Pediatricians are calling for a redesign of the hot dog.
No, I’m not bullshitting you.
Apparently a hot dog is:
The perfect plug for a child’s airway.
Is it, really? A long tubular piece of meat? Are children swallowing these whole?
Now, I don’t have children. But this seems strange.
Oh wait a second. I think these pediatricians mean the small, round coins that parents CUT THE HOT DOGS INTO FOR CHILDREN are a choking hazard.
Here are some ideas for anyone that is concerned:
1) Cut the hot dog in half lengthwise
2) Educate your child on chewing food
3) Don’t feed your child a nitrate filled hot dog if they are too small to chew their own food.
4) Leave my hot dog alone. Seriously.
