Why are weiners sold by the dozen , and buns sold in sixes?
This really bugs me

Well, that's not so bad. Two packages of buns will cover you. It's when the packages of buns come in eights! Now that's what I hate!

True, but I live on vancouver island, so I am completely into re-cycling. Its a waste of space and packaging to have to buy 2 packages. Speaking of which, Victoria has a great website for re-cyclers. Anything you wanna get rid of, just post there and sure enough somebody out there wants it..Its like the old days going to the dump, except this way there is alot less odor :P I just helped a friend on the weekend pickup a perfectly good greenhouse for nothing....now those wieners in a tin...scary stuff..nuff said...they call them vienna something...they should send them back on the oil tanker they arrived on....ehm..thats my whine...

are we talking about recycling still? you could easily regurgitate those little puppies and place them on the plate again i have...no one even noticed.

'member the canned ham spread you use to be able to buy. my mom would buy it and bring it out on 'special' occasions. god. i can't believe i survived my childhood. it looked and smelled like dog food. maybe it was and she was just jestin' with me. gulp. [/code]

Grandma always called that canned meat (Klik, Spam, whatever), "Crushed donkey ." It was a lunch-time staple at her house.

Why don't you just buy your weiners in bulk? Less packaging and you can buy however many matches the buns you buy.

whoa there rev, that's way too confining to us at here. we like to buy a twelve pack and then have the eight buns...makes our life interesting. it's something i have never thought of doing, how about you pea, buying the weiners in bulk and then matching them up to the buns? must be a prairie thing, that organized and dealing in reality.

buy wieners in bulk omg omg...what a concept...who has been fondling them ask yourself that question???? and they got that melted plastic on them...like plastic cheese...ya those kraft slices...ehm...where's the cheese in the kraft cheese slices ...omg...I am gonna hurl again....green tea...ya green tea time ...and a bunnypants cookie or two :P


Pssst......Rev....galaniomama only like sex in bulk...

#12
both of you are subjecting me to way too much info......and i am not on the receiving end of it either... weiners in bulk and sex in bulk. hmmm, i will have to ponder this one.
 
Reverend Blair

The plastic is so you can take off the part that's been fondled, Peapod. It's also thin enough that it doesn't create any more waste per dozen than the plastic packaging of a dozen.

I love buying things in bulk...it gives me the choice of how much I want. That's why Mrs. Rev doesn't take me shopping...I spend the whole time at the deli counter buying pastrami and corned beef.

Well, I dont know much about weiners, but what I always wondered is:

If a sheep is a ram, and a donkey's an ass - how come a ram up the ass is a goose???

It depends on the bun size. I just stuff two hot dogs into the oversized buns,but then I like more meat than bun.Or, I just use the extra weiners to make beans and weiners. Down here, they do sell buns in 12 packs and 8 packs.

Tube steak. Intersting stuff that. Full of....body parts not easily sold otherwise. Although I do very much like the intestine bag they come in. Yummi! Bulk weiners taste better. Although I haven't had a REAL hotdog in a long time. We mostly eat tofu or veggie dogs now.

My grandmother would always invite us over for tongue soup and tongue sandwhiches. Disgusting. I'd have been tempted if it hadn't actually looked like a cow tongue!

spam. Fried. delicious. Bologna fried. Very good. Especially when you're low on sulphites and preservatives. Must maintain proper levels or you might get old.

Well I guess I have not had a REAL hot dog either in a long time. I eat the veggie and tofu dogs to. You cannot even tell the difference, I have tired it on a few confirmed carnivors. They did not know they were even eating a veggie dog :P St. Ives makes the best.
Oh! pandora's box telling people twila, how those weiners are made "mechanically deboned" has a whole new meaning for me now Yummy :P

I still eat meat, chicken---free range only!, I eat real fish...the ones that don't eat pellets. I eat a steak sometimes...but I get any beef from a local butcher. Really do people really eat meat everyday? I don't know anyone that does.

I eat meat every single day, Peapod. So do most people I know. Not usually hot dogs though. I like those big smokie dogs they sell off carts downtown....smother 'em in onions and mustard and there are few things tastier.

I agree. They are the best. My daughter likes them better then the real deal too. Thankfully! With veggie dogs you don't even need worry about a "rounded" meal. They're loaded with good stuff! I couldn't imagine eating meat with every meal.

I'm a roast beef fan myself (actually just the gravy part with yorkshire pudding). Can't do the steak thing. Childhood trauma/tough steak/long night at the table.
