    Oh, that’s just loco to do the human justice system on an insect. As for the Buddhist statue compared to Lady Liberty, that’s amazing. Hot dogs’ namesake, I thought it was because it looked like the dog breed dachshund.

    I would not be surprised if hot dogs did have dog meat in them if you went to so parts of the world.

    Not true about the dog meat rumor. They were originally called “hot dachshund” sausages because of their shape.
    A sports reporter saw them at a baseball game, and when reporting on them, couldn’t spell “dachshund.” Therefore, he shortened it to hot dog!

    Did he have a stink bug or a dung beetle for a lawyer?

    Yes humans have put animals on trial and even corpses. They are a funny bunch.

    Not all Muslims do that and you should know it. I know it isn’t so easy to think of but reality is like that.

    I think the trial was just an excuse for catharsis by formalizing a demonstrative punishment. As for the statue, heh, it’s unusual to show Buddha standing, but when you’re going for height…

    My sources, including Snopes, disagree with you on that legend.

    It was, and somebody couldn’t spell dachshund.

    I heard about that. Problem is, nobody can find that article or whatever it was.

    No, the idea that some sports reporter could not spell Dachshund and thus named it Hot Dog is an apocrypha.. Or Urban Legend. Calling them Hot Dogs was in use before then.
    According to Snopes.com Hot Dog was first used to describe a well dressed man and became then also a term for the well beloved sausage in a bun.
