When choosing the way one eats a hot dog, it is all about preference. Many times I have heard people argue about what is the ONLY acceptable way. I have heard people say that it is blasphemy to put ketchup on their dog. I have heard others cry foul when chili is smothering a hot dog. This is part of a larger issue of people believing that their way is the only way. Playful joking is one thing but when a person refuses to acknowledge another’s preference, they refuse to acknowledge them as an individual.

Don’t ever let anyone tell you how to eat your hot dog!
