It just takes one to say, "Enough is enough."

Finally!!! Duh! I mean, why did it take so long for someone to do this?

*zips out to supermarket*

Hot dogs and buns for dinner - my house!!! No extra buns permitted! hee, hee, I said buns!

We always just used regular ol' bread. We were so deprived. I still do it though.

"More than 2 million buns a year are wasted"

so true....in so many ways....

Hot dogs now are sold eight to a pack, and buns are sold with six or 12 in a pack, the news release stated.

Ahem... bulls**t! Where I shop the dogs are 10 to a pack, and the buns 8! I always have extra dogs!

Plagarism Alert

Did you hear that McD's is coming out with a new sandwich called The Jacko? 46 year old meat in 12 year old buns.

Thank you Mr. Leno

every dog has a breaded mate

What a nice turn of a phrase. This might get them in trouble with the "spay and neuter" people though. Oh wait, br-eaded. Missed the 'r'. Never mind.

Stocker: Sir, what are you doing?
George Banks: I'll tell you what I'm doing. I want to buy eight hot dogs and eight hot dog buns to go with them. But no one sells eight hot dog buns. They only sell twelve hot dog buns. So I end up paying for four buns I don't need. So I am removing the superfluous buns. Yeah. And you want to know why? Because some big-shot over at the wiener company got together with some big-shot over at the bun company and decided to rip off the American public. Because they think the American public is a bunch of trusting nit-wits who will pay for everything they don't need rather than make a stink.

That's such a great movie

hee, hee! Eleanor also said "hot dog". And — hee, hee! — so did I.

That's the most rational thing I've heard today! Are you sure it's not a hoax?

If ever the twain shall meet..........

If ever the twain shall meat..........

actually, it was never really a problem for our big family.

we always just bought 10 packages of buns and 8 packages of franks at a time.

so we always had 80 buns and 80 franks.

where else can you find 80 franks in one place at the same time, other than a phone book?

We always made garlic bread out of the extra buns.

Sondra --

My mom also made garlic bread out of the extra buns.

They are also good for peanut butter sandwiches for the little ones. Easier to hold.

Of course you must buy the best quality hot dogs and buns you can find.

No Martha, you must make your own hot dogs and buns

The local remedy: Instead of hot dog buns, take a slice of bread. Use a table knife to impress two lines about a hot dog width apart, equidistant from the side of the slice. Insert dog, fold along "dotted lines".

The other local rememdy - buy 6 buns and brats that come 6 to a pack, as do the brews to drink while prepping, cooking, and eating. Forget the dogs.

MMMmmmm, Vienna beef ... *gargle* *gargle*

I want you to hold it between your knees!

Hot Dogs are so GROSS!

Must only buy Hebrew National, Sarah J!!!!

but how will we teach kids about 'least common multiples' now?

I used to have an old MAD Magazine book of "MAD's Letters to the Editor." One of the letters was about how there were different numbers of hotdogs and rolls in packages. MAD advised the reader to buy 8 packages of hotdogs, and 10 packages of rolls, and it would all work out evenly. LTT, you must have been that letter-writer!

The way it was explained to me is that there are 10 dogs to the package, but, inevitably two would roll off the grill and onto the ground to be snatched up by a boa constrictor I mean a dog. So, eight buns are all you will use.

We just leave the extra buns in the fridge until we cook hot dogs the next summer.

The culinary world must be COMPLETELY stunned today, because now no one can "be creative" with the other buns!

Proof that diplomacy can work to solve major world problems!


Being creative with buns is illegal in many states.

So, the hot dog industry and the bread industry have finally decided to work together.

Send those negotiators to Bagdad!


What is this green stuff on my hotdog bun? It's tasty!

Excellent Odd Couple reference Oscar!

It is amazing to me that this was NOT the lead story in all the news media. Why would they talk about war and politics when they have the hotdog-bun issue finally solved!

I hope they also more clearly differentiate the "bun length" hot dogs from the basic hot dogs, or somehow standardize the system, maybe with color coding. As it is, the confusing state of the hot dog and bun market caused my wife to open the cabinet one day and announce, "Uh-oh. The buns aren't bun length."

Shoot. There goes my best bit of observational humor. That joke kills!

ATTN: "friendly links" is porn - do not click on name!!!!!

Yeah, the "continue to improving it" sounds a little off, even for our casual language on the blog ... good eye, El ...

I used to make my kid tuna sandwiches on the extra buns, fits fine in lunch bag...

Isn't "hot dog" an oxymoron?

"Dogs To Buns" wbagnfarb

It's good to see that this centuries-old scam has finally been rectified. Huh huh. Rectified.
