Me: shaming somebody for enjoying a steak well-done or a hot dog with ketchup is classist snobbery

Also me: *throws a tantrum every time my wife bites directly into string cheese*

@mogwai_poet Wait, there's people that will complain about others using ketchup on a hotdog??

@mogwai_poet I am really enjoying the dissonance of being elitist about a hot dog.

@rainwarrior I think that's honestly part of it -- a defense mechanism to let people know that no, seriously, hot dogs are haute cuisine around here

@rainwarrior Every soliloquy rings truer when uttered in front of the Golden Gate Bridge

@mogwai_poet I think I'd forgive someone for being a jerk about a hotdog if they'd couch it in a long comparison against terrible atrocities every time.

@rainwarrior Me too but only if it was a different improvised set of atrocities every time

@mogwai_poet @rainwarrior
Next time somebody complains about that, introduce them to Cachorro Quente, the Brazilian hot dog. It's a profoundly anarchist creation topped with peas, corn and ground beef. I didn't like it.

@craigtimpany @rainwarrior There's no ketchup on that, so it would just prove their point!

(Sounds delicious!)

@mogwai_poet
Ah yes, tacos con frankfurter. In white bread. With mustard.

@craigtimpany I've been trying for five minutes to come up with a reply that won't be misinterpreted as a dick joke and I'm pretty sure it's impossible, so I'm forced to concede your point

@craigtimpany You may be pleased to hear about their Hamtaro let's-plays!

@craigtimpany @mogwai_poet I was all in favour of eating one until you got to salsa, but I take a hard line against onions.

@craigtimpany @mogwai_poet Onions that are going to go in my mouth, I mean. I wouldn't complain about someone else putting one in their own mouth.

...but now that I've seen how Dirty Harry properly prepares the argument I might consider starting the habit.
