Stolen Franks

I cheerfully stole this photo of Mr. Sinatra from Kelly Hogan. She uses it to help explain why she might be coming around on her famous aversion to the man. Read her interesting reflections! Speaking of stolen franks, ha ha! Some kids in Iowa boosted a 400-pound anthropomorphic hot dog statue and drove around with it until they became "'creeped out' by its leer." Read all about that, too! I first came across this news in the "gawker," where some commenters were concerned about the way the hot dog was licking its lips as it applied ketchup to its own head. I argue that the hot dog does not want to consume itself! I think it is merely expressing the effort and determination with which it is engaged in its decorative chore.
