Things You Didn’t Know About Thailand: Hot Dogs

Sausages are advertised very heavily in Thai television. But to an American, they look exactly like hot dogs.

I see a pale piece of flavorless processed meat, but the ads show the hot dog being breathlessly broken in two by a twenty something male model, steam rising from the warm, delicious center of… well, processed meat. It really doesn’t look any different from a hot dog to me. Or more appetizing.

I mean, I know that I’m vegetarian, so maybe my judgement is a little skewed, but living in DC, we have a lot of good food carts that sell sausages that look pretty good. DC even has a signature one: the half smoke.
