ice cream by putting hot fudge on it. Oh my God! That's an abomination!

                        "There are 2 kinds of people who put ketchup on a hot dog. Texans, and mental patients."

                        Name that movie.


                        I don't like ketchup on *anything*, much less a hot dog.

                        I laughed out loud at that part & thought of the thread jorogo posted.
                         
                        Mustard & onions, please.

                              If one wishes to be truly astute about this, the question is not whether one should put mustard or ketchup on their frankfurter, but rather, why is it that people are so seemingly passionate about which condiment belongs on said wiener?
                                While anthropologists have found evidence of very early forms of both mustard and ketchup strewn along the ground at presumed scenes of battle between opposing forces in the cave days, they, alas, have no explanation for the apparent enmity. 
                                There was a period, however, when humankind relented for a few centuries in its turmoil over ketchup vs. mustard, choosing instead to argue about the nature of the deity and how he/she should be worshiped. 
                                Lately, people seem to confuse both arguments. I for one believe in freedom of condiment application. In fact, I think it's in our Constitution.

                                The late great Pulitzer Prize winning Chicago columnist Mike Royko said it better than anyone in a column on November 21, 1995 "No, I won't condemn anyone for putting ketchup on a hot dog. This is the land of the free. And if someone wants to put ketchup on a hot dog and actually eat the awful thing, that is their right. It is also their right to put mayo or chocolate syrup or toenail clippings or cat hair on a hot dog. Sure, it would be disgusting and perverted, and they would be shaming themselves and their loved ones. But under our system of government, it is their right to be barbarians."
