One additional curious thing about Chicago (TLCIAAMSTBFCR) is that it prides itself on its hotdogs, evidently, yet hotdogs composed wholly of pork are, it seems, unknown.

My father used to work for an industrial contractor. He'd assemble equipment, tear stuff down, fix things that were broken, and so on.

One day he was called to work at a plant that processes paper, and he came across a huge pile of what looked to him like snow. They explained to him that it was bleached paper that had been processed to the finest possible powder.
When he asked them what they did with it, they said they sold it to a hot dog manufacturer for use as filler.
Yum.

I don't quite believe people still eat from street vendors! Emotion: smile

the term "franks and beans,"

Also called "beanie wienies" (spelling?) when served in institutional cafeterias.

I've not seen hot dogs served with buns, only hamburgers. Hot dogs are served with rolls in this part of the world.

In my part of the world the words "bun" and "roll" are used interchangeably.
And yes, a hot dog is not a sausage, because different kinds of sausages are used some use frankfurters, some use vienna sausages and so on.

And in my part of the world the words "frankfurter", "frank", "hot dog", and "wiener" all mean the same thing. When the sausage is served on a roll (or bun) the assembly is normally called a "hot dog", but any of the other terms can metonymically substitute.

The bun here is called a "bun", never a "roll"; Rolls are what you eat with dinner. The package that they come in at the grocery store is labeled "Hot Dog Buns".

I just checked the bread drawer and we have two packages of hot dog buns in there. (Why? Don't ask.) The fresher one is labeled "Long Potato Rolls". The older one, left over from a cook-out two weekends ago (that's why not to ask) is Pepperidge Farm brand and is labelled "Frankfurter Top Sliced Rolls". That label means that, in the odd New England style, the buns are sliced on the top instead of the side. Several people at the cookout were observed ripping the buns open from the side because they didn't realize they were already sliced on top. (Why did she buy top-sliced rolls? Who knows?)

Rolls sliced on top are more convienient. Toppings won't fall out of a top sliced roll.
Pepperidge Farm makes good but pricey products, their Milano cookies are yumilicious.
Maybe it's just my silly engineering approach, but have you considered rotating your roll by 45 degrees (in a direction to put the opening at the top use Lenz's law or the right hand rule or something) either before or after you insert your sausage?

Do they come in a milk carton?

Of course, I meant 90 degrees, pi/2 radians or 100 grads. Now I'm in for it.

Thats the usual technique,but here in New England we try to be practical in our products.
