 Definition A form of sandwich, or alternatively the sausage that goes in the sandwich, [d] [e]

I'm inclined to think this should be in American English--surely we eat many more hot dogs than you do "across the pond," no?

Removed this sentence:

The Colombian Exposition in Chicago, in 1867, popularised the consumption of sausages.

The Colombian Exposition was in 1893. But if we insert "1893" for "1867," the result is nonsense, because the next sentence says, "By 1893, these sausages had become popular snacks at ballgames." And...what's the source for this latter? --Larry Sanger 11:30, 5 September 2007 (CDT)

On the first point, refer to the discussions on variants of English. It was suggested (by me) in these discussions that the valiant be set by topic and this was shouted down. The article is in Scottish English because that's the variant that I speak, write, was taught and now teach.
As for the Colombian Exposition, I got the date wrong, however the sources still say that this even was significant in popularising hot dog consumption in the U.S. so I'll reword it and add it back in.

Discordianism

Is the bit about discordianism really so important that it needs to be included in the article? There are far, far more important pop culture references, if we're going to get into it. --Larry Sanger 15:18, 5 September 2007 (CDT)

Um... I can see your point. Adding ALL pop culture references will clutter the article. Maybe it should live in a sub-page called Pop Culture References? Yuval Langer 15:26, 5 September 2007 (CDT)
