Random Funny From Twitter

Julia here.

My husband found this on Twitter:

The Twitterer: Paul Feig, creator of ‘Freaks and Geeks’ 
The Funny: “Hot dog martinis! Boil two hot dogs 10 minutes, remove hot dogs, discard, pour hot dog water into glass, top with gin, drink, vomit, repeat.” 

HDDM 2010!

Notice the leaping cat!

 

A friend of mine in Albuquerque read about our wiener wonderland adventure event and was very sad she couldn’t be here to join in. She held her very own, one person Hot Dog Death March in downtown ABQ along Route 66! Okay, she only went to one place, through no fault of her own (see one of the pics in the set) and she almost got mobbed when she got home. What a trooper! For Rachel’s full Flicker set, go here.

Thanks so much for joining in from afar, Rachel! 

This gives me C R A Z Y ideas for HDDM 2010!

Hot Dog Haiku Wiener

We had a major Hot Dog Haiku Competition while at Pink’s on Saturday. Seven brave and creative souls stepped up to share their frank-tastic hot dog poetry. It was a tough, tough decision but the Big Winner was Keith and his furry sidekick — their performance transcended the mundane and took us all to a higher level of hot-diggity.

And what did he win? Why the most awesome prize! A squeaky wienie signed by blogger, actor, and all around good geek Wil Wheaton!

In second place was Will Campbell with his call to a higher power: DOG

Big thank you to Chal for taking the video, editing them to length and then posting them online. Thanks also to Mykal Burns for facilitating the Wil Wheaton Wienie signing!

The Flickr Group Is Growing

Kurt&OkiDogThanks to everyone who uploaded pics from the event on Saturday! You can go to the Hot Dog Death March group on Flickr by clicking here.

Keep checking back as more people upload photos. You’ll find such gems as the one shown here of Kurt rethinking his decision to purchase and actually *eat* the Oki-Dog. (Turned out he was A-OK!)

A Big Thank You To Everyone!

THANK YOU from the bottom of our greasy, cholesterol-clogged hearts for all your participation & great energy at the Hot Dog Death March! You all made this party rock!

And more than anyone, thank you to Julia for all your hard work, schlepping, making, buying and just generally kicking hella mad ass. You made the HDDM happen!!!

See you soon, everyone! We’ve got more plans a-brewin’, and plan to have more t-shirts in case you didn’t get one…so check this blog in a few days!

What A Day! What A March!

hotdogandhotdogHOLY COW! What a day we had! Speaking for myself (Julia) I’m wiped out but what a great time we had. Thank you all so much for making it a BLAST! I believe we had up to 50 people at one point! Well done. 

Also a huge thanks to all of you at Pink’s and Oki-Dog and Skooby’s. I don’t think Oki-Dog knew what hit them! 

Lastly, this couldn’t have been done without Lucinda’s amazing energy and ideas and PR! We were all over the papers and blogs and she came up with the great Oki-Dog Cavity Search (Scavenger Hunt). Brilliant!

There will be much more to come and if you have photos you took, please send them to myself or Lucinda or post them to the HDDMLA Flickr group!

Best of all, we received $176 in donations toward a toilet in India! 

Rock the dog!
