We don't yet know where Lori Midson was eating yesterday, but it involved a hot dog with a lot of ketchup. Which inspired Mantonat to serve up a classic quote from Clint Eastwood in Sudden Impact:
"God...this stuff isn't getting to me -- the shootings, the knifings, the beatings. Old ladies being bashed in the head for their social security checks. Nah, that doesn't bother me. But you know what does bother me? You know what makes me really sick to my stomach? It's watching you stuff your face with those hot dogs! Nobody, I mean nobody, puts ketchup on a hot dog!"
If you can't use ketchup on a hot dog, what is appropriate? Go ahead, make our day!
