"sweet" as in "cool"


Tim saw this one in Ralphs. No aspect of this photo is not terrifying. Crunchy Dogs? The cartoon kids? Quotation marks? Crazy.

The character at the bottom, in a highly muffled voice: “Sweeeet.”

The character at the top: “Totally.”

maybe these dogs are a joke food like the onion flavored gum…you bite in expecting sweet only to find an “enjoyable” surprise!

I think it's funny that the "sweet" turkey dogs came from Ralph's- as in I'm going to.

Crispy coating? Hot dogs are already sketchy enough without coating them with ill-defined ingredients.

$5.99 for hot dogs! What's the world comin' to?

"sweet" = childhood obesity

I like to imagine that they are "sweet" as in they taste like candy! mmm, turkey candy!

Those are some scary, scary children. Check out the teeth on the boy!

My 5 year old has been after me to buy these, but I balked at the $6 price tag.

I think you could have safely put quotations around every word in that product's title, and I'd have no issue with it.

The girl on the bottom looks as if she's just taken a bite and realized how crappy these dogs taste. Or maybe that hair clip sticking into the top of her head is causing her some pain.

Is that girl at the bottom eating FOUR hotdogs? Is that the serving suggestion?

For American children, sadly, yes. I can only imagine the fat content.

these really are sweet! its a total mind-fu*k to eat them. they have a honey-sugar aftertaste...so completely unnecessary.

Hmmm... those hot dogs strongly resemble severed fingers, if you ask me.

Piers said...

I thought they were fingers when i first saw them.
