Cleats by Bill Hinds for September 03, 2008
Jerome's grandpa: Back in the early part of the 20th century, a sports cartoonist, Tad Dorgan, was at a baseball game, listening to vendors selling sausages in a bun by yelling "get your hot Dachsunds!" Dorgan wanted to work that into one of his cartoons. He wasn't sure how to spell "Dachsunds," so he just wrote "hot dogs." Jerome: Cartoonists don't have to worry about that now because of "spell check." Jerome's grandpa: That's write.
