HIS CLAIM THAT HE COULD EAT A HOT DOG IN JUST TWO BITES WAS – – –
HOL AAT DROW WSL = HARD TO SWALLOW
Good Morning, Everyone! 🌭 BITING OFF MORE THAN HE CAN CHEW? 🌭
🎶 Oh HOT diggity, DOG ziggity, boom what you do to me..It’s so new to me, what you do to me…HOT diggity, DOG ziggity, boom what you do to me…When you’re holding me tight…🎶 “Hot Diggity Dog Ziggity Boom – Perry Como 1956
🌭 The streets of New York City have Hot Dog carts amok,
Some people say that eating from them just may press your luck…
We call them Dirty Water Dogs…not appetizing true,
But trust me they taste really good, you may not stop at two…
They’re HOTLY served as you stand there..aromas wafting ’round,
They stand APART from other carts which on the streets abound…
But taking on a Foot Long in two bites…a WISELY move?
One wonders what’s the reasoning, what does he want to prove?
I doubt that he’ll get DROWSY…but it seems that he might choke,
It really is a lot to chew no matter who the bloke…
I wonder can he do it? Or embarrassment may follow…
A Foot Long in only 2 bites? Yea, it sounds HARD TO SWALLOW 🌭
Running way behind schedule, and admittedly a little scatter-brained this morning, and WURST for wear, I can’t find my list of the Archive research…But I do recall that WORDSY was used before, twice I think. Funny…I guess that one stuck in my mind because the shoe fits…Yes, I’m WORDSY…Yes, guilty as charged! Yes…see what I mean??? Anyway, the Early Birds CHOKED a little at WISELY, and found HOTLY the tiniest bit HARD TO SWALLOW…but other than that…the rest WENT DOWN EASILY...So, they really wouldn’t CHEWS any word as a stumper…And now, without further aCHEW…on to our puzzle…
Today Jeff takes us outdoors to a Beachfront location. We see three young teens, discussing the possibility of eating a FOOT LONG in just two bites. The HOT DOG is the one on the middle, wearing the red cap. Growing up in Brooklyn, NY, I knew a lot of HOT DOGS…You know, those guys who’d brag about themselves, and dare you to believe that they could do the wildest things. Sometimes they’d even Double Dare you..that just meant you got two chances to join in the stupidity...Anyway, as I said, the Monkey in the middle, insists that he can ingest the entire Foot Long in two bites..and MUSTARDS up the old…”Just watch me”...Yep, he’s ON A ROLL…And we hear his friends telling him that there’s no way it can be done…he’d be BUN in a million if he could pull it off…What’s he thinkingthat they’re going to do? Stroke his ego? Give him CONDIMENTS? “Oh, you’ve made the Honor ROLL“….Please…FRANKly, I doubt it myself, but then again, what do I know this morning..l’m so behind schedule that I’m still playing KETCHUP…But in answer to our question…His claim was just too…HARD TO SWALLOW! Ha! CHEW on that, Folks! David’s given us another good one to RELISH!
Ok, eye candy. The only color we see is in the front of the panel. The three teens, left to right are wearing T-Shirts of purple, black, and green. And the Hot Dogs are brown. Our teen at left seems to have already eaten his, since his white paper tray, which is half the size of the other two is empty. I guess he was quick..the DACHSHOUND… Our teen at right, is shown having eaten half of his dog. And of course, our guy in the middle is shown getting ready to play WEINER TAKES ALL. In the background, we see blue sky, and the blue of the SURF and it’s waves, but I’m a little blue to SEA that there’s no designation line to SEA the sand. And I’m sure Jeff meant for us to SAVOR the entire scene, you know, give us a little TASTE of the warmer weather that’s soon approaching…Almost obliterated in all that blue, is the HOT DOG CART, with the words FOOT LONGS emblazoned on its front, and an accompanying picture 🌭 of the culinary deBITE. Various condiment containers can be seen atop the cart, and it sits along with the vendor, under the huge ubiquitous umbrella. The vendor, a bald man with a rather bushy mustache, wears a full bib-front apron and holds tongs in his right hand. But for some SEASON, he’s wearing a rather SAUER expression…Maybe it’s the heat…or WURST, maybe business is bad, and he’s not ROLLing in the dough…And of course, being near the ocean, WATER you think we can see way, way out on a wave beyond the cart? Jeff’s signature sinking sailboat? And WATER you think the eye candy’s going to be?…Wrong! Not today! It’s not what’s floating my boat! Today, I’m going with the RED CAP. If you look real closely, there’s an image of a figure on a SURF Board ..but it’s drawn coming out of an INKWELL. And there’s a WEB CARTOON called “The Inkwell“. And I’m pretty sure that’s the INKWELL MAN, SURFING on the cap. I mean, I can be wrong, but what’s the WURST that can happen if I am? I get deemed a HOT DOG? Yea, go ahead...I dare ‘ya! So, There you have it Folks, BUN, I mean Done! Have a great day, Everyone….And remember…Don’t ever BITE off more than you can CHEW…We can’t all be Oscar WEINERS in life…but we all can play some kind of a ROLL! 🌭🙋🏻
