FIRST THEY CAME FOR THE HOT DOG MEN...:

Hot Dog Vendor Gets Terrorism Insurance: Policy Covers Vendor, Customers (Channel 4000, April 8, 2003)
A hot dog cart vendor in Harrisburg is making sure he's prepared for the worst.

"I'm the first hot dog vendor in all of Pennsylvania to have terrorism insurance," vendor Daniel Krehling said. "It's a $1 million policy."

Krehling knows he may not be a huge target, but his stand is sandwiched between City Hall, the county courthouse, and lots of downtown high rises.

Krehling said the policy covers anything that happens to anyone or anything in a 50-foot radius of his hot dog cart, which includes him and his customers.


Frankly, insurance salesmen relish red hot customers like this weenie. Posted by Orrin Judd at April 9, 2003 7:02 PM

Before I'm forced to say something about cutting the mustard, will someone please remind Orrin that the pun is officially the lowest form of humor? ;)

I don't know, John. I'm just trying to play catch-up.

"A hot dog cart vendor in Harrisburg is making sure he's prepared for the worst."



Well, this sentence is quite funny when read by a Dutch-speaking reader like me. "Worst" means "sausage" in Dutch (the relationship with the German word "Wurst" is quite obvious). I really hope a hot dog seller is prepared for the sausage, otherwise he would disappoint quite a lot of costumers.
