Irony, With Mustard and KrautPosted: June 18, 2011
I wrote about this event over a year ago, but today I ran across it again and thought it needed to be documented further. Today was the second annual Hot Dog Sale to benefit the American Heart Association.
The cured meats have always been friends of the heart, haven’t they?
Yes, Hot Dogs for Heart Disease. Someone thought that was a good idea. Twice. Someone failed to see the irony in this. Twice.
There it was though, selling hot dogs to raise money to fight heart disease. No one considered that hot dogs are the precursor to heart disease.
I had my two dollars worth of charitable irony with some spicy mustard and a little kraut. Mustard, kraut and a Diet Coke.
A big ol’ irony stack.
