    The whole thing is a major promo for Nathan's. Getting ESPN to foot the bill is kraut on top of the hot dob (like ocong on the cake).

    There are the very wealthy who go yacht racing, and who own multiple homes, some of which go unused for consecutive months, and in cities where many are homeless.

    I consider this mostly entertainment, even if crudely done. I was there around 2009 or so. At 10am, the line goes about 10-15 rows deep. Nathans' marketing team knows what it's doing. In health-conscious times, this is one thing whose time has not passed.

    I'd posted that yesterday under the ugly pic of Joey in action. It was the Sean Delonas editorial toon in the 7/5 edition of The Post.

    The link got broken somehow. You can see it by going to:

    Find "Delonas cartoon". They have about 15 years of editorial cartoons, chosen by year, month and date.

    Imagine how much pulverized grizzle, fat, lung, ear, nose and cartilage it took to make all those barkers.

    The thing about that pic is that, while it's not a totally accurate description of what actually happened (soggy buns, etc), the way those guys are going at the hot dobs, is definitely accurate as to what people THINK happened.

    Sean Delonas is always outrageous in his editorial pix (he definitely "GOES THERE"), and has been for many years.

    Luckily, the soapbox has been shackled, so we'll have to agree to disagree. To each their own is all I'll say.

    I see that you've saved some SD pix, so let's just return to the Hot Dob thread and let the PS posts go by the wayside. The SD pic that I'd posted was about Hot Dibbity Dobs, not the electoral and/or social politicking.
