Crucified Hot Dog Art Leads To Thoughtful Discussion

What did the Dalai Lama say to the hot dog vendor? "Make me one with everything."
My nine-year-old asked why the sticker was placed on the sign.

"It's art. It has no purpose, other than to look cool," I answered.

The kid nodded. At nine some concepts can be understood perfectly.

"Like people love hot dogs so much they think they're Jesus Christ."

"That might be true."

"Or maybe the hot dog rebelled against the evil overlords and was punished."

"Works for me."

"Who would do that to a cute hot dog?"

"I'm not sure, but if the artist could hear this conversation I believe he would be pleased."
