Bun Length Hotdogs

I was talking with some of my family, and we came up with a great idea.  We were discussing a single-slice Toaster that I saw at a courtesy room at a meeting being held at a resort.  The length of the single slot was too long for a single piece of bread or bagel, even the fancy style bread, but not long enough to hold two slices side-by-side.  We theorized that it was maybe designed to be able to toast a hot-dog bun.  Then, we came up with this idea...

You know how they make Bun-Length hot dogs, that extend just beyond the edge of a hotdog bun so that you don't run out of meat when you get to the end of eating the dog?  Well, what if you like the extra size of the Bun-Length Hot Dog, but you prefer to have enough bun to hold more toppings on either end?   So, they should make a new item...

The Bun-Length Bun.   This would be longer than a normal bun, so that when used with a Bun-Length Hotdog it would give you the same ratio of hotdog to bun that a normal Bun gives you with a normal Hot Dog.

Ok, so that defeates the original purpose of the bun-length dog.  Now we came up with another idea that holds to the original purpose.  This time, it is for those interested in saving money.  Why did they lengthen the dog to fit the bun, instead of shortening the bun to fit the dog?   So there should instead be Hot-Dog Length Hot-Dog Buns.  These buns would be shorter, so that when a regular hotdog is put in them, it fills it the same way that a bun-length hotdog fills a normal bun.   It would have less meat, and be more economic particularly for serving large groups.

Ok, so next we came up with the greatest of all the ideas.  What if someone likes the size of the Hot-Dog Length Bun, but wants a Hotdog that fits it the same was a regular hotdog fits a regular bun?   So we invented the Hot-Dog Length Hot-Dog, which is the right size to fit on a Hot-Dog Length Bun in the standard ratio.  The Hot-Dog Length Hot-Dog is thus actually shorter than a regular Hot-Dog.   And, as a bonus, you could get a Bun-Length-Bun and put two Hot-Dog-Length Hot-Dogs in it end to end, to get a Super Double-Mini Hotdog.

My new RPG Blog

I've started a new blog to document the development of a tabletop card/board-game RPG that I've been working on.  Check it out, at 8-bit Dice.
