The highlight of last night’s “thrilling” 6-0 Flames victory over the Panthers came in the form of precisely nothing to do with hockey and everything to do with hot dog dipping. Specifically, dipping a hot dog into a tub of nacho cheese. Oh, it’s true.
I think what’s so disgusting about this seemingly unexpected invasion was the casual manner in which it was done. It’s as if any food item and the act of dipping and dunking are completely interchangeable and limitless for this pride-lacking duo.
Note: You might want to sit down for this one.
I suppose when a game is a no-contest blowout, it’s not uncomon to find yourself sitting there, pondering other things that might entertain you — like dipping a hot dog into your friend’s nacho cheese? And really, this was a strong dip, not just a touch of cheese. It was a “let’s see what this is all about and if I like it I might do it forever” kind of dip.
But was there anything really wrong with this aggressive action? We live in a world loaded with slobs who stroll their fat asses onto airplanes carrying half-eaten Big Macs and a bag of fries, and people who happily pollute themselves with stuffed-crust pizza, as if the cheese on the slice just doesn’t suffice.
Surprising? No. Unapologetically fat? YES.
