My idea of a hot dog is a frankfurter with onions in a roll so although its a sausage I would not say its sandwich.

Incidentally Wimpy has changed the name of their bender sausages to frankfurters, I wonder why lol.

According to the song 'We built this city' (on sausage rolls)

A "sausage roll" is "a cylindrical piece of pork wrapped,
in a puff pastry case"

And that's NOT a hot dog!! lol

Isn't a hot dog/frankfurter sausage normally served in a single partially sliced roll the size and shape to fit it.
A sandwich is made with a filling of whatever between 2 separate slices of bread.
A hot dog isn't that so it can't be called a sandwich.

For many centuries, hot dog has been a South Korean popular meal.
In South Korea, although in 2018 killing dogs to eat them was made illegal, eating dog meat (not meat for dogs) isn't illegal.

If I were given a wish for my final meal, then it would include sausages, despite them being unhealthy! But a beefburger would do.

A beef burger is big and fat
A sausage is but skimpy;
So this is how your world will end:
Not with a banger but a Wimpy.

Hot dogs hold their origins in ancient Egypt and it has been established that, in ancient Egyptian culture, eating hotdogs guaranteed a safe route to the afterlife.

Only Pharaohs or similarly anointed royalty were permitted to squeeze mustard along the length of a hotdog to guarantee, on their death, safe passage across the lake of the dead en route to their place in the heavens.

When Harold Carter discovered the tomb of Tutankhamen, a wheeled ritual trolley adorned with hieroglyphics was first assumed to be a receptacle for holding the King's personal chattels but later examination, (and deciphering), revealed that the object was a portable hotdog stand with a, (translated), "Stop me and buy one" message adorning its horizontal surfaces.

3,300 years later, that same phrase can be seen on hotdog, ice cream and hamburger stands all across the planet, proving just how influential and inspirational ancient Egyptian culture has remained.

Well as i am not keen on hotdogs or burgers then i have no hope for a safe passage in the afterlife.

Something else in my life that is not going to happen ha ha
