Excellent!

It took 30 seconds for that to sink in.

But dammit, now I want a hot dog and I never eat them. I don't like rat toenails and assholes. Unless they're slathered with ketchup and onions, of course.

I know I was shirking my blogging duties a little, but this is my favorite joke ever.

Is "toenails and assholes" an east-cost thing, Becks? Here in the hinterlands, they make them out of "lips and assholes".

I don't think that Becka is that far off, you'd be surprised at what the FDA allows in terms of minimum bug and rodent dander, fecal, and whatever their term for "collateral damage" is.

I think toenails sounds nastier. It's probably not an East Coast thing as much as a BeckEye thing. I screw everything up. :)

Ah! I was just curious. During the New Deal, one of the federal work programs was to send people out all over the country with a standardized set of pictures. The person with the pictures would show them to a bunch of people, ask them what they were, record the answers, and then move on to a new town to do it again.

By doing that, they mapped out regional differences in language. For example a submarine, a hoagie, and a hero are all the same kind of sandwich, and they could find out where the different terms are used.

I always thought it would be interesting to see what pictures they chose to use and the dialect maps they came up with.
